The former residence of President John F. Kennedy was just listed for sale in Washington D.C., fresh from a Richard Foster-led restoration. Set in the historic neighborhood of Georgetown, the Federal-style property was originally built in the 1800s, and served as JFK's home from 1949 to 1951 while he was a United States senator.
Foster, along with builder Tom Glass, undertook a complete renovation of the three-bedroom, two-bath residence. The duo reimagined the 4,659-square-foot interior for modern-day living without losing many of the original details and historic aesthetic.
Boasting immaculate original features—such as the curved banister staircase and a wood-clad library—the four-story home also includes space for intimate gatherings, including a rooftop terrace.
As part of the renovation, the kitchen was treated to all new appliances and custom cabinets. Lutron and Crestron mechanical systems were also installed throughout the home, providing new smart-home capabilities.
