Obama’s vacation house on Martha’s Vineyard is up for sale

The Martha’s Vineyard vacation house where former President Barack Obama holidayed with his family has hit the market for a whopping $17.75 million.

The Obamas, who spent seven of their eight summers of the presidency on the Massachusetts resort island, stayed at the 7,000-square-foot house back in 2013.

The sprawling property, known as Chilmark House, boasts six bedrooms and five bathrooms with marble baths.

It sits on 9.5 acres of land and has panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, as well as access to a private beach.

The home also features a heated infinity pool, half-basketball court, large screened porch and outdoor terraces.

‘The extraordinary Chilmark House celebrates panoramic ocean views, gracious skylights, huge windows and wonderful detail in both design and materials,’ the selling description reads.

It is being marketed by Sotheby’s as a ‘presidential paradise’ given it served as the 2013 summer White House.


The Obamas are no strangers to the island and were regulars long before the President was in office.

Their younger daughter, Sasha, even worked briefly one summer at one of their favorite spots, Nancy’s Restaurant & Snack Bar in Oak Bluffs.

The family typically spent 10 days to two weeks at a rented beachfront compound, usually on the island’s more secluded western edge in the town of Chilmark.

They were often spotted riding bikes and ventured into town for ice cream and New England fare.

They returned for their annual summer trip in August, which was their first as private citizens.
