What President Barack Obama will do when he leaves office at the end of his term is still largely unknown. However, we do know one thing about his post-presidency plans: He won’t be going very far.
According to a National Journal report Tuesday, Obama and his family have decided to continue living in Washington, D.C. when his time as president concludes in January of next year.
The Obamas plan to move to the northwest corridor of the district in the Kalorama neighborhood, which is not far from the White House or Sidwell Friends School, where Malia and Sasha Obama currently attend. They reportedly plan to stay there at least several years until both girls graduate.

Fox5DC reports the neighborhood already has intense security because of several ambassadors who live there.
The Obama family will be renting a house that is owned by Joe Lockhart, the former press secretary in Bill Clinton’s administration, Politico reports.
The mansion, which was built in 1928, is 8,200-square feet and has nine bedrooms, plus eight and a half baths.

By choosing to stay in D.C., Obama will become the first president since Woodrow Wilson, who left office in 1921, to stay in the capital after his time as president came to a close. When Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush’s term ended, he chose to move with his wife Laura back to the couple’s ranch in Crawford, Texas where they still reside.
