Fashion designer Tom Ford recently scooped up the East Hampton estate where Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis spent her childhood summers for US$52 million. According to Compass Realty, this estate was constructed in 1917 and is dubbed Lasata — or “place of peace” in the Algonquin language.
Bought in 1925 by Jackie’s grandfather, John Vernou Bouvier Jr., the 10-bedroom property spans roughly seven acres, including a two-bedroom guesthouse, a caretaker’s cottage, a pool house, and a three-car garage. Ocean waves can be heard throughout the main house, while the manicured grounds contained neatly trimmed lawns, an orchard, and a flower meadow.
