It only took two price chops to close the sale

In June 2016, Jackie Kennedy’s Georgetown mansion privately landed on the market for $10 million. After languishing for a few months, it was eventually publicly listed for $8,995,000 before finally experiencing one last price chop this past January, dropping it down to $6.5 million. This final price chop seems to have done the trick as UrbanTurf reported that the residence has finally found a buyer, whose identity is still unknown.

The listing was constructed in c. 1794 with a red brick facade, window shutters, and decorative columns. With its large entertaining spaces, views of the Potomac River, and fenced-in rear patio, one Curbed reader, named lanatik, described the home as “one of the most timeless and elegant places on Curbed.”

The former First Lady only lived in the Georgetown mansion for one year before moving to New York. Later owners included New Republic publisher Michael Straight and American singer and beauty pageant titleholder Yolande Betbeze Fox.
