Corcoran just listed one of the most storied homes in Hamptons history, Grey Gardens, which is for sale for the first time since 1979.
The property at 3 West End Road in East Hampton came to national attention in the 1970’s as the dilapidated home of its eccentric inhabitants, “Big Edie” and “Little Edie,” the aunt and first cousin, respectively, of Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
After an exposé by the National Enquirer left them facing eviction, Jackie and sister Lee Radziwill donated the money to keep the house up to code.
A 1975 documentary further expanded on the legend of the home and went on to become a Broadway musical, HBO film and play.
In 1979, Little Edie sold the home to journalist Sally Quinn and Ben Bradlee, the editor of the Washington Post.
Quinn wrote about the discovery of the home in this 1984 Architectural Digest article, “There were raccoons and the floor was partly dirt,” but she fell in love with it.
Since Bradlee passed away in 2014, she has rented out the property for the summers for as much as $200,000 per year. It is now listed for sale at $19.995 million.
Corcoran is also listing the childhood home of Jackie Kennedy in East Hampton, known as Lasata, for $38.995 million.
