It would appear the legendary Grey Gardens estate in East Hampton (not a very mean, nor a very Republican, town) may be on the market soon. Can you imagine?
Via Cottages & Gardens, which I know is always one of my daily visits:
Immortalized on screen and later in a Broadway musical, Grey Gardens hardly resembles the decrepit structure featured in the eponymous 1975 documentary that profiled its reclusive residents, “Big Edie” Bouvier Beale and her daughter, “Little Edie” Beale. The estate was sold 30 years ago to Sally Quinn and her husband, late Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, who put it through a massive renovation that succeeded in both restoring the original grandeur and adding touches of modern luxury.
I'm not sure it would be as fun to live there now that it's all pretty, awnestly.
