Ivanka and Jared Are Moving Because Their 7,000 Sq. Foot House Isn’t Big Enough
First daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, have been renting a Washington, D.C. mansion since early 2017. The home in the Kalorama neighborhood is 7,000 square feet with six bedrooms. Kalorama is a small, private area that is popular with many politicians because of its seclusion. The Obamas also live in the neighborhood.
Ivanka and Jared rent the home from Chilean billionaire Andronico Luksic for $15,000 per month. He bought the house through a shell company for $5.5 million last year. The Chilean billionaire is the owner of a mining conglomerate and is currently fighting with the federal government over a mineral deposit that is worth billions.
Ivanka and Jared are, however, reportedly displeased with their home and are looking for a new one. Someone with knowledge of the home search said of the couple, “They are actively looking because they’re unhappy with the place they’re in.”
Ivanka and Jared want to stay in Kalorama or move to Georgetown. They are in search of a larger home in one of those two areas. Many in Washington, D.C. have wondered if the couple would stay long in the capital. There has been speculation that they may return to their already established lives in New York.
Ivanka and Jared are not conservatives. They are socially liberal and have donated to Democrats in the past. They have also clashed with the president on policy issues and have had their opinions overruled.
Jared was once one of the people closest to the president. He had a huge portfolio and was tasked with a range of issues, including achieving peace in the Middle East. His role appeared to diminish after it he was unable to get a permanent security clearance because of inconsistencies in his application.
