After having spent the summer renting an estate owned by Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck, the former first family, Michelle and Barack Obama, have decided to put in an offer for the dreamy vacation home, reports TMZ, who first broke the news. The property is currently in escrow, so its not a done deal yet, but the website reports that both sides are confident.
More about the house from the official listing: This stunning custom home sits on over 29 +/- private acres directly on the Edgartown Great Pond. Custom-designed by Bradenburger Taylor Lombardo Architects from San Francisco, and built by reputable Island builder, John Early, this unique & lavish home is in a league by itself. The long and winding driveway, sprawling lawn and incredible water views make for the perfect family compound setting for generations to come. The nearly 7,000 sq ft main residence is finished with the finest details and is designed with 7 bedrooms, and 8.5 baths, multiple seating and entertaining spaces, a modern Chef’s kitchen, and a formal circular dining room surrounded by a wall of windows overlooking the grounds. The spacious and dramatic living room space boasts vaulted ceilings with exposed steel beams and a focal point stone fireplace. There are two guest wings and an impressive master suite with fireplace, private sun deck and spectacular water views. Your summer days can be spent poolside in a garden-like setting with the sounds of the waves lapping in the distance, or exploring the expansive Great Pond and outer barrier beach for a full day on the water. A property of this stature needs to be seen to be experienced.
