Serial house-buyer George Stephanopoulos and actress wife Alexandra Wentworth have put their Art Village home on the market (as was first noticed by our friends at Streeteasy). The couple, who sold their former East Hampton home very quickly back in 2012, aren't short of a bob or two, as ABC anchor George has signed a contract extension worth a cool $105M. Are they moving on up to a grander estate? We'll be interested to see where they land next.
The pair is asking $6.995M for the property, which is on a flag lot north of Hill Street. Built in 2003, the house is 4800 square feet, with five bedrooms and 6.5 baths. The style is laid-back and homelike; a buyer wouldn't need or want to do many updates, we think. Outside, there's 1.47 acres of land, including a gunite pool and sunken tennis court. The property last sold in May 2013 for $4.5M; $7M is a little ambitious, but the house is so likable we wouldn't be surprised if it found a new owner quickly.
