The Vineyard, of course, is where they would take two weeks a year in the summers when Barack Obama was president.
Now they can be on vacation all the time. Thirty acres, secluded — no riff raff — seven bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, and 7,000 square feet.
Seems by the state of the country after Obama left office that he was pretty much on vacation most of the time during his presidency too. Or at least, nobody was home, you could say.
According to the Vineyard Gazette:
Former President Obama and his family are now permanent homeowners on Martha’s Vineyard, after completing the purchase today of a large home situated on nearly 30 acres in the coastal perimeter of Edgartown.
The purchase price, recorded at 3:31 p.m. with the Registry of Deeds, is listed at $11.75 million. The buyer is a nominee trust representing the former First Family. The sellers are Wycliffe Grousbeck and Corinne Basler Grousbeck. Mr. Grousbeck is a private equity investor and owner of the Boston Celtics basketball team.
The sprawling 6,892-square-foot house sits on 29.3 secluded acres fronting the Edgartown Great Pond between Slough Cove and Turkeyland Cove, with views of a barrier beach and the ocean beyond.
