The family will move into an eight-bedroom, nine-and-a-half-bathroom, 8,200-square-foot mansion after they return home from their Palm Springs, Calif., vacation. Though they are only renting it, the home is valued at $6.3 million. (Report: Obama Is Building A Wall In Front Of His New House In Washington)
Obama and his family will be flying out of Andrews Air Force Base to Palm Springs as soon as Trump is inaugurated this week for a reported two week vacation.
The house is owned by NFL executive vice president of communications Joe Lockhart and his wife Giovanna Gray Lockhart, who is the Washington editor of Glamour.
The Obamas are expected to lease it until their youngest daughter Sasha finishes up at Sidwell Friends School. (RELATED: The Swanky DC Mansion Where The Obamas Are Living Next)
