Thursday, January 18: That is the day 121 Further Lane closed for $24 million with Douglas Elliman — a once-in-a-lifetime buy not only for its beauty, but for its legacy.
Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful homes in America, the 10-bedroom, 10-bath East Hampton estate is where young Jackie Kennedy Onassis, née Bouvier — who was born at Southampton Hospital — spent her summers. Named “Lasata” for the Native American word for “place of peace,” the Arthur Jackson home has been fully renovated and updated over the years, paying careful attention to detail.
“The photos speak for themselves,” said Eileen Oneill, co-listing agent alongside Carol Nobbs. “Not only is the structure and grounds of the property magnificent, the previous [owner] kept the integrity of the historic home while enhancing with a meticulous renovation to bring it into the modern day.”
The 8,500-square-foot estate sits on 7.15 acres, just a short walk to the beach and The Maidstone Club, Oneill said.
“It’s rare to find 7-plus acres on any of these coveted East Hampton streets,” she said, adding, “We’re thrilled to have found a buyer who appreciates the beauty and pedigree of this historically significant property.”
