2446 Belmont Road

2446 Belmont Road will soon become famous as the house the Obamas rent after his Presidency.   The house is three stories, brick with Tudor details.  It was built in 1928, and last sold in 2014 for $5.295 million.

The house is close to its neighbors and similar in size to the other large 1920’s houses in this Kalorama neighborhood.  There are a few features that make it easier to guard than other nearby houses:  it has a gated courtyard on one side that has parking for 10 vehicles or space for security equipment, and there is a strip of Rock Creek Park across the street.  It is less than two blocks from the Islamic Center on Massachusetts Avenue, the Embassy of Oman, and the new residence of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
