Legendary television host Regis Philbin and his wife, Joy Philbin, are seeking to part ways with their stately Greenwich home after a decade of enjoying its grandeur and convenient location just outside of New York City. Listing it for 36% less than they paid, the couple is looking at the Greenwich market with a realistic eye and selling in order to spend more time with family in California. Now, a lucky buyer looking to live in the prestigious Connecticut town, where Mel Gibson also owns
, can snag this special estate for $4.595 million.Most famous for his talk shows like Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee
, then Live! With Regis and Kelly
, Philbin has no doubt entertained his fair share of celebrities at this elegant abode. Stone clad and impressive, the 13,661-square-foot mansion could even have room for his own studio, but the host and his wife made the home more about family.According to Mansion Global
, this is the couple’s favorite home they have ever lived in, and they have plenty to compare it to. “We celebrated many birthdays and holidays and never had to worry about inviting too many of our family and friends. There was always room for everyone,” Ms. Philbin reminisced in a statement.It’s easy to see why they love it so much. The home boasts 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, and 3 half baths along with specialty spaces like a “pub room” with a full bar, home theater, sauna, and wine cellar. Outside, a tennis court and pool are perfect amenities for staying active or entertaining.Set behind gates at 56 North Stanwich Road, the 2.6-acre property is no doubt a luscious change of scenery from the concrete of the city. Commuters can spread out here and embrace nature, yet be in Manhattan in just 45 minutes.Joseph Barbieri of Sotheby’s International Realty
