Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’s 340-acre Martha Vineyard’s compound is now on the market for $65 million.

Should the secluded beachfront property sell for its ask, the deal would shatter the island’s current residential record of $32.5 million, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Onassis’s daughter, Caroline Kennedy, told the Journal that her three children are now adults, leading her to sell the compound.
LandVest’s Thomas E. LeClair and Gerret C. Conover have the listing.

The estate, which was refurbished by Kennedy and her husband Edwin Schlossberg, comes with a main 6,456-square-foot, five-bedroom home and a guesthouse with four more bedrooms. Most of the rooms have ocean views.

The compound also comes with a tennis court, pool, freshwater ponds and more than a mile of private beach.

Onassis had married shipping mogul Aristotle Onassis five years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, whose summer White House was located not too far away, in Hyannis on Cape Cod.

But for Onassis, Martha’s Vineyard felt more private, according to the Journal. The first lady bought her property, dubbed Red Gate Farm, in the 1970s for $1 million.

“She loved exploring the Cape, sailing Nantucket Sound with my father, and being part of all the family activities in Hyannis Port,” Caroline Kennedy told the publication. “But when my brother and I were grown, she wanted a place of her own.”
