As the new first family gears up for the big move to Washington, D.C., Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner may have found a new home for their family in the nation’s capital.
The 35-year-old businesswoman and her real estate mogul husband have completed a deal for a beautiful home in an elite neighborhood, according to the Washingtonian.
Numerous real estate sources say that Ivanka and her family will be moving to the Kalorama neighborhood of the city, as the 94-year-old recently renovated home the couple is said to be moving into is just blocks away from the Obamas who are said to move into that area once they leave the White House.
Washington Fine Properties Executive Vice President William F.X. Moody represented both the buyer and the seller in the deal.
‘It’s so close to downtown, and it’s about as tony as a neighborhood gets,’ Moody told News4.
He would not confirm the address, but dozens of real-estate sources said the six-bedroom home located at 2449 Tracy Place that was sold in December for a cool $5.5million is where they will be living, according to the Washingtontian.
It’s unclear if the couple purchased the home outright or if they will be renting it from the buyers.
The lavish two-story modern mansion is complete with 6.5 bathrooms and has plenty of space for hosting a large number of family and friends.
There’s also a lovely garden terrace on the second floor of the home that can be accessed via the master bedroom.
In addition, the 6,870 square foot home was recently renovated with classic details that includes a gourmet chef’s kitchen with table space.
The pricey home also has a library, sun-room, a garden that also has irrigation for it, as well as a two car garage.
To stay cozy during the winter months, the new First Family is likely to make use of the five fireplaces inside the large residence that was built in 1923.
The real estate agency who helped the couple reportedly find the home in the tony neighborhood also assisted with others who are apart of the incoming administration.
Commerce Secretary nominee, Wilbur Ross, purchased a home for $12million through Washington Fine Properties, as well as Treasury Secretary pick, Steve Mnuchin whose home is located in the Massachusetts Avenue Heights area.
It’s unclear what role the mother-of-three or her husband will play in the new administration.
It was reported in December that the couple would be planning to move to the nation’s capital.
The former fashion model has said that she hopes to influence several policy areas, including child care for working mothers and maternity leave.
‘Everyone is adjusting to these new circumstances during the transition period, and while Ivanka has no intention of taking a formal role in the administration, she plans to be an advocate for issues she cares deeply about,’ a source close to Ivanka told PEOPLE.
