IMPROVED VALUE! IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK. In Belle Haven this is the long time home of Jacqueline Kennedy and JFK’s personal private secretary, Mrs. Mary Barelli Gallagher (who passed away in 2022). Mrs. Kennedy and her children Caroline and John John spent endless hours here- quite often on Wednesdays to enjoy normalcy away from the White House. The house is loaded with love and is a tribute to a gracious lifestyle. The mechanics of the house and roof are in good shape; we believe the structure to be sound. Updating this historical gem could be a labor of love. Enjoy the photos which show the Kennedy children, Jackie Kennedy, secret service, Tom Kitten and the Gallaghers spending playful time together at the house. Mary Gallagher's brief story of her time with the Kennedy family can be found in the documents section of this listing. She recorded her time with the Kennedys in her best selling book My Life with Jacqueline Kennedy in which she chronicles the happy times with the Kennedy family and that fateful day in November, 1963. This house has been in the family for 69 years, purchased in 1954 for $21,000. It is surprisingly large with a 1970 addition; and features four bedrooms on upper level and large living spaces on the main level. The wood floors have been covered for years and were just recently restored. The systems are in good shape, roof replaced in 2002 and 2016; UNICO A/C added to the house in 2004; heat replaced in 2017. Here is a once in a lifetime opportunity to personalize this historic gem. This stellar location is 1 mile to Old Town Alexandria, close to 495, the Metro and 12 min to Ft Belvoir’s back gate! Check out the photos and floor plans!
