The Obamas' New DC Neighborhood? Signs Point to Sheridan-Kalorama

President Barack Obama and his family are in their final months of living in the White House, and speculation on where they will move is now focused on the Sheridan-Kalorama neighborhood.

Sources tell the National Journal the Obamas will rent a house in the quiet, upscale neighborhood of Northwest D.C.

Knowledgeable real estate agents pointed News4 to 10 Kalorama Circle, which is private and has hidden-away, off-street parking. It was available for lease for $9,500 per month and went off the market last week, agents said.

When News4 called the real estate agency for the house and identified ourselves, the phone went dead. No one answered follow-up calls.

Neighbors said the Obamas would fit right in.

"There are 30 kids on our street. It's become a very neighborhood-y place to live," historic preservationist and longtime resident Sally Berk said.

The heavily wooded area abuts Rock Creek Park and, filled with embassies, is already heavily patrolled by federal law enforcement officials.

President Barack Obama said in March that his family may stay in Washington "a couple of years" so his younger daughter doesn't have to change high schools.

The president was asked at a lunch in Milwaukee whether his family plans to return to Chicago after his term ends Jan. 20, 2017.

"You know, we haven't figured that out yet," he said. "We're going to have to stay a couple of years in D.C. probably, so that Sasha can graduate. 'Cause transferring somebody in the middle of high school ... tough."

The Obamas officially move out Jan. 20, less than eight months from now.
