The “oasis in Park Slope” has been rented out. Mayor Bill de Blasio and his wife Chirlane McCray have found someone to live in their Park Slope home while they’re in Gracie Mansion.

According to the Wall Street Journal, New York’s First Couple rented out their house to the first people who looked at it. The rent for the home, which was on the market for 12 days, is $4,975 a month.

The house hit the market earlier this month. The three-bedroom property — with the option to convert to four bedrooms — also includes big custom closets, a marble mantle and high ceilings on the parlor floor.

The new tenants, who are expected to move in next month, signed a one-year lease. They already live in the neighborhood, according to the newspaper, but they’re looking for more space and a backyard.
