Barack Obama’s childhood home is for sale in Hawaii for $ 2 million
A modest mansion in Hawaii, where Barack Obama lived with his mother and grandmother, is for sale for $ 2.2 million, writes Forbes.
In the house, which is located on a busy street in the state capital of Honolulu, the young Barack Obama lived with his family while his mother studied at the University of Hawaii nearby. The Obama family rented this house for the duration of their stay in Hawaii. In 2006, the house sold for $ 1.3 million.
The main house of 185 sq. m. with three bedrooms and two bathrooms is located on a plot of 10 acres. Behind it is another small one-bedroom house with access to a quiet street. The property is located in the prestigious area of Manoa, within walking distance of public schools and many shops.
The current owner of the property is the Church located behind the house. The main cottage was rented for a long time for $ 3,700 a month. And in a small house lived the pastor of the Church. The Church is now selling both properties to raise money to expand the parish.
With wooden floors and floor-to-ceiling Windows, the house still conveys a rustic atmosphere. It was built in the 1940s, like many homes in the area. In the 1960s, it was renovated, including the installation of Windows with noise insulation.
The mansion was put up for sale a few weeks ago, but it has already caused a stir in the local market. However, according to the agents, most of the “clients” did not think about buying, but just wanted to take a picture in the house of the former us President.
