Living in The White House may seem like a dream come true--complete with a 24-hour cooking staff and on-ground vegetable garden--but as President Obamas second term comes to a close, The First Family will soon be on the hunt for a new, less white, house. Although the Obamas plan to remain in Washington until their youngest daughter, Sasha, is finished with high school, as the president announced at a luncheon last month, their plans beyond that are still unknown. With his oldest daughter, Malia, headed to Harvard University next spring, Obama just may find himself back in the city he called home during law school--perhaps in something larger than his leased basement-apartment, though.
Below are homes in the Greater Boston area suited for the First Family:
This beautifully renovated, 19th-century home is located 44 Walker St., just a stones throw from Harvard Square. Warm wood floors pay homage to the homes historic roots, while beautiful granite countertops and stainless steel appliances almost make up for not having a round-the-clock chef. As Mrs. Obama told People Magazine in 2015, in regards to her recent dining-room makeover, family dinners are crucial...just to eat a good meal and catch up. Plus, its white.
In the Farlow Hill Historic District, one of Newtons finest estate neighborhoods, this six bedroom residence beautifully restored in 2011 has an inviting feel with exceptional details.Sitting on sweeping, gated grounds with mature trees and multiple terraces for outdoor living,this impressive English-style country house is just a short drive fromThe Country Club. The dine-in gourmet kitchen adjoins a wonderful family room with which Mrs. Obama can create her dream kitchen. Soon the family may be pictured with iced-tea in hand walking out to their heated three car garage on their way to play a quick nine holes. But first theyll have be accepted into the elite group of The Country Club members--something not even local legend, Tom Brady, has done.
If the Obamas are looking to be a little bit closer to the heart of Boston, they should look no further than Beacon Hill. This building was erected in 1880, but has undergone some major renovations in the past few years, allowing for beautiful, custom finishes and modern amenities to await unassumingly inside a beautiful, historic brick exterior. This home provides the perfect hideaway for the first family--Boston style, with panoramic city views from right in the heart of Beacon Hill.
This breathtakingly beautiful, 11,318 square-foot, countryside mansion is the perfect escape from hectic Washington living. It sits on over 30 acres of rolling, green grass, and is completed by two charming gazebos, a greenhouse, tennis court, tea house, and guest cottage/artist studio among the lush meadows and woodlands, which are sure to cleanse Mr. Obama of every last ounce of stress incurred in the Capital City. Plus, the two presidential pups, Bo and Sunny, will be able to live out their doggy-dreams, after being very popular and so in demand that they have schedules, like the president, according to the New York Post.
Located on over an acres of stunning landscaped grounds, the Obama family would feel right at home in this completely renovated brick Wellesley estate. Including a family room with oversized windows, a gourmet kitchen and a dining room with seating for 20+, this home is perfect for entertaining and family dinners. The home also includes a sun-filled office, 8 fireplaces, six bedrooms and 4 garage parking spaces perfect for the first family of four. The one of a kind lower level includes a basketball court, spacious gym with sauna and steam shower, handsome media room and a billiards room with bar - the Obamas may not even know they left the White House.
This private 10,000 square foot estate located in one of Lexingtons top neighborhoods would be a great match for the Obama family. Like the White House, this home comes complete with an elevator, custom stain glass windows, a large private screening room and a heated 4 car garage. With an easy commute to Boston and Route 128, the Obama family could enjoy the convenience of the city and the privacy of their contemporary oasis. The home includes two private decks, tasteful landscaping and a Har-Tru tennis court which would enable the family to continue playing this lifelong sport the first lady promotes actively.
