Kennedy's Kalorama Home

The late Sen.Ted Kennedy's grand home in the Kalorama area of Washington. DC has recently sold for $6.5 million to the Republic of Gabon.  The structure is classic Greek Revival and sits on a well groomed tree line street. I would have loved to tour this property but with the listing price of $8 million I didn't quite meet the requirement to "show financial ability" to get a look. Can't you imagine the political discussions that must have taken place in the senator's library? With more than 8,900 square feet, six bedrooms, an indoor pool, two balconies, five fireplaces and beautiful gardens this house is nothing short of elegant...a grand house for entertaining and large family gatherings. I understand the Republic of Gabon will use it for it's official ambassador's residence.
