The White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue features 16 bedrooms, 35 bathrooms and 55,000 square feet of space.

Only presidents and their families can live at the White House, but what if the iconic home were put on the market?

The White House features 16 bedrooms, 35 bathrooms and 55,000 square feet of space, not to mention beautifully manicured lawns, a bowling alley and even a bunker.

All those amenities would cost you, though. According to real estate website Zillow.com, the iconic presidential home would likely sell for just shy of $320 million. With a standard 30-year mortgage on the 221-year-old home, that's roughly $1.2 million a month.

How does that compare to other properties in the hot D.C. market? According to Zillow, the next most expensive house in the city only barely exceeds the $25 million mark.
