In December of 1953 John F. Kennedy and Jackie Bouvier Kennedy signed their first lease as a newly married couple here, at 3321 Dent Place NW. JFK, still a junior senator at the time, and Jackie enjoyed hosting formal dinner parties and relaxing in the backyard garden - documented in the photo-illustrated chronicle Camelot at Dawn.
The four level property has been with the same family since it was built in 1942. This classic Georgetown home retains numerous period details including wide-board Canadian oak floors, a wood burning fireplace, expansive dining room with real oak molding and sun-filled living room with a wall of windows overlooking the garden. Outside, the English garden style backyard, complete with profusions of purple bearded iris and white peonies, leads down an all-brick walkway to a fully-detached garage. 3321 Dent Place NW is located in Georgetown's West Village, just a short walk from Volta Park, Wisconsin Avenue, M Street, and countless shopping and dining venues.
