And it'll only cost you about half of Sally Quinn paid to purchase the house in 1979!

Enjoy Another Summer in a Summer Town at Grey Gardens
The legendary Grey Gardens estate in East Hampton is now available to rent this June and July for just $125,000.
Although the home was built in 1897, it was made famous by a 1975 documentary starring then-owners Edith "Big Edie" Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale. They went a little crazy and the film includes a famous pop in by one of their relatives, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The former first lady was horrified to discover the Beales were hoarders and living with numerous cats, raccoons, garbage, decay, other detritus.
Eventually, the 6,000-sq-ft home set on 1.7 acres finally ended up in more capable hands and was lovingly restored and renovated. Today, it includes 10 bedrooms and 6.5 baths, a heated gunite pool, a Har-Tru tennis court, and of course, those famously lush gardens.
