Take a Peek Inside the $17 Million Martha's Vineyard Home Where the Obamas Vacationed
THE CHILMARK HOUSE
Back in 2013, former President Barack Obama and his family vacationed in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, over the summer — and they did it in luxury. Now, the 7,000-square-foot residence they called home during the trip is up for sale — for $17.75 million. PEOPLE has a look inside the Chilmark House.
THE LAY OF THE LAND
The view from above shows off the home's expansive grounds. When you're not on one of the outdoor terraces or the screened porch, work on your game on the home's half-basketball court.
THE VIEW THROUGH
"This spectacular home flows continuously between interior and exterior spaces,” Sotheby’s says in the home's listing. The Chilmark House sits on nine-and-a-half acres of land.
COOKING INDOORS AND OUT
The chef's kitchen comes with a designated sitting area, custom casework and even a fireplace. There's also an outdoor kitchen, if you want to cook up something good with a view of the ocean.
LIVING IN STYLE
The home has oak and radiant-heated limestone floors throughout, and a stunning entrance foyer. The space leads into a dining room and great room, which Sotheby's says features "soaring ceilings" and an oversized wood burning fireplace. Oh, and covetable floor to ceiling windows.
GUESTS OF HONOR
The entire space was designed as a "canvas" for art, according to Sotheby's. In fact, the listing dubs the home an "art collector's dream." And the current owners are giving the buyers a head start on decor: an image of the Obamas comes with the house.
OLD WORLD DECOR
The home boasts six bedrooms and five full bathrooms, all decorated in its signature New England meets modern style.
After a few laps in the heated infinity pool, residents can head down to the private beach or sit on the private dock on Chilmark pond.
