This 3,516-square-foot residence is the original carriage house built in 1856 belonging to the famous Grey Gardens estate, where the reclusive mother and daughter duo — Big Edie and Little Edie Beale (relatives of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis) — once lived. The main home was sold last year.

First built in 1856 and currently on the market for the first time in over 50 years, the carriage home is comprised of five bedrooms and four full baths and has been renovated into a light-and-airy modern beach house.

Listed by Frank Newbold and Marilyn Clark of Sotheby’s International Realty for $9.5 million, it’s located on 1.1 acre with stunning ocean and reserve views.

Once the main carriage room, the living room features paneled walls, a fireplace and large windows with French doors that flood the space with natural light.

A cheery kitchen is accented with yellow paint and countertops, which are a beautiful contrast to the black and white checkered floors.

Outside, there’s a heated 45-foot pool, but if you’d rather play in the ocean, Georgica Beach is just moments away. The home also has balconies with a nice view of the water.
