 Jackie Kennedy's 1794-year-old mansion up for sale

One of Jackie Kennedy's former homes has officially hit the market.

The Washington, D.C. mansion is one of the properties where the former first lady stayed after the 1963 murder of her husband, President John F. Kennedy. The Georgetown home was recently listed for $26.5 million by Sotheby s International Realty.

They say history repeats itself. That is the case with the remarkable 1794 Georgetown estate known as Newton Baker Jackie Kennedy House at 3017, 3009, 3003 N Street, NW in Washington D.C. Jonathan Taylor of TTR Sotheby s International Realty told FOX Business.

He added that the opportunity is generational and must be experienced to be appreciated.

The property is on the National Register of Historic Places. It has been renovated over the years to highlight a more modern touch since Kennedy lived in it. The home, together with two other mansions, now boasts 13 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms and five half baths, all of which are more than 16,000 square feet.

The listing states that all three homes have been meticulously reinvented with obsessive attention to detail and the finest materials, while still retaining their character-defining features and sense of place and history characteristic of Georgetown. The 3003 -- 3017 N St NW is unmatched in history, design and execution, and is one of Georgetown's most storied estates. The brick and concrete mansion built in 1794 highlights a reception hall that leads to a second floor with a primary suite, along with a spa bathroom. The room has a private balcony with a view of the lush back gardens.

The home also has oak herringbone flooring and elegant moldings throughout. There is a three-car garage parking area, a grand Italianate entertaining room on the main floor, a cozy library and original fireplace surrounds. The modern renovation aims to embrace the highest quality design, fixtures and finishes while retaining its historic elegance. Other notable figures have owned the property, including Georgetown Mayor Thomas Beall, Secretary of War Newton D. Baker and former Miss America Yolande Fox.

In the last decade, several homes associated with the mother of two have been up for sale. Kennedy's childhood home, a summer estate in East Hampton New York, went up for sale in 2020 for $7.5 million. In 2017, a Georgian-style mansion along the Potomac River in Virginia hit the market. It was listed for $49.5 million at the time.

Kennedy passed away at the age of 64 in 1994.
