The original Grey Gardens [pictured at center], a shingle-style home in East Hampton, on Long Island, N.Y., was the home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis’s aunt Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter “Little Edie.” The house first drew notoriety with the 1975 documentary of the same name, which revealed that the two ladies were living in squalor in the once-grand home. With new owners, that home became grand again, the documentary became a cult classic, and in 2009 begat an HBO movie starring Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore.

This owner of this 2011 home on Oyster Pond, now for sale, modeled its exterior on Grey Gardens. Realty agent Wesley Grover of Robert Paul Properties explained that it was “passion project of sorts” for the owner, who intended it as a summer home before deciding to spend more time elsewhere.
