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.

Lasata, or ìplace of peace,î Designed by architect Arthur Jackson and built in 1917, is universally recognized as one of the most beautiful homes in America. Summer home to the Bouvier family through the 1920s. Jackie Kennedy Onassis spent many a childhood summer at this huge estate, 121 Further Lane, East Hampton, NY

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.
