A summer home fit for eventual American royalty just hit the market.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis spent childhood summers at this 4,291-square-foot home in East Hampton, New York, that the Bouvier family owned for decades.

The six-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom residence known as "Wildmoor" has an "extraordinary legacy of art and glamour," according to Paula Butler of Sotheby’s International Realty, who holds the $7.5 million listing.

The home — which features a gabled roof, a wrap-around porch and Palladian windows — was built in 1895, and the family was known to host weekend polo matches at a nearby field, entertaining friends in the house, as well.

Notable artist Adolph Gottlieb purchased the home in 1960 in order to be close to the ocean, and his original art studio is still located in the garden.

The property also includes a stunning atrium and pergola-covered terrace.

Several other homes associated with the former first lady, who died in May 1994 at age 64, have come up for sale recently. In 2017, another East Hampton estate — listed at $30 million — was sold.

Known as "Lasata," meaning "place of peace," the residence also has a guest house and pool house on its 7 acres of land.

The home in which she grew up also hit the market in 2017. Located along the Potomac River in Virginia, the nine-bedroom Georgian-style mansion was listed for $49.5 million at the time.
