Jackie Kennedy’s Childhood Summer Home ‘Lasata’ Lists for $55M in East Hampton
Presenting perhaps one of the rarest real estate opportunities on the East End, the former summer home of the Bouvier family (a.k.a. Jackie Kennedy’s family) has come onto the market. Constructed in 1917, the remarkable East Hampton estate was restored and remodeled in recent years. Maintaining stately charm while shining with revamped, artful interiors, the 8,500-square-foot residence on Further Lane is asking $55 million.
“Lasata,” meaning “Place of Peace,” was named by the Bouviers and the East Hampton property’s moniker and presence has endured ever since. Amidst just over seven acres and enveloped by centuries-old trees, the home was originally designed by Arthur C. Jackson. It was last on the market in 2018 when TV/film producer David Zander purchased it for $24 million. He then brought in interior designer Pierre Yovanavich and landscape artist Louis Benech to inform its next chapter. It was a “yearslong renovation,” according to Mansion Global, and involved ventures such as reconstructing a sagging part of the historic facade.
“Lasata is considered one of our region’s most important and beautiful estates,” said listing agent Eileen O’Neill. “Under the seller’s stewardship, the home’s interior has been painstakingly updated and enhanced while preserving its remarkable history. It’s an iconic property and truly one-of-a-kind.”
Each room brims with unique light fixtures, elegant woodwork, and a dreamy mix of textures. Even with its recent transformation, it’s easy to see how the gracious rooms were ideal for the high society family. The home in total holds ten bedrooms, nine full bathrooms, and four half bathrooms, large enough for even the grandest of gatherings. Perhaps the only question left to the imagination is which bedroom was the then-future first lady’s?
Eileen O’Neill of The Corcoran Group and Ed Petrie of Compass hold the magnificent estate listing.
