Grey Gardens is Available for Lease



Grey Gardens in East Hampton is available for lengthy lease.Have a thing for cats and dressing up in leotards and headscarves? Have we got a property for you! Grey Gardens in East Hampton is being offered for a potential lengthy lease by owner Sally Quinn. The beautifully restored, infamous former home of “Big Edie” Bouvier Beale and her daughter, “Little Edie” Beale, which was purchased 30 years ago by Quinn and her husband, the late Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, is listed with Corcoran’s Gary DePersia for $175,000 for a full-year rental—minus the month of August—or $50,000 for the off-season. (“Sally wants to reserve the right to use the house in August,” DePersia explains.) Immortalized in the legendary 1975 documentary Grey Gardens, by Albert and David Maysles, the 6,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath house was completely renovated by Quinn and Bradlee and featured in the June 2012 issue of HC&G.
