Wexford, the iconic John F. Kennedy family estate just west of Middleburg VA, is now offered for sale. The property, custom designed by President and Mrs. John F. Kennedy as a family retreat in 1963, is brought to the market for the first time in 22 years.


Originally 39 acres, the property today comprises 166 acres. The main residence is a beautiful stucco home filled with light and sited with magnificent Blue Ridge Mountain views. Wexford was the only house designed from the ground up by President and Mrs. Kennedy. The Kennedys first visit to Wexford after completion was October 25, 1963; they visited again on November 10. Mrs. Kennedy sold the property a year later.


The property was leased by President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan during the fall 1980 presidential election campaign. Reagan met with advisors at Wexford and rehearsed for his debates with President Jimmy Carter. President Reagan also spent time at Wexford during the transition period prior to his presidential inauguration.


Set amid rolling hills in the heart of Virginia Hunt Country, Wexford is surrounded by other large historic farms and estates. Located just west of Middleburg in Orange County Hunt territory, the property offers an abundance of riding trails, peaceful surroundings and dramatic views.


This one story 5,050 square foot home, rich with character, features original parquet floors, his and her dressing rooms, multiple fireplaces, a formal dining, built-in cabinets and bookcases, nine foot ceilings and alternate power generators.  The surroundings include natural stone landscaping, flagstone pool deck with an outdoor cooking area, vine covered trellises, stone patio and a tennis court.. The basement space under the house conceals equipment and utilities. This equestrian property has stables for horses that include water, electrical, storage for hay and two separate living areas.  There is also a separate three car garage with bath and second floor studio/office exists as well.  The property still contains an underground bomb shelter and dependencies used by Secret Service personnel.
