One of Jackie Kennedy’s former homes has officially hit the market.
The Washington, DC mansion is one of the properties where the former first lady stayed after the assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy in 1963. The Georgetown residence was recently listed for $26.5 million by Sotheby’s International Realty .
“They say history often repeats itself. Such is the case with the remarkable circa-1794 Georgetown property known as the Newton Baker / Jackie Kennedy House at 3017, 3009, 3003 N Street, NW in Washington DC,” Jonathan Taylor of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty told FOX Business.

“This opportunity is generational and must be experienced to be appreciated,” he added.
The property has been recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. Despite its classic charm, it has been renovated over the years to highlight a more modern touch since Kennedy lived in it. The home, combined with two other mansions, now boasts 13 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and five half baths, all spanning more than 16,000 square feet.
“All three homes have been painstakingly reinvented with obsessive attention to detail and the finest materials, while still retaining their character-defining features and sense of place and history that is characteristic of Georgetown,” the ad says. “The result of the timeless details and high quality craftsmanship is a true masterpiece. Unsurpassed in history, design and execution, 3003-3017 N St NW is a home for the most discerning buyer and is undoubtedly one of Georgetown’s most storied properties.”
The brick and concrete mansion, built in 1794, highlights a reception hall leading up to a second floor with a master suite, along with a spa bath. The room also has a private balcony overlooking the lush backyard.

The home also has oak herringbone flooring and elegant moldings throughout. There is three-car garage parking, a large Italian entertaining room on the ground floor, a cozy library and original fireplace surrounds. The modern renovation aims to “embrace” the highest quality design, fixtures and finishes while “preserving its historic elegance.”
Other notables have owned the property, including Georgetown Mayor Thomas Beall, Secretary of War Newton D. Baker, and former Miss America Yolande Fox.
Several homes associated with the mother of two have come up for sale in the past decade. Kennedy’s childhood home, a summer estate in East Hampton New York, was listed for sale in 2020 for $7.5 million. In 2017, another home from her childhood, a Georgian-style mansion located along the Potomac River in Virginia, hit the market. It was listed for a staggering $49.5 million at the time.
