The images of moving van outside the Obamas' new home in the upscale residential neighbourhood of Kalorama were spotted.

The eight-bedroom home is 8,200-square-foot and has nine-and-a-half bathrooms, according to Town and Country, which published pictures of the home's interior.

"I mean, the girls, obviously, you know, they are now of an age in which the constraints of Secret Service and bubbles and all that stuff has gotten pretty old. Michelle never fully took to the scrutiny. I mean, she's thrived as a first lady, but it's not her preference," Obama said.

The family will move into the 8,200-square-foot mansion after they return from their Palm Springs, California, vacation. Though they are only renting it, the home is valued at USD 6.3 million, the report said.
