WASHINGTON–The house next to President Obama’s home sold for $1.4 million and my Chicago Sun-Times colleague Mark Konkol has the story here, at his blog, Konkol’s Korner. The buyer is not known. The sale closed Wednesday for the 6,000-square foot home of Bill and Jacky Grimshaw, friends of the Obama’s who lived on Greenwood near 51st since 1973–when they bought the house for $35,000.
