Exorbitant House of the Week, Kennedy Edition
For a four-bedroom house in Marshall, Va., $11 million (at more than $2,000 a square foot) sounds a little steep.

Wexford, as it's known, was built by Jackie Kennedy in 1963 and served as the Kennedys' retreat, if only briefly. After John F.

Still, the Kennedy bragging rights live on in the property, as do the private pond, tennis courts, stone walls, and random eagles. Take a look around:
