This week’s “If I Had $1.5 Million” listing is a special one: It is the first home that John F. Kennedy lived in when he moved to DC. Kennedy bought the three-bedroom Georgetown home in 1946 when he moved to DC as a Massachusetts congressman (and bachelor). (He went on to live in four other houses in the city before becoming president.)

Who knows, you could have quite the political career if you purchase this property. More details and photos below.
