It’s grey meets platinum in this summer lease. American Express is renting the iconic estate at 3 West End Road — made famous in the cult classic documentary, “Grey Gardens” — for an undisclosed amount, the New York Post reported. The property’s latest rental listing asked $275,000 for the full summer season and the sale price is just a sliver below $18 million. American Express will use the property to host “seasonal events,” the Post reported. The current owner of the East Hampton home is Washington Post columnist Sally Quinn, who shared the home with her late husband, Ben Bradlee. He acquired the nine-bedroom estate for $220,000 in 1979. [NYP]
