IT’S NOT THE White House, but it’ll do.

The Obamas settled on a post-Pennsylvania Avenue house to call home after the president leaves office at the end of this year, according to Politico. They will lease the home until their younger daughter, Sasha, finishes high school.

The home was listed for sale at $5.3 million (€4.95m) before going off the market in May.

Though it’s smaller than their current, more famous abode, it’s still a lavish residence in a desirable area of the capital of the US. It was built in 1928, with 8,200 square feet and nine bedrooms.

It’s being leased to the Obamas by Joe Lockhart, former President Bill Clinton’s White House press secretary.

The house is completely gated and private, although it sits close to the road:

There is, however, a touch of the mini-White House about it inside, with marble-effect tiling and stately reception rooms:
