Dukes County, MA – Multiple island sources say former President and Mrs. Barack Obama are in escrow for the estate owned by Boston Celtics Co-owner, Wyc Grousbeck.
The Obamas have been renting the home this summer and loved it so much they made an offer. The property is listed at $14,850,000; however, the former first family is reportedly paying less than listed price.
The almost-7,000-square-foot house is located on a pond outside of Edgartown, one of the island’s six villages. According to the real estate listing, the mansion has “7 bedrooms, 8 baths, multiple entertaining spaces including a vaulted ceiling living room with stone fireplace, a chef’s kitchen, and formal dining room surrounded by a wall of windows,” in addition to a pool, a jacuzzi, a garden, a private beachfront, and a boathouse.
In 2017, a spokesman for the Obamas denied that they were looking to buy on the Massachusetts island that they visited each year during his presidency. But it appears that the recent stay this summer in Grousbeck’s home changed their minds.
