The checkered marble floor in the foyer strikes a balance between fashion and tradition, which echoes the decor of the living room several feet away.

There's a sitting area at one side of the king-size bed, which is perfect for the couple to have some private talks or light reading before bed.

The master bedroom features adjoining "his and her" bathrooms. "Her bathroom" is typical of Michelle's taste. Two "Elle" signs and a leopard-print seat add a chic touch to the graceful space.

7. His Master Bathroom

Though the two bathrooms share a similar palette, Barack's bathroom employs more of a Scandinavian style by involving minimal items.

8. A Dressing Room

As a couple who usually appear in the spotlight, they need a sizable walk-in closet to support their stylish dressing. However, Michelle once told Ellen Degeneres that Obama didn't share enough space from it. "Sorry," she joked.

9. Sasha Obama's Suite

Though Sasha was Barack's youngest daughter, she has lived in the biggest bedroom in the mansion since she was just a baby. Her suite consists of a living room and a bedroom where the furniture was all custom-made to her size.

10. Malia Obama's Attic Room

Compared to her younger sister, Malia's attic bedroom seems much more humble. Michelle once joked, "She's away at college. You don't waste rooms on college kids."

11. Barack's Home Office

However, Malia's bedroom is still not the smallest room in the house. On The Ellen Degeneres Show, Michelle revealed that her husband got the smallest one as his office, containing floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a stepper.

12. The Kitchen

The pantry neatly stores the dishes and some handy appliances including a toaster. The former president once disclosed that he liked to make a cheese toast himself for breakfast, which had been a big no-no during his presidency in the White House.

The house is also designed with enough guest rooms to accommodate the family's friends. Just like other bedrooms, this guest room looks fresh and neat with only delicate shades.

The backyard has a piece of green lawn with a flagstone path around it. Plenty of outdoor sunbeds lie there for the family and guests to have a rest in the gentle breeze and golden sunshine.

20. The Security Arrangements

The marvelous property sits in a gated community of Kalorama. To further enhance his family's safety, Obama erected 6-foot fences around the house. The structure has such tight security that it was once joked by Donald Trump to be a 10-foot-walled fortress.
