What can you get for $2.4 million? Many material things obviously, but sometimes money can also buy you something invaluable- like a chance to live near the United States president. A house on a lot in front of President Joe Biden’s home in a suburb of Wilmington, Delaware, is set to go on sale publicly Monday, according to listing agent Michael Kelczewski of Brandywine Fine Properties Sotheby’s International. Before you get excited about the pros of living in this property, you need to be aware of the cons too.
If such proximity to POTUS comes with increased security, it also brings along excessive scrutiny. This means you need to give the nod to living with constant checkpoints and blocked streets in your neighborhood and having your IDs tediously checked each time returning home. The French Provincial style home spreads across 8,700-square-foot and is a stunning 5-bedroom mansion that features a movie room, gym area, and a wet bar.
The immense structure boasts a total of 8700 Sq.ft. of living area that opens through large European-inspired doors to enter the expansive foyer. Homes in the area near Biden’s residence have sold for an average of about $260 per square foot in the last year. The current owners ask for $2.39 million for the home purchased in 2002, $1.6 million. According to county records, another house shares a property line with the Bidens sold for $1.25 million in September 2020.
