Architectural Digest: Grey Gardens Estate Listed for $20 Million

The Hamptons home was made famous by the popular ‘Grey Gardens’ documentary released in 1975.

The Hamptons is known for its luxury homes. But there are few houses that match the fame of the Grey Gardens.

Previously owned by Edith Ewing Beale and Edith Bouvier Beale—a mother-daughter duo related to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis—Grey Gardens was a house that got ruined. The health department even condemned the house, which was filled with hundreds of cats that its owners had taken in. The home eventually became well-known to the general public through the 1975 documentary, Grey Gardens.

After Edith Bouvier sold the home when her mom died, Grey Gardens was purchased by journalist Sally Quinn and her husband Ben Bradlee. They restored both the house and its grounds. Now, the 1.7-acre property is on the market for $20 million. Grey Gardens features seven bedrooms, six and a half baths, a pool and a tennis court.
