After calling Washington, D.C. home for eight years, President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, have put down permanent roots in the city: They officially purchased the mansion they've been renting, for $8.1 million, The New York Times reports.

The Obamas' new-ish neighborhood is Kalorama, an exclusive and wealthy enclave that is home to a host of politicians and diplomats; Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, as well as Rex Tillerson live there.

According to The Washington Post, the price tag makes the Obamas' new home the second-most expensive in the neighborhood. Jeff Bezos' $23 million mansion (the former Textile Museum) is No. 1.

Located just two miles from the White House, the Obamas' new 8,200-square-foot house has nine bedrooms and 8½ bathrooms — plenty of space for the former first family.

A marble floor makes the home feel luxurious from the moment you step in.

Two of the home's eight other bedrooms will go to the Obamas' daughters, Sasha and Malia. Still in high school, Sasha has at least two more years under her parents' roof.
