The D.C. Mansion Where Jackie Kennedy Lived After JFK's Assassination Is for Sale
The historic Washington, D.C. mansion where Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and her children took refuge following the assassination of President John F. Kennedy has hit the market for $10 million.
The former first lady and her two young children, Caroline and John Jr., lived in the eight-bedroom, six-bathroom Georgetown home for about a year after leaving the White House.
One of the nation's most outstanding examples of Federal Period architecture, the 9,339-square-foot residence, known as the Riggs-Riley house dates, back to 1805 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The former first lady isn't the only famous figure to have called 3038 North Street NW home. In fact, when she lived there, the house was owned by former governor of New York W. Averell Harriman and his wife Pamela Churchill Harriman, whose first husband, Randolph Churchill, was the son Winston Churchill.
The property is currently listed with Michael Rankin of TTR Sotheby's International Realty.
"Rarely does such a splendid piece of architecture become available in Georgetown," Rankin told Southern Living. "These are legacy homes, and the prominence of this offering adds to its desirability for buyers, especially those looking to own a piece of history"
The charming brick house also boasts a number of features that are hard to come by in Georgetown, including a .38-acre lot with extensive gardens, a pool, and parking for more than five cars.
