The palatial property, aptly named Lasata, the Native American word for “place of peace,” was listed for a whopping $55 million. The Wall Street Journal reported first. Originally built in 1917 by architect Arthur C. Jackson, the residence was previously owned by John Vernou Bouvier Jr., the former First Lady’s grandfather. As a child, Onassis is said to have often spent her summers on the seven-hectare site.
