Caroline sold the farm was a while back. This must be a 2nd time sale.

@Shepherd. Every article I read said Caroline was selling the property. Her kids are grown and no one has use for it anymore. It has been in the family for forty years.

@oznell   I , totally, agree about the property and the price!  Hugh Jacobson Newell's designs are lovely.  He has done a lot in New England as well as Washington, DC.  His rooms and layouts are considered to be very well proportioned.  If you have time, look up some of his work, I think you might like it!

How sad to not want such beautiful seclusion or for some other reason such as the one provided.  Some family members must be in need of cash flow.  Nothing wrong with that.  This is the way of generational growth, different people, different needs.

 

I hope an American will buy it and keep it as lovely as it is.

Wowza!

 

While money cannot buy happiness, it CAN buy a place like this where I could be very happy.

 

Providing of course, I had my health...that is always number 1 with me. 

 

At the time, I am healthy, so I can be ready to move in any time Cat LOL

I believe it was Hammersmith Farm that was sold years ago, that's in Newport RI.

You used to be able to tour the inside where you would see family pictures and some belongings of the Kennedy's.......gone are the good old days.
