Grab every scarf and grab the train: We’re headed to Grey Gardens this summer. The Grey Gardens, the one once famously inhabited by Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale aka “Big Edie” and her daughter Edith Bouvier Beale aka “Little Edie,” is available for rent this summer. For just $125,000 you can inhabit a cleaned-up version of the estate for both June and July. That gives you two full months to perfect your best Jessica-Lange-As-Big-Edie impressions AND see if you persuade Drew Barrymore to come over for tea. (You totally can.)
A piece of American folk lore can be yours from now until the end of July when you rent East Hamptons fabled Grey Gardens 2 acre estate with pool and tennis next to Georgica Beach. Originally designed by Joseph Greenleaf Thorpe in 1897, this 6000 Hampton orginal, was totally renovated and restored to its orginally condition with the addition of today’s amenities when the current owners rescued it some 30 years ago. With gracious common rooms coupled with enough bedrooms to comfortably house all your special guests, this ode to another era additionally offers heated gunite pool, Har-Tru N/S tennis court and of course the legendary gardens, which are likely to be some of the most beautiful you will ever see. Stroll to Georgica Beach a few hundred yards away or sip something iced in the little stucco cottage hidden within the lush landscape. History can never be truly owned but you can rent a piece of it this year.
Blah, blah, blah. Just tell me where you put the cats.
