Martha's Vineyard is an affluent vacation destination where the Obama family has previously spent summer vacations. Rumors have swirled about the family possibly buying a home there since the former president left office.

The 7-bedroom home spans almost 7,000 square feet and sits on 29 waterfront acres overlooking Edgartown Great Pond, according to the listing. The asking price was $14.85 million.
