The Hamptons mansion made famous by the documentary Grey Gardens, a gay classic since its release in 1975, is now for rent.
Grey Gardens was the dilapidated Long Island home of Edith "Big Edie" Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale, the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, respectively. The Beales were living in squalor, with raccoons, cats, and detritus filling the house, when the Maysles brothers filmed their documentary. The straight-talking Big Edie and eccentric Little Edie became cult favorites with their heart-wrenching story of broken dreams among the nation's bourgeoisie. The documentary was turned into a Broadway musical starring Christine Ebersole and a HBO film starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange.
Grey Gardens has been lovingly refurbished, with 10 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, and a pool. The home is available in June and July for only $125,000. Read more here.
