DansPapers.com learned this week that Anderson Cooper‘s home in Quiogue and Maurice DuBois‘ Quogue residence have both found buyers, and both in a relatively short amount of time.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper owns two cottages in Quiogue, but not for long. That’s right, Cooper is leaving the Hamptons.
Cooper’s primary Quiogue residence is 20 St. George Place, on Aspatuck Creek.
Nearly three years ago he brought the neighboring 12 St. George Place, a 2.4-acre property with 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, from the estate of On The Waterfront screenwriter Budd Schulberg for $1.7 million. The estate also includes a 20′-by-40′ heated Gunite pool with jacuzzi, and a pool house with full bath. Cooper renovated the house and quickly put it back on the market for $3 million. He dropped the price recently to $2,599,000.
A few months back Cooper bought a new pad in Litchfield, Connecticut. Then in July he listed 20 St. George Place with Enzo Morabito of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Though 12 St. George has sat on the market for a while, 20 St. George was picked up in a snap. The residence went into contract last week. It was listed for $3,199,000, though the final sale price is under wraps for the time being.
In September, DuBois, the CBS 2 news anchor, and his wife, Andrea DuBois, put their Quogue home on the market, hoping to fetch $2,599,000. Also listed with the Douglas Elliman Real Estate Enzo Morabito Team, the 5-bedroom, 5-bath residence at 44 Box Tree Road sits on 1 acre. The amenities include a heated pool, tennis court and indoor-outdoor sound system. They paid just $1.7 million in 2004, and now they have a fully executed contract for an undisclosed amount.
