Jackson Jr.'s D.C. House Listing Pulled From Public View

Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s Washington D.C. townhouse is off the market, at least publicly.

The real estate listing for his family's four-bedroom, five-level townhome in Dupont Circle was pulled from public view and listed as private.

Safety concerns motivated the decision, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Zillow.com originally listed the home in Dupont Circle as an "exquisite Victorian style home" with three full baths, two half-baths, five fireplaces, a sun room, roof-top deck with jacuzzi, one-car attached garage and two kitchens.

An aide for the representative said last week the home was being sold to pay for healthcare.

"Like millions of Americans, Congressman Jackson and Mrs. Jackson are grappling with soaring healthcare costs and are selling their residence to help defray costs of their obligations," Jackson chief of staff Rick Bryant said. "The Congressman would like to personally thank everyone who has offered prayers on behalf of his family."

Jackson went on medical leave from Congress in June. It later was revealed by his office that he was diagnosed with bi-polar depression and was being treated at the Mayo Clinic. Jackson returned home last month to recover at home with his family.

Though the congressman remains on the November ballot, the home listing raised questions about his political future in Washington. Jackson has not yet returned to work and his current condition remains unclear.
