Hamptons Estate Linked to JFK's Sister Selling for $35 Million

JeanA Hamptons estate owned by a trust associated with Jean Kennedy Smith has just hit the market for $35 million. Smith, 90, is the longest surviving sibling of president John F. Kennedy. The estate is actually two separate parcels comprising of a total of 10 acres — a waterfront property asking $20 million, and a cottage with a pool asking $15 million.

"Built in 1850, the main house is 6,000 square feet and comes with nine bedrooms and six bathrooms — on 4.9 acres. The property features a dock, a pool, a tennis court and lots of patios and gardens. The cottage is a 2,850-square-foot ranch home with four bedrooms. This property also has a pool and sits on 5.27 acres."

Smith served as the U.S. ambassador to Ireland from 1993 to 1998 and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama for her work with people with disabilities.
