The Martha’s Vineyard estate that Barack Obama rented while he was president is now on the market at a price of $17.6 million. Obama leased the property, called the Chilmark House, in 2013 during his second term in office. The estate had previously been sold in 2018 for $15 million.
The Chilmark House, a stunning property, offers sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and Chilmark Pond. It was designed by architect Rick Sundberg from Seattle and built by master builder Andrew Flake. This impressive estate features six bedrooms and seven bathrooms and spans more than 7,100 square feet.
The property entrance is marked by a massive glacier-deposited boulder located just inches from the front door, as highlighted in the listing. This estate, set on nearly 10 acres, boasts features like expansive glass walls, a contemporary kitchen with a fireplace, a family room, and a deck with a screened porch, as reported by the New York Post.
The primary suite in the house includes a private study with a fireplace, two dual bathrooms with a deck, and heated floors throughout. The second wing of the house contains three guest bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a dressing room. Outside, you’ll find an array of amenities such as a heated infinity pool, fruit trees, and a half basketball court.
Additionally, the property includes a two-bedroom cottage and a detached three-bay garage. For added convenience, all furniture, artwork, and gym equipment can be purchased along with the property, creating a seamless transaction.
The listing for the property is held by Jen O’Hanlon with Compass. In December 2019, Barack and Michelle Obama purchased a 29-acre estate on the Edgartown Great Pond, which they had previously rented.
