JFK’s Former Georgetown Home Is Officially Off The Market
Once home to John F. Kennedy, this stately Georgetown residence has officially sold for $4.2 million, which is $475,000 lower than the original asking price. Kennedy’s days in the oval office were ahead of him when he moved into the Washington D.C. home with his sister Eunice in 1949. Settling in at the beginning of his career in the House of Representatives for Massachusetts’ 11th Congressional District, this house served him well.
Built in 1800, this three-bedroom, Federal-style brick home has lots to love behind its newly refurbished walls. Undergoing a renovation by renowned architect Richard Foster and distinguished builder Tom Glass, it received a much-needed 21st-century revamp. With state-of-the-art appliances and mechanical systems including Lutron and Crestron, it’s all set for modern living.
For a history buff or aspiring politician, Georgetown’s cobblestone streets are simply the yellow brick road to one of the most historic cities in America. Moments away from the political hustle, the property has a prime location. The home’s stunning rooftop viewing terrace gives picturesque views of the city’s beautiful landscape. In the distance, one can even see the Washington Monument.
Besides other presidents, few can say they have lived where the late President John F. Kennedy once did. Now, the new owner can proudly announce it.
Christie-Anne Weiss and Christopher Ritzert of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty held the listing while Michael Rankin of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty achieved the sale.
