President Barack Obama is leaving the White House after eigth years in office. The Obama family is moving to a luxurious brick mansion they’ll be renting in the exclusive Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, D.C. It’s not quite the White House, but with eight bedrooms and 8,200 square feet, it still has plenty of space to stretch out. Peek inside Obama’s new house.
Hello sweet castle! The four-level residence has nine bedrooms and has eight full bathrooms. Amenities include three fire places, a wet bar, an oversize terrace with formal gardens, and a gated courtyard that can accommodate eight or so vehicle.
The sprawling 8,200-square-foot home was built in 1928, and its traditional bones have been tastefully updated with modern fixtures and decor.
A clean, traditional aesthetic is similar to the Obamas’ current White House setup.
The house was once owned by Capt. Charles Hamilton Maddox, who served in both world wars and who tested radio equipment used in the Navy’s aircraft. Maddox’s daughter Muriel appeared with Marlon Brando in 1950s “The Men” and also authored romance novels.
The house is furnished in muted pastel shades. Bright living room occupies the greater part of the ground floor. It also has a fireplace, which is a centerpiece of the living room and can be used in winter.
The historic 1920s home has a charming brick-lined fireplace.
This is one of the eight rooms.
The white painted kitchen features an extended table/sink combination topped by white and gray marble.
The house has beautiful garden – perfect for enjoying the sunny days.
