6sqft has already taken a look at the posh Upper East Side building where Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis grew up, and now we can go inside the 100-year-old Hamptons estate where she spent her childhood summers. As the Wall Street Journal first reported, the 11-acre property in East Hampton known as Lasata is currently owned by fashion designer and former Coach executive Reed Krakoff, who’s listed the entire Arts and Crafts-style residence for more than $50 million.
As the Journal explains, the property is listed as two separate parcels. For $40 million, you’ll get the 8,500-square-foot, 10-bedroom main house and the 7.2 acre site that holds the pool and guesthouse. An additional $15 million gets you an adjacent four acres with a sunken grass tennis court.
Jackie O summered here throughout the 1920s, until she was about 12, as it was owned by her grandfather John Vernou Bouvier Jr. Since then, there’s only been a handful of owners. Krakoff purchased it in 2007 for $25 million and then embarked on a major renovation with his wife Delphine, founder of interior design firm Pamplemousse. They, too, used it as a summer home, but last year they dropped $14 million on the 50-acre former Huguette Clark estate in Connecticut, where they’re now spending the warmer months.
In a recent Architectural Digest feature, the couple explained their preservation-minded renovation, explaining that they “were very disciplined about getting rid of whatever wasn’t house-appropriate and bringing in things that were.” This included utilizing 200-year-old, reclaimed oak floors to retain “that creaky feeling” and unearthing the original grid-pattern millwork walls in the living room that were featured in a book on Jacqueline Kennedy.
