If the United States ever had a royal family, the closest thing to it was former President John F. Kennedy and his wife Jackie. Both were beloved symbols of a new era; fashionable, intelligent, cunning and progressive. They were also wealthy, of course, and the home in Georgetown where the two love birds met just sold for $4.2 million.
According to a report by the New York Post, the classic three-bedroom home was originally built in 1800, though the entire place has been refurbished with a modern touch. It keeps its classic charms with a red brick facade, wood-paneled library and white marble bathroom. As if the history wasn't enough, it comes with panoramic views of Washington D.C.
The 35th President lived there from 1949 to 1951. He was a junior senator then, and he met Jackie during a dinner party in 1951. The pair married a couple years later, and by 1961, he was President.
President Kennedy's assisination remains one of the darkest clouds in American history, though his life and words continue to give this nation hope. To read more about the Georgetown home and see pictures of the interior, read the full story via New York Post.
