Michelle and Barack Obama moved out of the White House in 2017 after eight years as First Lady and President of the United States, but the couple still have two impressive properties to call home. 

The power couple own homes in both Washington and Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts which are worth a combined value of $20million. Each property boasts incredible amenities for the couple to enjoy along with their two daughters Malia and Sasha when they visit from college. Get the lowdown on the two properties below…

The Obamas also own a holiday home in Martha's Vineyard

The family have an $11.75 million mansion in the celebrity enclave of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts and it is utterly stunning. 

The property has been in the news recently as Obama's chef Tafari Campbell sadly died while paddleboarding on the on-site lake. 

The home has seven bedrooms, two guest wings, and an outdoor swimming pool. It sits on a sprawling 29-acre estate with beautiful sea views, and even has its own private beach and boathouse.

The former president and his family headed to their idyllic country bolthole on the Island for seven out of the eight years he was in office. It was snapped up by the couple in December 2019 for $3milllion less than the original asking price, and after lots of renovations, they moved in.

The property's listing on LandVest also reveals the family's vacation home also offers direct access to the lake and includes a boat house situated on a private beach front.

The Obamas also own an $8.1million home in the exclusive Kalorama neighbourhood, just five minutes away from The White House in Washington D.C. The property has frequently appeared in Michelle Obama's Instagram posts.

Barack and Michelle made the decision to stay in Washington after his presidency so that their youngest daughter Sasha could complete her high school education. They bought a nine-bedroom Tudor-style mansion that spans 8,500-square-feet and sits on a quarter-acre of land.

Michelle took to Instagram to share a beautiful black and white portrait of herself reclining in an armchair at her luxurious Washington, D.C. home with her 52million social media followers. The mom-of-two revealed some rarely-seen family photos too!

Michelle shared a glimpse of her treasured family photos

The former US President also offered up a rare look into his beautiful family home when he addressed his millions of followers about his book. He sat on a salmon pink couch with a striped pattern, and this colourful sofa could not be further from the minimalist cream ones that Barack had within the walls of the White House.

Sasha is even lucky enough to have her own suite in the house, complete with a separate living area. Michelle opened up about her daughter's room during an interview on Ellen in 2018, telling host Ellen DeGeneres: "Sasha actually killed in this house. She has a two-room suite, it's all decked out. She has like a living room area and a bedroom."

What's more, Sasha even designed it herself. While Sasha has the best deal in the room department, her dad didn't get quite so lucky. "He's got the smallest room for his office. So he's really hating on her," Michelle joked.

We've recently been given a glimpse in what appears to be the family home as Michelle has been recording her podcast, Becoming. One Instagram photo shows Michelle and Barack sitting together in their living room, which has 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.

The family home also has a rooftop terrace

Another social media post revealed a beautiful rooftop terrace, which overlooks their neighbourhood and has been furnished with sofas and an outdoor dining table.
