The Presidents of America were either born into affluent families or found it somewhere along their ascension to the office. With that sort of wealth, Presidents have some of the extravagant and breathtaking real estate and cars. Some of the presidents bought houses and cars while in office while others have inherited their properties from there wealthy family.
Before becoming the president of America, our former presidents have their lives revolve around their family. They have their own ancestral houses and personal cars.

After they finish their presidential term, they spent most of their lives with their loved ones and enjoyed life with their cars and estate properties. Although some presidents died while serving the country, their memorabilia are the living truth of their legend. Most of the mansions and ranches of the former presidents were designated as National Historic Landmark, while some of their cars were auctioned for charitable purposes and shown in a museum.

George Washington’s Historic Home – Mount Vernon
George Washington served as the first ever US president from 1789-1797. After his term, he only lived two years in his family home in Virginia. Mount Vernon, his beloved home on the banks of the Potomac River in Fairfax County, Virginia was in wrecks by mismanagement and Washington spent his remaining days trying to restore the mansion to its former glory.
The estate is an 11,028 square foot space with twenty-one rooms. This house along with the plantation is a reflection of how affluent George Washington was. Initially, Washington’s father Augustine built the mansion, and then, later on, George expanded the house twice. The mansion remained George’s house for the next two years of his life until his demise. When Washington died, he was buried in the family tomb at Mount Vernon. Around this time, the plantation was also the home of United State’s largest whiskey distillery. Entertainingly, its cellar became a location for the “National Treasure: Book of Secrets” movie.
