The Wildmoor property, which is the Bouvier family’s original home is being sold by Sotheby’s 


The ‘Wildmoor’ property, childhood home of former First Lady Jackie Kennedy, is on the U.S property market for $7.5 million.

The Bouvier’s summer house, which they owned for decades, was built in 1895, and was the childhood home of both ‘Blackjack’ Bouvier and his daughter Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy.

The Kennedys would host family weekend polo matches in a nearby field and entertained friends in the home. The house is located in East Hampton, New York, just a short walk from the beach.

Jackie Kennedy lived in Manhattan during the year and would spend her summers in the country home.

Sotheby’s International Realty

The home boasts a beautiful traditional wraparound porch, as well as a gabled roof and Palladian windows.

The home’s sun room opens out into terrace surrounded by greenery.

The interior of the home features stunning wood paneling, from the main staircase to the large dining room, to the living room.

Sotheby’s International Realty

The property holds six bedrooms and four bathrooms, including this beautiful clawfoot bathtub.

Sotheby’s International Realty

Each of the bedrooms has a touch of classic style, from floral wallpaper to light-filled bay windows.

Sotheby’s International Realty

After the Bouvier’s sold the home, the famed Abstract Expressionist Adolph Gottlieb bought the property in 1960. His art studio can still be enjoyed in the garden.

The home is being sold by Sotheby’s International Realty for $7.5 million.
