Jackie Kennedy's Childhood Home, Merrywood, Listed for $49.5M

The estate was built in 1919 by Newbold Noyes, owner and associate editor of the Washington Star newspaper. The two-storey Georgian mansion, surrounded by terraced gardens, originally boasted 46-acres of virgin land when it was purchased from the Noyes' estate in 1930, by Hugh D. Auchincloss II, a Standard Oil heir most famous for being the step-father of Jackie O.

Merrywood is one of the finest estates in Virginia. Situated in the affluent neighbourhood of McLean, just northwest of Washington D.C., the current estate has 7 sprawling acres overlooking the Potomac River.
