WASHINGTON — The Georgetown home where President John F. Kennedy met his wife Jackie Bouvier in 1951 is hitting the market.

If you’re looking for a new place to live and want to own a small piece of Camelot, the house can be yours for $1.7 million.

The house, which originally dates back to 1895, was rented out to Charles and Martha Bartlett in the 1950s. In May 1951, they threw a dinner party to introduce then-Congressman Kennedy to Bouvier.

The pair bonded over cocktails, chicken casserole and a game of charades, and two years later they got married in Rhode Island.

TTR Sotheby’s agent Michael Brennan said he has already received multiple inquires about the house and the ideal buyer would view the home’s history as “value added.”
