Obama Family's New DC Home Construction

President Obama's New DC Home Needed 1 Major Construction Change For Privacy

The Obama family moved out of the White House in January, but before they could move into their beautiful $5.3 million DC rental, construction crews had to make some last-minute upgrades. According to TMZ, a brick wall was built to fortify the property and the garage was turned into an office with a bathroom, presumably for the Secret Service to use.

The Obamas will be renting the nine-bedroom, eight-and-a-half-bathroom home until Sasha graduates, making former President Barack Obama the first president to stay in Washington DC after his term since Woodrow Wilson. The home, located in the upscale Kalorama neighborhood, is clearly being protected with all the necessary security measures. And in addition to a new brick wall, the Obamas also got a new neighbor — Ivanka Trump and her family moved in just two blocks away to be closer to President Donald Trump in the White House.
