Old and new pictures from this 18th-century mansion show that what’s for sale today (at $8.995 million) is still strikingly similar to when Jackie moved there in 1963.

Barefoot at 1055 High

Even though the seven units at EastBanc’s 1055 High sold out in three weeks earlier this year, the developer treated the press Tuesday to a “Socks Only” party to see what their buyers will be getting with these units, ranging from 3,470 to over 4,300 square feet, which cost between $3.75 million and over $5.5 million.
