ABC’s “Good Morning America” chief anchor George Stephanopoulos and his wife, Ali Wentworth, have listed their Hamptons mansion for $5.995 million, according to the listings on Sotheby’s International Realty and Trulia.
Stephanopoulos, 56, who rose to prominence as communications director in the Clinton White House, also hosts ABC’s Sunday political show “This Week.” Actor and comedian Wentworth, 53, appeared in TV’s “In Living Color” and in the movies “Jerry Maguire,” “Office Space” and “It’s Complicated.” Stephanopoulos and Wentworth have two children.
The couple purchased the 4,800-square-foot home in May 2013 for $4.5 million and previously listed it for $6.995 million in May 2016, according to Variety.
The five-bedroom, seven-bathroom home sits at the end of a private lane on nearly one and a half acres of land, according to the listing. Surrounded by densely planted trees and hydrangea bushes, the gated home is secluded from view by any of the neighbors yet is within easy access of local beaches and the center of Southampton village. A pebble drive leads to the main entrance of the house.
The home’s beach house aesthetic is apparent from the entrance foyer all the way to the back yard. Generous doorway openings between each room create a light, airy feel to the entire house. Tall windows also allow natural light to reach every corner of the home. Outdoors, a covered veranda, accessible from several interior rooms, looks out onto an expansive lawn with an oversized swimming pool and sunken tennis court.
The double-height foyer provides a dramatic entrance to the home and leads to several of the main rooms on the first floor. Dark wood floors throughout the two upper levels add a layer of sophistication, but are balanced by bright paint colors to emphasize the home is in a beach town.
On the first floor, a master suite comes with a private library and extensive views of the back yard.
Several entertaining spaces are spread throughout the home. A formal dining room could easily fit a dozen dinner guests, and the spacious living room could comfortably host a larger group for a casual cocktail party.
Downstairs, the carpeted game room and lounge provide another space to entertain guests. Another bedroom with four built-in bunk beds provides extra space for anyone who stays over.
The kitchen contains dual refrigerators and ovens, plus an oversized marble island with two sinks. Bay-style windows from floor to ceiling at the back of the room stay consistent with the rest of the house by letting in abundant natural light through French-style doors.
A wine cellar that can store at least 1,000 bottles is on the lower level. Glass walls seal the room from the rest of the house and keep the temperature from fluctuating.
A covered patio with subtle arches between the columns opens out onto a back yard. The patio is accessible from several rooms on the ground floor via French doors. The oversized pool is to one side of the back yard, allowing for a leftover expanse of green space in the rear of the house. This view also shows the second-story outdoor deck on the left of the house.
