Jackie Kennedy’s Former DC Home Is About to Go to Auction

Former First Lady Jacqueline (AKA Jackie) Kennedy’s previous home is officially going to auction later this month. It’s an opulent property that’s quite fitting for Jackie so it’s no surprise why she fell in love with the house.


Located in the upscale neighbourhood of Georgetown in Washington, DC, Jackie purchased the 18th-century residence after the tragic assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy. She lived there for only a year with her children as it became a public hotspot, especially from the paparazzi. Since her departure, the home has been tastefully renovated with the highest quality finishes while still retaining its original charm. The former Kennedy residence is now combined with two other homes, creating a massive 16,300-square-foot compound that boasts 13 bedrooms, 13 full baths and five half baths.

Let’s take a peek inside the historical mansion, shall we?

The gorgeous entryway boasts tons of natural light that bounces off the white walls adorned with beautiful crown moulding and panelling. There is oak flooring throughout and despite the home’s remodelling, the grand entryway is all original.

Grand Backyard

Outside, the backyard is large enough for entertaining in the spring, summer and fall months. The stone patio is perfect for BBQs, brunches or relaxing with a coffee in hand.

Jackie’s former estate hit the market last year for $26.5 million before dropping to its current price of $19.5 million. On October 24th, the unique property will enter a no-reserve auction which means it will sell to the highest bidder regardless of price. Would you bid on this remarkable historic home?
