Grey Gardens, the infamous East Hampton estate once home to two aging, eccentric relatives of First Lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis, is available as a holiday rental, the New York Post reported.

The property was immortalized in a 1976 film by Albert and David Maysles, which charted the everyday lives of the reclusive former socialites, Big Edie and Little Edie, who by that time were living in squalor.

The women sold the house in 1979 for $220,000 to Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee. The 18-room, 6,000-square-foot property has since been restored and has a pool and a tennis court.

It’s listed by the Corcoran Group’s Gary DePersia for $7,500 for the week of Thanksgiving and $12,500 over the week of Christmas, the Post said. [NYP]Katherine Clarke
