A little more than three years after picking up this five-bedroom on East Hampton's Dunemere Lane, ABC News' political correspondent George Stephanopoulos and his wife, actress Alexandra Wentworth*, are moving on. Last listed for $5.5M, the home was only on the market for a month before it switched over to "In Contract."
Judging by the details, the quick sale comes as no surprise. Originally dating back to 1890s, the residence underwent an expansion in the early 90s at the hands of Francis Fleetwood and saw a recent renovation via Form Architecture + Interiors. "A chic and comfortable interior décor" from Michael S. Smith rounds out the offering's updates. The 4100 square footer also boasts amenities like a chef's kitchen, a master suite with its own fireplace, and a double sized living room. Just steps from Guild Hall, the one acre property also features a 60' gunite pool and a separate guest cottage.
Depending on the cost of that renovation and interior design work (and the final purchase price), Mr. Stephanopoulos and Ms. Wentworth are in a great position to come away with a nice little profit. The pair originally shelled out $3.5M for the place back in December of 2009.

*We would have included Ms. Wentworth in the headline, but her husband has a LONG last name.
