In the beginning of the calendar year, the original Grey Gardens carriage house went on the sales market for the first time in 56 years—just months after the famed adjacent estate of Big Edie and Little Edie Bouvier closed for $15.5 million.
Eight months and a price reduction later, the 19th-century home designed by Joseph Greenleaf Thorpe has found a buyer and a contract has been signed under the most recent $8.95 million asking price. It was first listed for $9.5 million under Sotheby’s International Realty agents, Frank Newbold and Marilyn Clark.
Spanning 3,516 square feet on just over a full acre, the south-of-the-highway Georgica section home has five bedrooms and four full bathrooms. The updated structure also features a 30-foot wainscoted carriage room with 10-foot ceilings, a fireplace, and French doors that lead out to a shaded terrace, a tiled garden room, and waterview balconies.
Sited near the ocean at Georgica Beach, the house offers second-floor ocean views and views over Lily Pond.
The hedged property also has a heated pool and a detached two-car garage. It could accommodate a 5,511-square-foot structure and a finished lower level if the new owners choose to expand.
