The Upper East Side duplex the Obamas were spotted touring in October
just closed for $9.64 million, according to 6sqft
. The buyer’s name has not been confirmed, but the apartment entered into contract shortly after news broke that the former president and first lady were touring units and a mysterious trust called “Gracie Square Revocable Trust” completed the purchase.The five-bedroom spread in question is located in 10 Gracie Square, a prestigious building that has been home to names like Gloria Vanderbilt and Alexander Woollcott. If the Obama’s are the new owners, they will enjoy perks like a private elevator landing, a massive master suite, East River views, and 11-foot ceilings.In June, the pair snagged a Tudor-style mansion in Washington D.C.
, where they are living while their youngest daughter finishes high school. Perhaps the power couple wants to make New York City home once they’re empty nesters.
