5. Extreme Real Estate Value
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue was the location of the largest house in the United States until after the Civil War. The White House began construction in 1792 and the first residents, President John Adams and his wife Abigail, moved into their new home in 1800. The total cost was $232,372!
Today if the White House was put up for sale, according to Zillow, it would be worth around $320,000,000! Not too surprising when you think of all the amenities the White House has to offer. There’s the movie theatre, dentist office, bowling alley, swimming pool, tennis court, and of course 16 bedrooms and 35 bathrooms. The White House is basically an entire city, capable of running itself, located under one roof. It’s super luxurious and contains every amenity you could ever want!
