Barack Obama and his family may be downsizing from the White House, but their new Washington D.C. residence still looks incredible! The former US President, First Lady and their two daughters Malia and Sasha are set to move into a luxurious £5m property when they return from their two-week holiday in California.

The Obamas will settle in Kalorama, the same affluent neighbourhood where First Daughter Ivanka Trump and her family live. Bill and Hillary Clinton also have a house in the area.

According to reports, the 8,200-square-foot mansion boasts nine bedrooms, nine and a half bathrooms, a stunning marble entryway, a large kitchen and a vast garden. It's located just two miles down the road from their old house, the White House.

While the former First Family are downsizing, they will be more than comfortable in their new home, as will their pet dogs Sunny and Bo. There are dog parks for the pooches, and Michelle can spend as much time as she wants in nearby... Target!

Last year the lawyer admitted to Oprah: "I want to go to Target again! I've heard so many things have changed in Target! I tell my friends they're going to have to give me a re-entry training for like, okay, what do you do at CVS now? How do you check out?"

Barack has previously said that the family will remain in Washington while their youngest daughter Sasha, 15, completes high school. Last week he and his wife starred in a video, revealing their plans for the future."First, we're going to take a little break," said Barack. "We're finally going to get some sleep and take time to be with our family. And just be still for a little bit so we might not be online quite as much as you're used to seeing us."

They spoke of plans to create The Obama Foundation, which will focus on citizenship. They asked the public to send in ideas on how the foundation could help them. Barack concluded: "The work of perfecting our unions never finish, and we look forward to joining you in that effort as fellow citizens. Thank you, and we will see all of you again soon."
