The 10,000 square-foot home was built in 2008 and opened to the public as a showcase of "green design" in April 2010. Mary Kennedy was an architect and responsible for the energy efficient features of the home, which included solar panels, geo-thermal heating and fiber optic lighting.

Robert Kennedy, Jr., filed for divorce one month after the house tour; two years later, Mary Kennedy committed suicide in a barn behind the main home. 

Muffin Dowdle of Ginnel Real Estate is the listing agent for the home, which includes an entrance hall, formal dining room with fireplace, living room with fireplace, a terrace, library with a fireplace, a master suite with a fireplace and six additional bedroom suites, according to the listing.

Also included in the home, which sits on over 10 acres, is a recreation room witha kitchenette, an elevator, sauna and swimming pool.

Salvaged and recyled materials are featured throughout the home, said Robert F. Kennedy in 2010, a kitchen countertop, wood floors and marble used in the bathrooms.
