Merrywood was the northern Virginia estate of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy's stepfather, Hugh D. Auchincloss, who was truly like a second father to her and her sister Lee. From Decor to Adore:
This brick and limestone Georgian gem was originally built in 1919. The estate is located just northwest of Washington D.C. and just a few miles away from George Washington’s “Mount Vernon”. The home is 23,000 square feet and includes 9 bedrooms, 11 full bathrooms and both an indoor and outdoor pool. The original estate, with it’s 46 acres, was purchased in the mid 1930’s by Hugh D. Auchincloss II, heir of Standard Oil, and the step-father of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. (Read more.)
I am so enjoying J. Randy Taraborrelli's book Jackie, Janet and Lee.
