A residence that once served as home to a former president could be yours. According to, the historic mansion that John F. Kennedy lived in is now on the market.

At 4,659 square feet, the gorgeous three-bedroom, four-bathroom Georgetown-West Village property was originally built in 1800. For two years, Kennedy shared the home with his sister Eunice just before embarking on his presidential campaign. Along with builder Tom Glass, modernist architect Richard Foster contributed his signature design imprint throughout the renovated home, which is listed for $4.7 million.

As can be expected, the former presidential dwelling boasts an elegant style. Red brick covers the exterior, while black doors and shutters contrast beautifully against white trim; inside, ornate French wall paneling accentuates the curved grand staircase in the two-story atrium, and hardwood flooring runs throughout the home. The kitchen remains true to the original architecture while still displaying all the elements of a modern, family-oriented space, from stainless steel appliances and white cabinetry to recessed lighting, and granite countertops and cozy breakfast nook. The second level houses the light and airy family room, a window-filled space that manages to feel welcoming and dignified. Just off the family room is a wood-paneled library/office, outfitted with a built-in bookshelf and ample storage space.

The well-lit, spacious master bedroom is accentuated by recessed lighting as well. There’s also a fireplace and a sleek ensuite that features stainless steel hardware, huge windows and all-white cabinetry. The home also features the latest technology, including a Lutron lighting and a Crestron home smart system.

Additional amenities include a butler’s kitchen, an attached garage and a rooftop terrace. The home offers a riverfront view, and is located at 1400 34th St. NW. Christie-Anne Weiss is the property’s listing agent.
