If you’ve ever wanted to live like the Obamas, here’s a chance: the modern Martha’s Vineyard property where the former First Family vacationed is on the market—for $17.75 million.

8 Snail Road—also known as the Chilmark House—served as the 2013 “summer White House,” and features six bedrooms, five full and two partial baths across 7,000 square feet. It was designed for displaying art, but also handily showcases some pretty spectacular ocean views through floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors. Some amenities include oak and radiant-heated limestone floors, marble baths, precast concrete fireplace mantles and “top quality appliances [to] support a relaxed yet sophisticated experience for residents and guests,” according to the listing.

The property is on 9.7 acres of “seaside splendor,” with its own private beach, a heated infinity pool, half basketball court, screened in porch, and outdoor terraces. If that’s not enough, it even comes with a photo of Barack and Michelle that was taken in 1996.

The Obamas have been making real estate moves themselves since leaving the White House in January. Earlier this year, they bought the $8.1 million house they were renting in the DC’s Kalorama neighborhood, and they’ve been spotted eyeing units at 10 Gracie Square in New York’s Upper East Side. Perhaps they’ll pick up this MV estate for old time’s sake.

The property is listed for $17.75 million with Sotheby’s International Realty.
