The Washington, DC, mansion where Jackie Kennedy retreated with her two young children after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963 has found a buyer and is under contract for $6.5 million, according to the Washington Post.
Built in the 1790s and known as the Newton D. Baker House, the grand estate in the Georgetown section of the city hit the market last spring with a $10 million asking price. The price on the storied Colonial at 3017 N Street NW was dropped in October to $9 million, then $6.5 million in January.
Jackie Kennedy renovated the six-bedroom home and lived in it for about a year before decamping to New York City. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
According to the Post, the buyer of the home is David Hudgens, founder and CEO of Accu-Crete concrete company.
“He has a real interest in historic preservation, so he decided to take the plunge,” listing agent Jamie Peva told the Post.
Hudgens is familiar with the neighborhood. Property records show he owns a couple of adjoining properties on N Street NW. With his latest acquisition, he’s well on his way to building the grandest Georgetown compound the U.S. capital’s ever seen.
