Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images(MCLEAN, Va.) — Want to live presidential? Well, you could.

Former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’ childhood home in McLean, Virginia, is on the market for $49.5 million.

Called the Merrywood Estate, the home was originally built in 1919 right on the edge of the Potomac River. It currently sits on 7 acres with the actual mansion totaling 23,000 square feet, according to Sotheby’s International Realty.

The four-level, Georgian-style structure features nine bedrooms and 13 bathrooms.

The first level of the home was used by the Kennedys to entertain their famous friends. It features a formal foyer, along with grand public rooms and a formal dining room.

The second level of the Merrywood Estate is considered the private quarters, featuring a large master suite with double dressing rooms, a workout room and a private study. There are also four other bedrooms on that level.

The home also boasts an elevator, temperature-controlled wine room, tennis court, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, along with garden rooms complete with a terrace to take in the view of the river.

Although the estate is now owned by AOL co-founder Steve Case, it can be yours very soon.
