Grey Gardens on the Market

If you are lucky enough to have an extra $19,995,000 to spend on real estate, you could be the new owner of Grey Gardens!  Located on 1.7 acres in East Hampton near the beach, this amazing property is so rich with history and lots of drama, two movies and a Broadway play have all paid homage to it. 

Jackie Kennedy's Aunt and Cousin lived in this house for years as it turned into a dilapidated state barely suitable for the raccoons that ran around amongst the cats.   Once Big Edie (the Aunt) passed, Little Edie sold the house, holding out for someone who promised not to tear it down.  Enter Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn.  They meticulously restored the house and surrounding gardens and let several magazines capture the end result.

Sally Quinn is the seller and I am sure this awesome house won't be on the market very long.  If you haven't seen the original movie Grey Gardens or the HBO reboot a few years ago with Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore, you should.  You will be amused for sure!

Feeling Staunch,
