It has a monthly payment of $1, 223, 162 for it on Zillow.com.

Located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the White House is the official residence of the President of the United Sates and his family. It’s a symbol of prestige and recognized worldwide. Zillow gave its first White House Zestimate in 2009 when the Obama family was preparing to live there. At the time, Zillow estimated it was worth $308 million, based on the home’s 55,000 square feet physical attributes including 132 rooms, 16 family guest rooms, an underground bunker, three kitchens, three elevators and 28 fireplaces. It also has 35 bathrooms and 16 bedrooms. The mansion has an East Wing which serves as offices for the First Lady and her staff. And the West Wing is home to the President’s office and staff. Just like most homes throughout the U.S., the White House’s decline in value was not as dramatic as the previous year. From January 2008 to January 2009, Zillow estimated the White House lost almost $24 million in value, or 7.2 percent.
The White House was built in 1972 and designed by an Irish architect named James Hoban. It’s considered Georgian in the Palladian style with neoclassical influences according to Zillow. The second President John Adams and his wife, Abigail, moved in on November 1, 1800. At that time the White House was only the Residence and was made from sandstone, brick and wood. It was completed for $232,371.83. The Residence contains six levels: the sub-basement (storage, laundry); basement (Diplomatic Reception room, Map Room, kitchen, curator's office, dentist's office, one-lane bowling alley); first floor (the "State Floor" contains the Red Room, Blue Room, Green Room, East Room, State Dining Room, and Family Dining Room); second floor (the "Family Residence" contains the master bedroom, Lincoln Bedroom, Queens' Bedroom, Yellow Oval Room, Truman Balcony), and the third floor (recreation, music, and sun rooms).
