John F. Kennedy's Virginia Weekend Home, Wexford, Can Be Yours For $11 Million (PHOTOS)

John and Jackie Kennedy's Virginia country house is on the market -- it was the only house that the Kennedys built together, and for just under $11 million, you can have your own 160-acre Camelot in horse country.

Wexford, where the president was only able to spend a short amount of time before his assassination, was named by Jackie after the Ireland town where Kennedy's family has its roots.

Jackie supposedly had a White House decorator help with its interior design. But Kennedy himself wasn't crazy about the place -- he preferred being by the ocean, while Jackie was partial to fox hunting.

Ronald Reagan was a later resident -- he rented Wexford from a Nixon cabinet member in 1980, and prepared for his debates against Jimmy Carter there. He was probably happy; his next door neighbors were then-Senator John Warner (R-Va.) and his wife, Elizabeth Taylor, who claimed to have had affairs with both Kennedy and Reagan at other times in their lives.

Check out these listing photos to see what you think of the four-bedroom, five-bath home in Middleburg, Va. -- about an hour outside D.C. -- and its pool, tennis courts, pond, stables and other amenities. Even if you're not crazy about Wexford itself, just imagine the adventures you might have there:
