Jacqueline Kennedy’s Childhood Summer Home on Sale for $54 Million
The childhood summer retreat in the Hamptons of the late First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is on sale as two properties with a total price of just under $54 million. Jackie’s grandfather John Vernou Bouvier Jr purchased the grand property in 1917. The charming nearly 100-year-old mansion is named Lasata, a Native American phrase meaning “place of peace”, and was the vacation home of the Bouviers throughout the 1920s.
Reed Krakoff, Lasata’s current owner and the former creative director of Coach, split the original 11-acre compound into two parcels of land. The first, stretching 7.2 acres, goes for $38.995 million and comes with a 10-bedroom main house and a swimming pool. The second offers an additional four acres of land, features a tennis court, and is priced at $14.995 million.
After purchasing the home in 2007, Krakoff completed renovations which stayed consistent with the original decor. Listing agent Susan Breitenbach describes it as an “incredible and unique property; the most beautifully restored compound with excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail” and notes it “looks absolutely original but yet everything is perfect.”
