Ted Kennedy's D.C. Mansion Up for Sale

With seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, an exercise room customized by Arnold Schwarzenegger, and a 10-year run as the stomping grounds of political royalty, who wouldn't want the beautiful, White House-esque former digs of the late Ted Kennedy? Understandably, not Vicki Kennedy, the widow of the late senator, who has decided to sell their Washington, D.C., home to buy a smaller residence in Washington. The couple bought the 8,900-square-foot home in 1998 for $2.8 million. "What Teddy and I wanted was a welcoming house. We wanted to be able to entertain, but we also wanted a family home," Vicki told Architectural Digest in 1999. The current price for the home, which can be viewed by special appointment, is more than $6 million.
