Ketanji Brown Jackson, the trailblazing woman and former public defender who recently became the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court, is saying goodbye to her Colonial-style residence in Washington, DC. According to Architectural Digest, the 2005-built home, listed for $2.5 million, boasts six bedrooms and five full bathrooms and is conveniently located just a short drive from downtown DC. Jackson and her husband, a gastrointestinal surgeon and Georgetown professor, purchased the property in 2013 for $1.87 million, as per public records.

Nestled on a tree-lined street alongside other heritage homes, the residence greets visitors with stone steps leading to a porch bordered by a white fence, the publication states, adding that a red front door opens to a foyer adorned with a double-height ceiling and a graceful curved staircase. The expansive main floor includes a formal living room, a den, and a library, all showcasing crown molding and elegant white window trimming.

The kitchen boasts a carved wood center island, marble countertops, and a double oven. Accessible from the dining area, the backyard features a deck equipped with an outdoor kitchen and a fenced-in yard.

The second floor houses four spacious bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom. On the top floor, a fifth bedroom, a fourth full ensuite bath, and a generously-sized, sunlit bonus space await. The basement is home to a fitness studio, a crafts area, and the sixth bedroom, which also includes its own ensuite bathroom.

Jackson’s residence enjoys a coveted location within walking distance of Fort Reno Park, a public pool, two metro stations, numerous dining options, and a variety of shopping opportunities.
