The owner of the former Kennedy compound in Palm Beach next month will auction furniture and other items there, including walnut beds and a massage table that John F. Kennedy and his family used.

Leslie Hindman Auctioneers will conduct the auction January 23 at the firm’s office in West Palm Beach at 1608 South Dixie Highway.

The firm said 153 items from the former “Winter White House” will be auctioned and will be available for preview starting January 15.

About 300 people attended a similar auction of furnishings from the Lilly Pulitzer estate in Palm Beach, auctioneer Leslie Hindman told the Sun-Sentinel.

The 153 items at the former Kennedy compound to be auctioned include a Louis XV mahogany table and furniture designed by architect Addison Mizner.

Mizner designed the former Kennedy compound at 1095 North Ocean Boulevard in the 1920s. Joseph P. Kennedy Sr. bought the 11-bedroom mansion in 1933 for $120,000.

John K. Castle bought the residence in 1995 along with most of the furnishings.

In May, TGS Florida LLC, managed by Jane Goldman, bought the property from Castle for $31 million. [Sun-Sentinel] — Mike Seemuth
