Hamptons Home Where Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Spent Childhood Summers For Sale

Hamptons Home Where Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Spent Childhood Summers For Sale

26.05.20

An East Hampton home that once belonged to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’s grandfather, John Vernou Bouvier Jr., has come to market for $7.5 million. The three-story dwelling, known fondly as Wildmoor, was where the future first lady would spend her summers with her mother, Janet Lee Bouvier, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Built back in 1895, the sprawling one-acre estate consists of a six-bedroom main house and what was formerly a carriage house. A later owner of the home, the late abstract expressionist Adolph Gottlieb, converted the carriage house into what is now an art studio. Many of the 4,500-square-foot main house’s original features still remain, however, including a gabled roof, a wraparound porch, Palladian windows, and an eye-catching atrium and pergola-covered terrace out back.

Within the house, historic details that can still be found include wood paneling, an antique claw-foot bathtub, and a fireplace that boasts colorful tiles. According to the listing agent, the home’s delicate patterned wallpaper might even be original.

It was at this residence that the elder Bouvier family members often hosted weekend polo matches and entertained friends, according to the property listing. And though Jackie’s grandparents actually upgraded to a different East Hampton home known as Lasata prior to her birth, they didn't sell off Wildmoor right away. So, the future first lady and her parents were allowed to stay there rent-free, the WSJ reports. “The Bouviers lived on Park Avenue in Manhattan and spent each summer in Wildmoor…near Grandfather Bouvier’s splendid summer house Lasata, where Janet kept her horses,” author Fred Glueckstein wrote in his 2006 book Of Men, Women and Horses.
