In 1975, the film, named after the mansion, followed the lives of Jackie O’s aunt Edith Bouvier Beale (“Big Edie”) and Beale’s daughter, Kennedy’s cousin, Edith Beale (“little Edie”). The two formerly upper-class women live on a 10-bedroom property that is literally falling apart. The documentary highlights the eccentricities of Kennedy’s relatives.

In 2009, Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange starred in an HBO film of the same name, and Lange won an Emmy for her performance. The original documentary also inspired a Broadway musical.

Built in 1897, the Bouvier Beales bought the home in the 1920s. In 1977, Big Edie died, and little Edie sold the house to Ben Bradlee, an editor for the Washington Post and his wife Sally Quinn. Bradlee and Quinn were reportedly friends of JFK and Jackie Kennedy, and spent every August at the home until Bradlee died in 2014.

While the astronomical price tag is purely aspirational, there’s no denying the history of the house is fascinating! Plus the inside of the house is absolutely gorgeous!
