Real Estate: Jackie Kennedy Georgetown Estate Up for Auction 

Jackie Kennedy’s former N Street estate in Georgetown is up for auction. The 18th-century home, located at 3017 N St. NW, had its price reduced to $22.5 million in May, then to $19.5 million in July.  

Through Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions, bidding on the home is set to begin Tuesday, October 10. Starting bids are expected to be between $5 and $11 million. 

The Federal-style residential compound stretches across three homes (3017, 3009, 3003 N St. NW) and form a 13-bedroom, 13 full bathroom, 5 half-bath, 16,000-square-foot estate. Previous owners include not only the former Mrs. Kennedy, but the second mayor of Georgetown Thomas Beall, former U.S. Secretary of War Newton Baker, and former Miss America Yolande Fox. 

The Newton Baker House is available daily 1–4 PM for qualified showings by appointment, in person or virtually. Those interested are welcome to call Jonathan Taylor at 202-276-3344.

The home which was built in 1794, only housed the Kennedy family for a year. Jackie made the decision to move to New York City after visiting and enjoying the fact that no one approached her there — she enjoyed the sense of anonymity. 

Noteworthy designs in the home include a grand reception hall with a fireplace (with its original surrounds), a primary suite with parquet flooring, and lush rear gardens. There’s also a three-car garage, which is a rare find in Georgetown!  

“This estate is an iconic piece of Georgetown, with historical architecture and a number of notable past residents including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis,” said Jonathan Taylor of TTR Sotheby’s International Realty, who is working on selling the home.  

“Properties like this only become available once in a generation, and we’re thrilled to be working with Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions to write this historic estate’s next chapter,” he added.

No matter what happens with this historic home, its rich history is enshrined and will always include Jacqueline Kennedy’s legacy.
