The home that Jackie Kennedy and her two children lived in following the assassination of John F. Kennedy is now on the market, for $10 million.
Located in the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C., this Federal-style single family home was built in 1805, and it last sold for $1.7 million in 1997. It boasts eight bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms across 9,339 square feet, and it sits on a .38 acre lot.
Some amenities of the home include an in-ground pool, parking space for at least five cars, numerous terraces, 12 foot-high ceilings, and countless original details, like crown molding and a bevy of fireplaces throughout.
After the Kennedys lived here, politician and businessman W. Averell Harriman and his wife, Pamela Churchill Harriman, called this place home. During this time, this historic dwelling underwent an extensive renovation by renowned architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, who worked with Mrs. Harriman to improve upon existing elements of the home’s design.
Beyond the fascinating history of this abode, its decor in and of itself is certainly worth admiring. There’s the Zuber wallpaper in the dining room, antique furniture throughout, Federal convex mirrors, and vibrant wall colors galore.
