President Obama’s Vacation Home Now Officially For Sale

So who’s looking to vacation like the president of the US of A? Better yet, who wants to call that place home?

Presidents tend to select the most exclusive and relaxing locations for a much needed R & R. Just earlier this year, the Clintons chose a private beach estate in the East Hamptons for their week-long getaway.

For the past three years, our now-president Barack Obama has chosen a more laid-back, country ambiance for his family vacations and has headed to Massachusetts to unwind at Blue Heron Farm, a 13,327 sqft, 13 bedroom, 12.5 bath Martha’s Vinyard estate.

Lucky for us, recent reports revealed this compound, owned by Republican businessman William Van Devender, has now officially hit the market for $23.7 million.

The 28.5-acre, incredibly exclusive waterfront compound sits in Chilmark on Tisbury Great Pond and is made up of five main building structures including not one, but two full-size homes – 5,118 sq ft and 3,718 sq ft.  This estate is truly a horse lover’s dream come true! Its beautifully renovated facilities include an eight-stall horse barn that was physically relocated from Pennsylvania and completely rebuilt on the property, an Olympic dressage arena, and six grass paddocks.

Relax poolside in the property’s water view pool with hot tub or enjoy various recreational activities such a par 3 golf course, tennis court, half basketball court, horseshoes, lawn bowling or water sports on Tisbury Great Pond which opens to the great Atlantic. This home appeals to both the active and more relaxed resident, offering the best of both worlds for whatever your mood may be!

So, these are some pretty big vacay shoes to fill, wouldn’t you say? Now that the Obama’s fave spot will no longer be available, where do you think they should vacation next?
