JFK and Jackie Kennedy’s Virginia Estate Just Sold for $2.85 Million
Take a look inside the home.
Everyone was enamored with the Kennedys' design taste. The White House underwent a complete restoration led by Jacqueline Kennedy during her husband's term in office. Jackie Kennedy hired famed decorator Sister Parish to help with the project. The restoration also received media attention, and the first lady even gave a tour of the White House on CBS, with more than 80 million people watching.
And now another piece of Kennedy design history has a new owner. Wexford, the Middleburg, Virginia, estate built by Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy, was recently sold for $2.85 million. The name comes from the county in Ireland from where the Kennedy ancestors hailed. The Kennedys built the home in 1963 as a retreat for their family, and moved in just a few weeks before President Kennedy's assassination, according to Fauquier Now.
The property is located on over 166 acres and is about an hour from Washington, D.C. The one-story home has five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, a kitchen, library, study, and children's room. Outside there are gardens, stone terraces, a tennis court, stables, and a pool.
The Kennedys weren't the only presidential family to stay on the estate. President Ronald Reagan and first lady Nancy Reagan rented the property during the transitional period before they moved into the White House.
