A fashionable DC neighborhood already well known for its high-profile residents now has another big name to add to the growing list. New U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson just purchased a multi-million dollar home in Kalorama, the same area that former President Barack Obama and current first daughter Ivanka Trump already call home.

According to recent records, Tillerson purchased the home for $5.6 million from a former AOL executive about a week after his Senate confirmation. Constructed in the late 1920s, the semi-detached home offers a basement, three fireplaces and a two-car garage. It also includes four-bedrooms and 4.5-baths.

Noted for its sprawling homes and exclusive properties, Kalorama is quickly shaping up to be “The Place to Live in 2017”. Several influential names in the political world are either making plans to move to the community or already call Kalorama home.

Other upscale residences, including the soon-to-be home of the eldest daughter of President-Elect Donald Trump, surround the $5.3 million mansion.

Another member of the soon-to-be first family is setting down roots in the DC area. Ivanka Trump, eldest daughter of President-Elect Donald Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner just signed off on a home in Kalorama.

The six-bedroom home also offers 5.5-baths, a garden, sunroom and five fireplaces. While records show the home sold in late December for $5.5 million it has not been released whether Ivanka and her husband purchased the home themselves or whether they are renting from the new buyer.
