Obamas have this '£4.8 million mansion to look forward to' when Donald Trump moves into White House

A stunning nine-bedroom mansion has reportedly been named as President Barack Obama's next home when the new president takes to the White House.

President elect Donald Trump may be moving into the traditional home of the commander-in-chief with wife Melania, but this sprawling £4.8 million (AU$7.9 milion) home in Washington DC's swanky Kalorama neighbourhood is said to be the new digs of Barack, Michelle, Malia Ann and Sasha.

The amazing property boasts nine bedrooms and is reportedly owned by Joe Lockhart — who served as the White House press secretary under Bill Clinton - and his wife, Giovanna Gray Lockhart, Glamour magazine's Washington editor, CNN reports.

Built in 1928, the home boasts eight-and-a-half bathrooms, hardwood floors, a two-car garage and stunning gardens, according to property records.
The 8,200-square-foot property also features a foyer and gallery with a gorgeous black-and-white marble checkerboard floor, leading to an enormous living room.

There are two en-suite guest bedrooms with walk-in closets, as well as four smaller bedrooms on the top floor which could be used by Secret Service agents.

And there is a special suite that could be perfectly suited to First Lady Michelle Obama's mother, Marian Robinson, who currently lives with the family at the White House.

The impressive property, which is situated just two miles from the official presidential residence, was last sold in May 2014 for $5.3million (£3.6million), records show.
The family are said to be staying in the area for the sake of their youngest daughter, says the Las Vegas Review Journal .

“We’re going to have to stay a couple of years in DC probably so Sasha can finish,” he said in March.

“Transferring someone in the middle of high school? Tough.”

Sasha attends the prestigious Sidwell Friends School in the city.

The Obamas may have to pay a whopping $22,000 (£15,000) a month to rent the mansion while they remain in DC, according to the real estate website Zillow.

The family already own a luxury 6,200-square-foot home in Chicago, Illinois.
