The home of late Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy is on sale for an eye-watering $22 million.

The Washington home that Ted Kennedy resided in following his 1960s election has gone on the market.

The Georgetown estate, considered an important piece of Kennedy family history, has an asking price of $22 million according to the Wall Street Journal. 

Ted Kennedy and his wife Joan rented the home in the prestigious Washington D.C neighborhood after Kennedy's election to the Senate in the 1960s. 

Kennedy, the younger brother of former president John F. Kennedy and former senator Robert, served in the Senate for almost 50 years. 

Dating back to 1887, the Edwardian-style nine-bedroom, ten-bath property remains an important meeting point for the country's top politicians. The huge home includes a private massage room, a 2,000 bottle wine cellar, and off-street parking for 11 cars.

According to Urban Turf, the home is among the most expensive in Georgetown - competing with Under Armour founder Kevin Plank's $29 million mansion.
