Famed Hamptons estate Grey Gardens on the market for $19.99M
Estate once owned by eccentric relatives of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
Grey Gardens, the Hamptons home once owned by eccentric relatives of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, is for sale.
Newsday reports it has been listed for $19.995 million US.
In a famed 1975 documentary by Albert and David Maysles, it was the rundown home of Onassis' aunt, Edith Bouvier Beale, and her cousin, Edith Beale.
HBO made a 2009 Emmy-award winning movie about the story of Big Edie and Little Edie, starring Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore, respectively. Later it was also the subject of a noted Broadway musical created by Doug Wright, Scott Frankel and Michael Korie.
Longtime Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and his journalist wife, Sally Quinn, bought the home in 1977 and restored it.
Bradlee died in 2014. Quinn reportedly told a real estate agent the home didn't feel the same without him.
The three-story, shingle-style home was built in 1897. It features seven bedrooms and 6 1/2 bathrooms.
