June 27. 2019: Jackie's Red Gate Farm has been listed for $65 million by her daughter Caroline.
“Forty years ago, my mother fell in love with Martha’s Vineyard,” Caroline said in a press release announcing the sale. “When she found Red Gate Farm, it was a perfect expression of her romantic and adventurous spirit. The dunes and ponds and rolling hills of Aquinnah gave her the chance to create a world where she could be so close to nature, close to her family and friends, and, most importantly, close to her beloved books. She even built a fairy treehouse for her grandchildren.” Now, she said, it is time to pass on the torch.
“Those grandchildren are grown, so now it is time for us to follow my mother’s example and create our own worlds. We hope that a new family will treasure this place as we have for three generations. We are excited about the next chapter for Red Gate Farm.”
