President Obama's $5.3 million new house
- by Roger Gain
There is life after the white house, and not a bad one.
It's not the White House, but they’ll be fine.
This $5.3 million Washington DC home will host Obama and his family once they leave the white house.
The home was listed for sale at $5.3 million before going off the market in May.
Though it's smaller than the white house, it's still a luxurious residence in a desirable neighborhood in the nation's capital.
It was built in 1928, with 8,200 square feet and nine bedrooms. It is being leased to the Obama and his family by Joe Lockhart, who served as press secretary in President Bill Clinton's White House.
