Obamas to Buy Luxury Home Near Palm Springs

A real estate agent who refused to be identified told the Los Angeles Times that the Obamas plan to buy a luxury home in the Palm Springs, Calif. metro area that has been the home of former presidents and legendary Hollywood stars.
The spectacular property with a breathtaking view is nestled against a bighorn sheep preserve. The 8,232-square-foot estate covers 3.29 private acres and is going for aboutĀ $4.25 million and comes with elevators and spas.
The centerpiece of the jaw-dropping desert property is a spacious, ultra-modern main house with:

  • four bedrooms;
  • four and a half bathrooms;
  • and a “master retreat” complete with gym;
  • tanning rooms;
  • elevators; two spas;
  • a private rock-formed lagoon; stunning panoramic views;
  • and a misting system to help cope with the sweltering desert heat.

The report says the first family has the homeĀ in escrow on the custom-built compound in the ritzy Thunderbird Heights community of Rancho Mirage, Calif.
Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby once owned homes in the exclusive gated enclave.
“This isn’t true,” a White House official told the Daily News Monday, shooting down the report.
If the reports are true, however, it would not be unprecedented for a former president to leave the white house for the exclusive desert paradise. Gerald Ford also lived in the “playground of the presidents” when he left the Oval Office.
