Life After The Presidency: Take a look at President Obama's $5.3m home

When President Barak Obama completes his tenure at the Presidency he is not moving back to Chicago, the Obama's reveal. They are staying back in Washington, DC where they just acquired a new home, so 15-year-old Sasha Obama can finish out high school at the Sidwell Friends School. 

 

With just one month left for President Obama to step down, renovations to his new home are underway with plans to upgrade the security system and transform part of the garage into a home office.

Barack and Michelle Obama are moving into a $5.3million home in Kalorama, one of Washington DC's most elegant neighborhoods.

The home, built in 1928 with nine bedrooms and eight and a half baths, is tastefully decorated in a white, beige and grey palette.  

The Obamas are leasing the house from Bill Clinton's former press secretary Joe Lockhart and his wife Giovanna Gray, who works for Glamour magazine.

Construction permits obtained show the home will also be outfitted with an upgraded electrical system as well as a cat walk over one staircase.

The stately home has plenty of windows to let in the DC sunshine, hardwood floors, and large rooms - though not as large as White House rooms

There's an upstairs office, in addition to the one being built in the garage, suggesting there's plenty more to come from both Barack and Michelle Obama

Contractors could be seen at work, with a dumpster, excavator, and tent pitched outside the home.

While the stately home is situated just off the street, Secret Service will be guarding the property and an enhanced security system will be installed.
