Jackie Kennedy’s Hamptons Retreat Hits the Market for $7.5 Million

Known as Wildmoor, the East Hampton estate was also once owned by artist Adolph Gottlieb

The Hamptons estate where a young Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis spent summers with her family has hit the market for $7.5 million.

Known as Wildmoor, the Shingle-style home was built in 1895 and belonged to Onassis’s grandfather, stockbroker John Vernou Bouvier Jr., who retained the property even after purchasing a larger and more well-known one nearby named Lasata.

Set on a one-acre parcel a few blocks from the ocean, Wildmoor features six bedrooms and four and a half baths across 4,300 square feet. In addition to the historical pedigree, highlights include large Palladian windows, a second-floor terrace, a wraparound porch, a pergola, and a solarium. The getaway also boasts original features such as a pair of tiled fireplaces and the master bath’s clawfoot tub.

With an address on coveted Apaquogue Road, the property also comes equipped with a light-filled barn, which celebrated Abstract Expressionist artist Adolph Gottlieb turned into an art studio after he bought the estate in 1960. Incidentally, Wildmoor is a few doors down from Grey Gardens, the fabled dwelling that once belonged to Big and Little Edie Beale, Onasis’s reclusive cousins.

The Hamptons real estate market has heated up in recent months, with urban dwellers flocking to the string of seaside communities in order to ride out the shelter-in-place orders with more space. Don’t be surprised if Wildmoor incites a bidding war.
