Former President Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama, are buying a $15 million home in Massachusetts.
TMZ reports the former presidential couple is in the final stages of closing a deal on a Martha’s Vineyard estate with a 6,892-square-foot home and a 29-acre beachfront plot.
According to the report, the Obamas have been renting the place over the summer and decided to move forward with purchasing it.
The New York Post reports:
It was most recently on the market asking $14.85 million, but the Obamas are apparently paying less.
The property at 79 Turkeyland Cove Road in Edgartown, Mass. — owned by Boston Celtics chief Wyc Grousbeck — has a living room with vaulted ceilings and a stone fireplace, a chef’s kitchen and a formal dining room with giant windows, according to the property’s Realtor.com listing.
The Obamas will bunk in the master suite, which has a fireplace and private sun deck.
Grousbeck initially put the palatial property on the market in 2015 for $22.5 million.
In 2017, the Obamas dropped $8.1 million on a nine-bedroom house in the Washington, DC, neighborhood of Kalorama.
The deal is currently in escrow and is not a done deal yet.
Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino, tweeting about the purchase, called the presidential duo “frauds” and said: “C’mon, they don’t NEED a $15,000,000 estate right?”
“They want to share the wealth, and tell YOU what you need but they don’t want those rules to apply to them. Liberals are frauds, be glad you’re not one when you look in the mirror,” he added.
