Live Like Former First Lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis

Case Residence

The childhood residence of Jackie Kennedy Onassis is currently on the market. Located in lush McLean, Va., Onassis (then known as Jackie Bouvier) moved to the McLean mansion at 13, following her parents' divorce.

Known as the Merrywood Estate, the nine bedroom home is located in a prominent suburb outside Washington D.C. Built in 1919 and originally set on 46 acres, the future First Lady once walked the home’s gorgeous grounds, which roll right to the edge of the Potomac river. The estate now includes a reduced seven acres of land, but the house still stands as prominently as ever: a 23,000-square-foot, four-level, regal brick-and-limestone mansion.

Presidential columns greet you at the home’s entrance, and delicate interiors provide an authentic sense of history. A welcoming foyer, cozy library, grand parlor and master dining room all include elaborate detailing. The grounds feature a tennis court, two swimming pools (indoor and outdoor), and a separate gym with changing rooms.

The home is currently priced at $49.5 million. At press time, this is the highest priced residence in the Washington, D.C. area.

    Such a beautiful home!
    I am selling an estate here in Cold Spring Harbor New York on Long Island’s gold coast. It is called Uplands Farm Estate. It was purchased in 1933 by J.P. Morgan as a wedding gift for his daughter
    If you have any estate buyers interested in relocating to Long island, please consider this beautiful home!
    Thank you and good luck!

    You could almost visualize the Bouvier family living there!
    True timeless elegance.
