The owner trying to sell a two-bedroom oceanfront condo in Palm Beach threw in something extra for the buyer: an antique high chair that John F. Kennedy Jr. used as a child.

Courtney Begel listed the condo, 105-N at 2660 South Ocean Boulevard, with an asking price of slightly less than $1.15 million. She paid $950,000 in April 2015 for 1,900-square-foot unit at the Beach Point Condominium.

The condo would be sold unfurnished except for the high chair, which dates to the 19th century.

Begel’s late husband bought the high chair for $85,000 at a 1996 auction of items that belonged to the estate of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The upholstered high chair has a wooden compartment that conceals a potty bowl.

The listing agent, Kevin Dickerson of Bershire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty, told the Palm Beach Daily News that the historic high chair is “a little added bonus” for whoever buys the Palm Beach condo.

The condo features marble floors, a 400-square-foot balcony and a spiral staircase from the balcony to the pool deck.

The Kennedy family owned a mansion in Palm Beach that was known as the “Winter White House” before President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort got that title. Private investment manager Jane Goldman bought the Kennedy mansion two years ago for $31 million. [Palm Beach Daily News] – Mike Seemuth
