The house in which US Vice President Kamala Harris will soon be staying has been announced.
Harris made history on Wednesday, January 20, when she was sworn in as vice president, becoming the first woman and the first Black and South Asian woman to hold office.
Harris, 56 years old, has been living on the Naval Observatory grounds in Northwest Washington, D.C., in a house owned by her predecessors for more than four decades.
She would be the eighth vice president to live in the Queen Anne-style residence, which became the official home of the serving vice president in 1974, according to the White House official website.
The three-story residence, built in 1894, is constructed of brick and timber, with green shutters and a partially enclosed porch. The home, which sits on 72 acres, also includes a redesigned living room, a sitting room, a garden room, two lounges, a reception hall, a kitchen and a dining space.
The interior of the building contains a living room, a waiting room, a garden room, two lounges, a reception area, a pantry and a dining room.
It was home to Vice Presidents Bush, Quayle, Gore, Cheney, Biden and Pence, and their families. (Pence walked out of the building before attending the opening ceremony on Wednesday.)
