The former President, Barack Obama, and first lady, Michelle, have recently closed on a beautiful $11.75 million dollar mansion in Martha’s Vineyard and you won’t believe how amazing it is, from the setting with spectacular panoramic views, the design of the home, and even the interior. What an amazing place to spend your retired days after spending two full terms in the Oval office. According to Realtor, the 7,000 square foot home is located in Tony Island, which is in the Edgartown section of the isle off the mainland of Massachusetts. The couple had rented the property during the summer months and already been having discussions of purchasing the property from prior owner, Wyc Grousbeck of the Boston Celtics. Apparently an agreement was made and the Obama’s now own this incredible estate and you’ll get to have a peek inside. So, here’s a closer look at the Obama’s new $11.75 million dollar Martha’s Vineyard mansion.
