A historical home in Washington, D.C. hit the market for $4.7 million earlier last week. While historical homes have no shortage in the city where presidents reside, this house has a unique history that you can’t find in many properties. Formerly owned by President John F. Kennedy, the all-brick estate has distinguished craftsmanship in every room with designs curated by renowned architect Richard Foster, who also built the famous theater used by the American Ballet.

 
Upon entry of the eye-catching abode, a grand staircase with French wall paneling sets the stage for the property’s grandiosity. A modern kitchen with accents of the original architecture is one of the many lavish rooms in the home. White cabinetry, modern stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops make this kitchen feel like the perfect space for any family meal. There’s also plenty of space to create a breakfast nook that will turn the kitchen from just a place to cook, to a place to hang out.

The second floor features a relaxed living space with an open floor plan and a private office with wood-paneled walls, and plenty of storage space. Large windows allow for natural light to flow from room to room making the open space feel bright and airy.
