For Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner, the search is over! Well, the housing search that is. Though it was reported in late November that President-Elect Donald Trump's wife and son, Melania and Barron Trump, would not be moving to D.C. later this month, it was hinted that Ivanka and Kushner might. Several outlets hand-picked a few houses on the market that they thought would suit the couple, but it appears they chose on their own with some assistance from Washington Fine Properties.
According to Washingtonian Magazine, the couple will live at 2449 Tracy Place NW in Kalorama -- the same neighborhood where the Obama family will reportedly live after they vacate the White House. Washington Fine Properties has confirmed that it represented both the buyer and seller in the deal, but could not confirm the location of the house due to contractual obligations to their client. Yet, Washingtonian says that the 2449 address was confirmed by "multiple real-estate sources." The six-bedroom, six-bathroom house was sold on December 22 for $5.5 million, but it is unknown whether Ivanka is the buyer, or if she and Kushner will be renting from the buyer.
This will actually be Ivanka's return to D.C. as she previously spent two years at Georgetown University before transferring to Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania, where she graduated in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in economics.
We sent our photographer out to get a few shots of Ivanka's new home, and ironically we discovered that the property is exactly 92 steps away from the front door of the Office of the Defense, Military, Air and Naval Attaches for the Embassy of the Russian Federation in D.C.
