Place of Peace
The East Hampton home where Jackie Bouvier Kennedy spent her childhood summers can now be yours. The 11-acre estate on Further Lane known as Lasata which is a Native American word for Place of Peace was designed by architect Arthur C. Jackson in 1917. It was purchased by Delphine and Reed Krakoff in 2007 and was extensively renovated to bring it back to its former glory. Delphine who heads Pamplemousse Design decorated the home.
The property has an eight bedroom main house plus a one bedroom guesthouse, tennis court, swimming pool, two bedroom pool house, and three car garage. It is being listed by the Corcoran Group and Brown Harris Stevens as two separate parcels: $38.995 million buys the main house, swimming pool and guesthouse on 7.2 acres, and a roughly 4-acre adjacent parcel containing a sunken grass tennis court will list for $14.995 million. Brown Harris Stevens also has more extensive photos of the estate.
The fact that you won’t have to do any renovations or landscaping actually makes this property a bargain. Of course, you will have to hire a team of housekeepers and gardens to maintain the property but that’s a minor detail.
