Before she was First Lady Jackie Kennedy, she was Jacqueline Bouvier of the Hamptons. Growing up, the socialite and her family would spend their summers in East Hampton at their Wildmoor estate, which is currently on the market for $7.5 million. While in the area, Jackie would frequent the nearby Riding Club of East Hampton. It was here that she learned how to ride her first horse.

The club has since closed down. However, the building it once operated out of, which was built in 1745, has been turned into a charming family home—and it just sold, months after hitting the market earlier this year with an asking price of $1.995 million. The selling price is unclear, but according to Mansion Global, the property sold for close to its last asking price of $1.749 million.

Located at 9 Cross Hwy in East Hampton, this two-story shingle-style home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and two fireplaces. It boasts 2,000 square feet of space and remains truly evocative of the time period.

Besides its gorgeous interiors, the property's grounds are also a major selling point. This 0.9 acre of plot land is exceptionally spacious for the area and, as the listing notes, there is room to add a pool. Since the home is already equipped with an outdoor patio, a pool would go quite swimmingly. However, with the ocean just down the street at Two Mile Hollow Beach, there's already ample sunbathing opportunity.

Not to mention, the home is located at the intersection of both the village and the town of East Hampton, and is recognized by both municipalities. The property been designated with a Special Historic Landmark by the town.
