"Rarely does such a splendid piece of architecture become available in Georgetown," TTR Sotheby's International Realty's Michael Rankin told Southern Living. "These are legacy homes, and the prominence of this offering adds to its desirability for buyers, especially those looking to own a piece of history."

The single-family home, built in 1805, was last sold in 1997 for $1.7 million, and was previously owned by former New York governor W. Averell Harriman and his wife Pamela Churchill Harriman when Onassis resided there with her children.
