It’s almost impossible to remember a time when Barack Obama wasn’t the most important men of the free world, but current and future owners of the five-bedroom, 3,860-square-foot home at 640 2nd Street in Brooklyn will find a daily reminder of the former President of the United States of America‘s other life. And as far as The Most Expensive Homes‘ editors are concerned, this task will be accomplished successfully as often as possible. Take a tour of the historic home below!
According to The Real Deal, Obama and his then-girlfriend occupied the top floor of the brownstone in the mid-1980s after he graduated from Columbia University.
The luxury real estate —which just hit the market for $4.3 million— was commissioned in 1903 and spans three floors with authentic details still intact, including stained glass windows, four fireplaces, and carved wooden panels, according to 6sqft.com.
The Real Deal also notes that the home has not been on the market for 23 years, making it quite the catch.
In “Barack Obama: The Story,” author David Maraniss said the brownstone was owned by an employee of the Brooklyn Friends School in Park Slope, where his girlfriend worked as an assistant teacher.
