Rachel ‘Bunny’ Lambert Mellon’s Oyster Harbors Cape Cod estate sold

OSTERVILLE — The Oyster Harbors estate once owned by socialite and horticulturalist Rachel “Bunny” Lambert Mellon, which contains some of the very last gardens she designed, has bought for $19 million right after four months on the current market.

The grounds, with a private dock and sweeping sights of Nantucket Sound, hold “almost 50 several years of stylistic inspiration and distinctive layout from the clever socialite,” said a push launch from Robert Paul Homes, whose agent, Zenas Crocker, marketed the iconic home in the gated neighborhood.

“A family that’s been in the spot for a few of generations acquired the property. As significantly as we know, their intention is to preserve it as the historic residence it is and has constantly been,” Crocker said in a phone interview Wednesday.
