U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett and her husband have sold their northern Indiana home to a University of Notre Dame professor as their large family prepares for a move to the Washington, D.C., area.

Jesse Barrett said he and the couple’s seven children plan to join the justice in the Washington area in time for the start of the coming school year, leaving their longtime South Bend home behind. The couple’s broker with Irish Realty, Pat McCullough, said the Barretts accepted a Notre Dame professor’s purchase offer within about two weeks of listing the brick, six-bedroom, 4,232-square-foot home for $899,900.

Jesse Barrett said moving the family from South Bend is difficult for he and his wife, who have seven children, two of whom were adopted from Haiti.

“Six of our babies came home either from a hospital or from an international adoption to that house, so there’s just so many wonderful memories,” he said.

Jesse Barrett, a former federal prosecutor who is a partner with a South Bend-based law firm, said he wasn’t certain where or how he would practice law in the D.C. area. He worked at national law firm Sidley Austin in Washington from 2000 to 2002 and renewed his membership in the D.C. bar.
