PHOTOS: THE OBAMAS NEW $5.3 MANSION IN WASHINGTON D.C. WITH 9 BEDROOMS AND 8,200 SQ. FT.

Posted on Updated on

The Obamas will lease this $5.3 mansion in Washington D.C. until their younger daughter, Sasha, finishes high school. It was built in 1928, with 8,200 square feet and nine bedrooms. It’s being leased to the Obamas by Joe Lockhart, former President Bill Clinton’s White House press secretary.

The home was listed for sale at $5.3 million before going off the market in May.

The living room is stately.

Going inside is a bit like stepping back in time.

The real family room is downstairs, though.

It's completely gated and private, though it sits close to the road.

    That is a large very interior-handsome house, but it is NOT a mansion and sorely lacks curb appeal.

    Under the Former Presidents Act, each former president is paid a lifetime, taxable pension that is equal to the annual rate of basic pay for the head of an executive federal department — $201,700 in 2015 — the same annual salary paid to secretaries of the Cabinet agencies.

    Each former president and vice president may also take advantage of funds allocated by Congress to help facilitate their transition to private life. These funds are used to provide suitable office space, staff compensation, communications services, and printing and postage associated with the transition. As an example, Congress authorized a total of $1.5 million for the transition expenses of outgoing president George H.W. Bush and Vice President Dan Quayle.

    So…how can they afford a $5.3 million dollar home?

      Probably Terry McAuliffe “helped” the money poor Obamas. He “helped” the Clintons and Comey’s family over the years. Terry McAuliffe is either Santa Claus for the rich and famous or a Wells Fargo guy.

      His net worth is more than the price of this house, and he gets a good flow of income from book royalties. I’m sure after his election he’ll be making a lot for giving speeches as well.

    I think it is very appropriate for a former president and his family. They will have to have some place to entertain. Why don’t we stop picking apart every little thing they do.
