For $US65 million, you can vacation like a first lady.
The Martha’s Vineyard estate that first lady Jacqueline (Jackie) Kennedy Onassis used as a summer home was put on the market for $US65 million in June 2019 by her daughter Caroline Kennedy. So far, there has been no change to the price.
In 1981, architect Hugh Newell Jacobson finished designing both the main house and the guest house. In 2000, Caroline Kennedy renovated and expanded the main house with the help of Deborah Berke, dean of the Yale School of Architecture.
Now, the 340-acre estate includes a 6,456-square-foot main house, guest house, hunting cabin, barn, boathouse, storage building, and two garages.
Its amenities include over a mile of private beachfront, a pool, tennis court, exercise studio, vegetable garden, and blueberry patch.
Red Gate Farm is being marketed globally by Christie’s International Real Estate, which is represented locally by Tom LeClair and Gery Conover, agents of LandVest, the exclusive Affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate on Martha’s Vineyard.

Martha’s Vineyard has been known to attract big-name vacationers such as Barack Obama, the Clintons, and Amy Schumer. It’s about two hours away from Cape Cod by car (the route includes a ferry ride).
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis purchased the estate for around $US1 million in the late 1970s.
At the time of purchase, the only building on the property was the hunting cabin.

The main house and guest house were designed in 1981 by the famous architect Hugh Newell Jacobson. The guest house adds another four bedrooms and three bathrooms to the estate.
