Michelle and Barack Obama have been renting a Kalorama home in DC after leaving the White House and though we all just wish they would just move back there they have decided to take the plunge and purchase the house for a cool $8.1 million.

The home has 8 bedrooms and 9 and a half bathrooms and is gorgeous inside and out according to public records.

Read below from the Washington post:

The Obamas have said they plan to remain in D.C. while their younger daughter, Sasha, finishes high school at Sidwell Friends.

After leaving the executive mansion in January, the family settled into a rental home owned by Bill Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart and his wife, Giovanna Gray Lockhart, an 8,200-square-foot home that was built in 1921 and renovated in 2011.

The Obamas still own a Georgian-style home in the Hyde Park neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago, the city that will house the Obama presidential library.

Spokesman Kevin Lewis, in a statement, said the purchase just made sense for the family: “Given that President and Mrs. Obama will be in Washington for at least another two and a half years, it made sense for them to buy a home rather than continuing to rent property.”

Gorgeous right?
