(Really) Great Spaces: Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’s Martha’s Vineyard Estate

Red Gate Farm
by Zoe Eisenberg

Red Gate Farm, the formal name of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis's Martha's Vineyard estate, recently hit the market for $65 million. Located in Aquinnah, Mass., the estate sits on 340 acres at the edge of Squibnocket Pond, and includes over a mile of Atlantic Ocean beachfront access. 
Kennedy Onassis purchased Red Gate Farm in 1979, when the acres of land—operating as a sheep farm—housed nothing more than a small cabin on its grounds.
The estate was built in 1981 and renovated in 2000, and has been treasured by the Kennedy Onassis family for over 41 years. Now, Jacqueline's daughter, Caroline Kennedy, seeks the next steward for this ecological haven.
The property includes a 6,456-square-foot, cedar-shingled main residence with five bedrooms and two large decks facing the beach's sandy dunes, as well as a two-story, four-bedroom guest house.
Outside, features include two freshwater ponds, a vegetable garden, blueberry patch, an outdoor pool, tennis court and a fairy treehouse built for the Kennedy Onassis grandchildren. The original cabin still remains on the property. Other structures include a three-bedroom caretaker's house, a barn, two garages (one with a two-bedroom apartment), a temperature-controlled storage building and a boathouse.
