It should be noted that the couple has been looking forward to getting the property since 2018 summer when it was listed by Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck.

Though the house was initially put up for $14.85 million (GHC 84,179,779.20), the Obamas was eventually able to get it for $11.75 million (GHC 66,606,896.00).

The property has a swimming pool, vaulted ceilings, outdoor fire pit, boathouse, private beach, among several other sought-after home features.

Tom Wallace, one of the listing agents, said the home could even be expanded on.

“It certainly has the capacity to expand to more of a compound. One could build two additional full-size properties if one wanted to create a generational meeting place,” he said.

The Obamas fell in love with the home when they rented it during their 2018 summer. It should be noted that the couple sold their previous home for $15 million.

Meanwhile, Lydia Okojie, a Nigerian lady, heartily rushed to her father’s mechanic workshop to celebrate with him after successfully completing the University of Benin. In admirable photos shared on social media, the grateful lady and her father blissfully hugged as they celebrated Lydia Okojie's achievement together.

Social media users have been showering pleasant accolades over the lady for this act of thoughtfulness.
