After only a couple months on the market, the Georgetown home where John F. Kennedy met his wife, Jackie, has sold for $1,725,000. The identity of the potential buyer has not been revealed.

According to Observer, the two met in May 1951 at a dinner party organized by the late Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Charles L. Bartlett and his wife, Martha. The Kennedys eventually married in September 1953.

Spanning nearly 2,000 square feet, this residence was constructed in 1895 and was later combined with an adjacent house in 1956. Still, there are period details that remain inside, such as the restored hardwood floors. There is a separate dining room beside the kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances and tile flooring. The property, asking $1,725,000, has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.

The home that Jackie briefly lived in after JFK’s assassination is in the same neighborhood, last sold in May 2017 for $6.5 million.
