Anderson Cooper Sold His Historical Westhampton Home For $2.9 Million
This just in: CNN news anchor Anderson Cooper has sold one of the two properties he owns in Westhampton Beach, NY.
The 3,800-square-foot house at 20 St. George Place just went for $2,975,000, down from the original asking price of $3,599,000 set in July of last year. Enzo Morabito was the listing agent who represented Cooper.
Morabito provided some historical background on the location, saying that the area was once an estate owned by the St. George family. “The house next to [20 St. George Place] used to be a hunting lodge. People used to hunt ducks.”
Built in 1928, this charming cottage sits on the shore of the Aspatuck River. Cooper rented out the house during the summer, according to Realty Today. Its location on the river and easy access to Quantock Bay make it an ideal rental property for boating vacationers. “But you can’t get a big boat, which is kind of a blessing,” said Morabito.
“The cottage is open-spaced, but it keeps in line with a traditional,” said Morabito about the design of the house. “It’s traditional yet stylish. It’s an understated style that puts Ralph Lauren to shame.”
Talk about bragging rights: Besides saying they just bought Cooper’s house, the new owners can also say the house once belonged to Budd Schulberg, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of the classic movie “On the Waterfront.”
Must be nice. Flip it over to see how Anderson used to live.
