East Hampton's famous Grey Gardens home is available for the year for $175,000.

The former home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' cousins, designed by Joseph Greenleaf Thorpe in 1897, was infamously condemned by the Town of East Hampton in the early 1970s. The squalid living conditions of Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter, "Little Edie," were shown in a 1975 documentary by Albert and David Maysles.

The late Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee and his wife, Sally Quinn, purchased the seven-bedroom, 6 1/2-bathroom home in 1979 and restored it.

The two-acre property, within walking distance of Georgica Beach, also includes a heated gunite pool, a Har-Tru tennis court and the legendary gardens.

The home is also available in June and July for $125,000 and in the winter for $60,000. It is listed with Gary DePersia of The Corcoran Group.
