Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis has spent many a summer in the Hamptons, and one of the homes she visited as a child just hit the market. Called Wildmoor, the 4,291-square-foot residence belonged to Onassis’s grandfather, John Vernou Bouvier Jr., in the 1900s; in 1925, Bouvier also purchased a larger Hamptons estate known as Lasata.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Onassis and her family spent summers at the modestly sized Wildmoor house—not far from her grandfather and Lasata—in the 1930s and lived the rest of the time on Park Avenue in Manhattan. The home is located just a few blocks from the ocean, and sports a gabled roof, dormer windows, wraparound porch, and a large second-floor terrace.
Many original details remain in the 1865 house, like wood paneling, an antique claw foot tub, and a fireplace with colorful patterned tile. There are six bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, and one of the most impressive features is a solarium-inspired dining room that opens up to the backyard.
In 1960, the abstract expressionist painter Adolph Gottlieb purchased the property and transformed a former carriage house into an art studio. That structure is still present today, with plentiful light from large windows and skylights, and rustic wood floors. Other perks on the one-acre lot include landscaped gardens and a pergola-covered terrace. Intrigued? Wildmoor is on the market now for $7,500,000.
