Obama Buys $11m Beachside Property– No Fear of Sea Level Rise? 7,000-square-foot home a few feet above sea level
By Paul Homewood
Former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama have purchased a nearly 7,000-square-foot home on Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts for $11.75 million, according to a report.
The purchase price was recorded Wednesday with the local Registry of Deeds, the Vineyard Gazette reported.
The Obamas paid about half the original asking price for the property when it first became available in 2015, the report said.
The sellers were listed as Wycliffe Grousebeck, owner of the Boston Celtics basketball team, and his wife Corinne Basler Grousbeck.
The house is located in the Edgartown section on the eastern end of the island and sits on a property of more than 29 acres, the Gazette reported.
Of course, the thing about Martha’s Vineyard is that it is a low lying island. And the thing about Obama’s mansion is that it is on the beach front.
WhatsMyElevation lists the elevation of their home as being 3 feet above sea level. Others place it at 10 feet.
Either way, either the Obamas made a very stupid investment, or they don’t believe in the nonsense that they tried to bankrupt their country for.
Of course, Obama did promise us in 2008 that we will be able to look back and tell our children this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow.
Maybe he really was the Messiah after all!
