The spacious mansion of the late Ted Kennedy recently hit the market.
The one-year anniversary of the Lion of the Senate’s passing is approaching this August. It was just 10 months ago that cameras were camped outside the late Congressman’s house on Tracy Place (map) just behind Embassy Row. Now, the home is selling for almost $8 million.
The senator and his wife, Victoria, bought the six-bedroom, 9,000 square-foot estate for about $3 million back in 1998. The address is not disclosed on most real estate sites, but the listing description certainly intimates that someone of Kennedy’s stature lived there:
Whether dinners for national and international dignitaries, fund-raising receptions or family gatherings, many special people have graced this elegant residence. Its stately exterior and grand rooms do not compromise its function as a family home filled with light and serenity in every room.
The home has 16 rooms, five fireplaces and a decor that brings to mind another large, white property here in the city. In fact, the whole home looks eerily like Obama’s current residence, a place that Kennedy tried to move into in an unsuccessful 1980 campaign. More photos below.
