Our favorite former POTUS has decided that he needs some well-earned rest, along with his superstar wife. Barack and Michelle Obama have decided to go ahead with the purchase of an uber-luxe vacation home on the beautiful island of Martha's Vineyard.
The estate, formerly owned by Boston Celtics owner, Wyc Grosbeck, has now been handed over to the Obamas.
