so we admit it doesn’t have the grandeur of the White House, but the Obamas’ new pad is still pretty impressive.
The first family will reportedly settle into their new $6 million (£4.8 million) rented Washington home on January 20, after the president hands over the title to, yes, get used to it, President-elect Donald Trump.
The stunning nine-bedroom house which will be home to Michelle, Barack, Sasha and Malia was built in 1928 and is a mere two miles away from the White House.
It’s not typical for a former president to stay on in Washington DC, but Barack and Michelle have decided to stay close by so that their youngest daughter, Sasha, can finish high school.
Speaking on the Jimmy Kimmel show, Obama said: “Our attitude is that, if you have a teenager, and you really want to make sure they never talk to you again, then pull them out of high school, right in the middle of sophomore year.”
Seriously, can Michelle and Barack get any cooler?
