After the tragic assassination of her husband, President John F. Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy, and her children sought solace in a grand mansion in Georgetown known as “The Baker House.” It was where their life together had begun, and it seemed fitting to return there during her mourning period.
However, her stay was cut short due to the unwavering attention she received from the public and the paparazzi.
In just a year, her presence had turned the Georgetown Street, where she lived into a tourist and paparazzi hub, and she was forced to retreat to her previous home on 1040 Fifth Avenue, New York.

Now, the beautiful 18th-century mansion, which holds a special place in the hearts of many as a piece of American history, is back on the market. The Federal-style house, built in 1794 and owned by several prominent figures, including Jackie’s stepfather, Hugh Auchincloss, is located at 3017 N St. NW, in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Washington D.C.
Outside the Georgetown Property
The property’s exterior boasts a red-brick facade complemented by black shutters and an iron fence, providing privacy and seclusion as it sits back from the street. The 16,300 sq. ft lot offers ample space to roam and relax.
Inside Jacqueline Kennedy’s Last Known Address
Inside, the ornate architectural details are preserved, paying homage to its previous occupants. The entryway boasts stunning black and white checkered marble floors and a beautiful chandelier. The living room features the original wood-burning fireplace and beautiful hardwood floors, offering a warm and inviting space. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, elegant dining room with a large bay window, and an executive home office add a touch of luxury.
Sleeping and Cleaning Up
The property features five bedrooms: a beautiful primary bedroom suite with a fireplace, a stunning primary bathroom, and a private balcony with awe-inspiring garden views. The primary bathroom is elegantly designed with marble floors, a soaking tub, and a separate shower.
The Unique Plus the Extras
Jackie’s home also includes a library perfect for cozying up with a good book, beautiful French doors leading out to a Juliet balcony with stunning views of the neighborhood, and a lower level with a family room and wet bar, perfect for entertaining guests.
Important Points to Note
It is important to note that Jackie’s mansion is one of three federal-style properties combined to create the 16,300 sq. ft mansion currently listed under Jonathan Taylor of Sotheby’s International Realty.
The other two properties belonged to equally famous names, including Thomas Beall, a former Georgetown Mayor, and Yolande Fox, the former Miss America. The three properties were purchased and combined by an affluent businessman and are currently connected via an underground parking lot and passageways.
Similar to Jacqueline’s Federal-style mansion, the other two properties also boast quality finishings such as oak herringbone flooring, Italian-style entertainment rooms, and gourmet kitchens.
Today, Jackie Kennedy’s Georgetown home is on the market for $26.5 million, making it one of the most expensive listings in Georgetown and Washington D.C. as a whole. The property has been extensively renovated and restored over the years, ensuring it retains its historic charm while offering modern amenities for prospective buyers. Despite its high price tag, the property will surely attract interest from those who appreciate its unique history and luxurious features.
