She debuted the impressive space back in 2020 during a chat with Barack on her podcast, The Michelle Obama Podcast. The room features high ceilings with white wooden floors, one suede armchair, and another patterned armchair. There's also a black glossy leather sofa seen in the background, as well as a large flat-screen TV.

Worth $8.1million home, the home dates back to the 1920s, with nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, an enormous garden and terrace, a two-car garage, and an additional courtyard for another eight to ten vehicles, because who doesn't need that?

Michelle and Barack Obama have two daughters, Sasha and Malia

After Donald Trump took over as President in January 2017, the couple stayed nearby in the Kalorama neighbourhood of Washington so that their youngest daughter Sasha could finish school. 

When they first moved in, Michelle joked with Ellen DeGeneres on her television show, saying that Barack had been shortchanged with the new home. "He doesn’t have enough closet space – sorry," she quipped. "He's got the smallest room for his office."

Their daughter, Sasha, meanwhile, has clearly lucked out. "She has this two-room suite," Michelle explained. "It's all decked out. She's got a living room area and bedroom, and he designed it. So he's really hating on her."

The couple were reported to have bought the home for £6.2million, while they also own an additional property in the celebrity haunt of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. It is reportedly worth $11.75 million and has seven bedrooms, two guest wings, an outdoor swimming pool, and its own private beach and boathouse.
