Senator Ted Kennedy’s Home On Market—-For $22 Million


Gorgeous home.

But out of my price range.

A sprawling Georgetown estate that was once home to Sen. Ted Kennedy is coming on the market for $22 million.

Mr. Kennedy and his first wife, Joan Kennedy, rented the property, which is located in the East Village area of Georgetown, some time after his election to the Senate in the 1960s, according to the Historical Society of Washington, D.C., and reports from the time. The home was formerly part of the neighboring Evermay Estate, a historic Georgetown property which sold for $22 million in 2011 to biotech executives Sachiko Kuno and Ryuji Ueno.

The current owner of Mr. Kennedy’s onetime home is Cathy Brentzel, a former securities attorney, who bought the home with her family in 2008 for $11.8 million, property records show. Ms. Brentzel said she is selling the property, which has been shopped off-market several times in the last few years, to be closer to her 15-year-old daughter, who is attending boarding school in Switzerland.

The original Edwardian-style home dates back to 1887, but an addition was added in the 1950s, bringing the home to around 10,000 square feet. More recently, a previous owner renovated the home to better blend the older portion with the addition. The interior of the home was demolished and taken down to the studs, while new structural support, plumbing and electric wiring was installed.
