After the White House, the Obamas Are Moving to a Mansion

 President Barack Obama will soon have completed his two terms as US Head of State, leaving the White House behind him. Some might say that life is all downhill after having ascended the highest office in the world, yet these pictures suggest that Barack and his family are moving to very nice new pastures indeed. The mansion you are about to see here was built in 1928, has grounds of 8,200 feet and nine bedrooms. This future ex-president’s residence, located in the capital Washington D.C., is said to be worth a cool $5.3 million – not bad going for a public servant retiring at the age of 55!

 

Have a look at these stunning photos of the Obamas’ new residence.
