You can own a part of Hamptons history with the purchase of Lasata, the 11-acre childhood vacation home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and current abode of fashion designer Reed Krakoff. The East Hampton property was owned by the former First Lady's grandparents, John Vernou Bouvier Jr. and Maude Sergeant Bouvier, in the 1920s.

Listed collectively for $53.99 million, Krakoff decided to split the estate - with one option being the century-old main house, guesthouse, pool and tennis court on 7.2 acres, which is listed for $38.995 million. The other choice is 4 acres - located adjacently - that feature a tennis court. It is on the market for $14.995.

Krakoff and his interior designer wife Delphine Krakoff scooped up the East Hampton abode in 2007.

Lasata, Native American for "place of peace," was designed by architect Arthur C. Jackson and built in 1917. According to the listing, it has had only "a handful of owners over the past century" and was "impeccably restored to the highest standards in 2007."

The listing agents are Susan Breitenbach of The Corcoran Group and Peter Turino of Brown Harris Stevens.
