Six Presidential Properties for Sale
As President Obama finishes up his second term and makes way for Donald Trump, whose inauguration is on Friday, we’re taking a look at six homes for sale around the U.S. with links to past, present and future presidents, as well as their close families. A modest ranch near Middleburg, Virginia, which John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline, built in the early 1960s is decidedly less known than the glitzy Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port. The former first lady designed it herself as a weekend retreat away from the White House, but sadly the family only spent three weekends there before JFK was assassinated in 1963. The property was sold a few months later. The four-bedroom property, which she named Wexford after the Irish county where her husband’s ancestors lived, is currently back on the market for $5.95 million. This is down from $7.95 million in September 2015 and $10.99 million when it first was put up for sale in 2013.
