Journalist Sally Quinn, the previous owner, recently released Finding Magic, a memoir that covers her time spent at the iconic East Hampton home that has a storied 120-year history. "This is a bittersweet moment for me, but I feel grateful that the new owners will cherish the house as much as Ben, Quinn and I did, and that their time there will be as magical as ours was," she said in a statement. Back in 1979 Quinn purchased the property with her husband, Washington Post executive editor Ben Bradlee, and the couple completely renovated the estate.

The Beales, who were relatives of Jackie Kennedy, were the subjects of a 1975 documentary directed by Albert Maysles, Muffie Meyer, David Maysles,and Ellen Hovde, which later inspired an HBO movie, and Broadway musical.

Grey Gardens, which is located at 3 West End Road in East Hampton, was built in 1897. The 6,000sf shingle-style home includes seven bedrooms and several grand common areas. The abode is situated on 1.7 acres that boasts incredible ocean views, a pool, tennis court, and stunning gardens, of course.

Michael Schultz of Corcoran represented the property, which was listed in February for $19.995 million. He noted that Grey Gardens was bought by a couple who truly appreciate the house and plan on lovingly restoring its charm.
