In January, the Obama’s will move out of the White House residence’s and into a 8,200 sq. ft. Kalorama mansion. President Obama will be the first president to reside in the DC area immediately following his presidency since Woodrow Wilson in 1921.
For those of you not familiar with the Kalorama area of DC, the small NW neighborhood is full of historic architecture, diplomats, and young families. This once rural area is within walking distance of Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, and the U Street Corridor.

The four story home was built in 1928 and has 9 bedrooms, 8.5 baths, 2 car garage, and a gated courtyard. The estate last sold in May 2014 for $5.295 million.
Let’s take a look inside the historic Kalorama mansion.
The sitting area off the family room.
The kitchen is an updated white modern traditional kitchen.
Look at this beautiful master bathroom/ closet combination.
I have a feeling this closet is going to be a little small for the first lady’s wardrobe.
And into the upstairs guest rooms…
The Obama’s Kalorama residence has a great outdoor space for entertaining. Did I mention Rock Creek Park is in their backyard?
