"Wildmoor", the Original Bouvier Property. The Bouvier family's summer house which they owned for decades,  called "Wildmoor", has an extraordinary legacy of art and glamour.  Built in 1895, this was the childhood home of both "Blackjack" Bouvier  and his daughter Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. The family hosted weekend  polo matches in a nearby field and entertained friends in this gracious  home.  In 1960, the famed Abstract Expressionist Adolph Gottlieb bought  the property to be near the ocean. His art studio, filled with light and  inspiration, can still be enjoyed in the garden.  The gabled roof,  wraparound porch, Palladian windows, generously sized rooms, stunning  atrium and pergola covered terrace combine to produce a classic summer  home. The coveted location on Apaquogue Road allows one to hear the  sounds of the ocean and enjoy a short walk to the beach. This is a truly  unique offering.
