President Obama's Martha's Vineyard Getaway Now on the Market

New, 1 comment

President Obama's de facto "Summer White House," Martha's Vineyard's Blue Heron Farm is now up for sale. The 28.5-acre estate, which rents for $50K per week, includes two houses (perfect for your Secret Service detail), an equestrian setup, bocce ball court, gym, and private beach. The owner, timber mogul William Van Devender, is actually a Republican, but partisan politics haven't kept him from hosting Obama or President Clinton, who had a dinner in his honor there in 1998. That said, the White House would probably have preferred the rich woodsman waited until after the election to try and sell the President's vacation home for an eye-watering $24.5M.
