Brooklyn brownstone that Barack Obama once rented hits the market for $4.3 million

Before Michelle came into the picture, President Barack Obama lived with his then-girlfriend, Genevieve Cook, in the top-floor apartment in a Brooklyn brownstone after graduating from Columbia University.

Decades later, the exes' Park Slope lovenest, converted into a single-family home, has hit the market for $4.295 million.

The classic, wood-panelled three-story townhouse in the residential neighborhood was commissioned in 1903 and boasts five bedrooms and four fireplaces. A stunning double parlor, parquet floors, wood molding and an original claw-foot tub add to the home's period charm. The beautiful home also offers outdoor perks like a garden and outdoor terrace.

Peek inside the classic brownstone:

Back in the mid-1980s, Obama and Cook purportedly got a sweet deal for their apartment, according to "Barack Obama: The Story" by David Maraniss. In the book, Maraniss notes that Cook's coworker owned the building.

Obama only lived in the apartment for a few short years while he was working at Business International Corporation and the New York Public Interest Research Group in NYC before moving back home to Chicago and later attending Harvard Law.

Obama didn't meet his future wife, Michelle, until 1989, when he secured a summer associate position at Sidley & Austin, a corporate law firm in Chicago and the firm assigned her as his mentor.
