In what sounds like a setup from a sitcom, the eldest daughter of President-elect Donald Trump will be neighbors with the outgoing President Barack Obama, according to The Washingtonian.
Washington Fine Properties co-owner William F.X. Moody tells Washingtonian that Ivanka Trump has completed a deal for a house in DC. A team of Washington Fine Properties agents represented Trump. The firm also represented the house’s owner in the transaction. Moody would not disclose the house’s location, citing contractual obligations to the client not to share that information. However, multiple real-estate sources say Trump and husband Jared Kushner will move into 2449 Tracy Pl, NW, in Kalorama. That will put the couple less than two blocks from the Obamas, who will reportedly move here post-White House.
While seemingly the most unlikely of neighbors, the Kalorma area where Trump and Obama are both moving is nothing to scoff at, having had famous former residents such Ted Kennedy, and Donald Rumsfeld.
Obama’s future home, as covered in Town & Country will be an 8,200 square foot home. Ivanka’s new home will have six bedrooms, and was reportedly purchased for $5.5 million.
Ivanka has been rumored to be set to serve as Trump’s first lady in Melania’s absence. While it has not been seen for some time, a daughter serving as first lady isn’t unheard of. With Ivanka distancing herself from private business interests, and her move to DC now confirmed, we may be seeing this rumor come to fruition.
