Built in 1896, the original Grey Gardens carriage house has sold for $8.5 million.

The historic property at 132 Apaquogue Road in the Georgica section of East Hampton came on the market for the first time in over 50 years earlier this year in January. At the time, it was listed for $9.5 million, until that price eventually came down to $8.95 million. A contract was then signed in August.

The late 19th century home was once part of the Grey Gardens estate that was made famous by a 1975 documentary by Albert and David Maysles profiling Big Edie and Little Edie Bouvier Beale, relatives of Jackie Kennedy Onassis. At the very end of last year, the famed home sold for $15.5 million. The carriage house was separate from the original estate by the time the two Edies lived at the property.

Standing 3,500 square feet, the shingled home designed by Joseph Greenleaf Thorpe has been fully updated and offers five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, a 30-foot wainscoted carriage room, a tiled garden room, waterview balconies, a fireplace, and French doors that lead out to a shaded terrace outside. The 1.1-acre property has privacy hedging, a heated pool, and a detached 2.5-car garage.

If the new owners choose to expand, the property’s zoning allows for a 5,511-square-foot structure with a finished lower level.

Sotheby’s International Realty agents Frank Newbold and Marilyn Clark represented the listing.
