John F. Kennedy’s Former Washington, DC Home Hits the Market

A pristine Washington, DC property that was once home to John F. Kennedy just hit the market. No, it’s not the White House, though history-lovers can dream. Instead, it is a circa-1800 Federal-style abode in the prestigious Georgetown area of the capital city.

Perhaps what makes it so special is that it marks a pre-presidential time in history for JFK when he was a young congressman and shared the home with his sister Eunice. Priced at $4.675 million, the distinguished structure might be a residence of good luck for house hunting politicians.

With a classic brick façade and charming spaces that tell a story, its no wonder Kennedy settled in here from 1949 to 1951. As well as offering master craftsmanship from centuries ago, the home has been meticulously renovated by architect Richard Foster and builder Tom Glass to last the test of time. The latest technologies, including Lutron and Crestron systems, flawlessly bring the historic abode into the 21st-century.

Take in the 4,659-square-feet of elegant and traditional interiors. They exude sophistication and legacy with ample moldings, a grand staircase, and a wood-paneled library where John F. Kennedy may have spent time reading. In total, there are three bedrooms, two full baths, and two half baths as well as a lovely main level terrace and a roof deck that overlooks the neighborhood’s quaint cobblestone streets.

This decidedly presidential pad is listed with Christie-Anne Weiss of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty.
