Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is set to be neighbors with the Obamas and a first daughter.

Tillerson earlier this month purchased a $5.6 million home in Washington’s Kalorama neighborhood, Washingtonian reported Wednesday.

The house is a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom Colonial Revival, the report said, citing a source with knowledge of the transaction and property records.

Among the other big names in the neighborhood are former President Obama and his family, first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, and Washington Post owner and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.


Tillerson reportedly bought his house from former AOL executive Richard Hanlon and his wife Pam.

Property records show the Hanlons were represented by Washington Fine Properties agent Mark McFadden during the sale. The sale was completed just days after Tillerson was confirmed by the Senate to lead the State Department.

The former Exxon Mobil Corp. CEO’s new home is about an 18-minute walk from the Dupont Circle Safeway where Tillerson was spotted shopping in January.

The Obamas moved into an 8,200-square-foot home in the neighborhood last month. It has eight bedrooms and nine and a half bathrooms.

Bezos in January purchased D.C.’s largest house — the 27,000-square-foot former Textile Museum — also in Kalorama.

Ivanka Trump and her husband, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, also live in Kalorama.

Wilbur Ross, President Trump’s Commerce secretary nominee, bought a $12 million, 10,000-square-foot home in D.C.’s Massachusetts Heights neighborhood in December.

Ben Carson, President Trump’s nominee for Housing and Urban Development secretary, opted for a $1.3 million, 6,400-square-foot mansion in Vienna, Va.
