Grey Gardens, the East Hampton house made famous in the 1975 documentary about Jackie Kennedy Onassis’s relatives, is on the market. In the documentary, Grey Gardens was the decrepit, and rundown home of Onassis’ aunt Edith Bouvier Beale and her cousin, Edith Beale. Little Edie sold the house in 1979 to former Washington Post Executive Editor Ben Bradlee and his wife, journalist Sally Quinn, who restored the house from it’s dilapidated condition.
The three-story, shingle-style home was built in 1897. It’s approximately 6,000 square feet and situated on 1.7 acres. The home has seven bedrooms and 6 1/2 bathrooms, and a guest house.
