Jackie Kennedy’s childhood home hit the market this week for $38.995 million. The charming property has the essence of the Bouviers. After all, the house was their summer getaway in the 1920s. Built by famed designer Arthur C. Jackson in 1917 and dubbed “Lasata,” which means “Place of Peace,” the charming home was purchased by famed designer Reed Krakoff in 2007 for $20 million. Krakoff made the estate his passion project; with help from his wife Delphine Krakoff, the couple remodeled the entire property and restored it to its glamorous roots.
The East Hampton property sits on over seven acres with 10 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. The enchanting mansion also includes two additional guest houses, a separate three-car garage and a luscious garden that is reminiscent of Versailles.
East Hampton is known for its luxurious homes, which may explain the average listing price of over $ 2.5 million. With its size, amenities and detailed remodel we can see how the dream-worthy home looks to claim the staggering price tag. The opportunity to stroll in the same garden that Jackie O once did makes this house worth every penny.
