Talk Show Host Jimmy Fallon Buys in Sagaponack
From “Saturday Night Live” Weekend Update co-anchor to self-titled late night talk show host, actor Jimmy Fallon has been making moves in the world of entertainment. As it turns out, the 36-year-old comedian is making some real estate moves as well. Fallon has reportedly purchased a new home in the Hamptons for $5.7 million.
With the success of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” taking off, one would suspect the late-night host to splurge on a modern mansion or robust waterfront property, right? Wrong. The much-loved funnyman chose a unique 2.2-acre piece of Sagaponack real estate that used to be an old horse farm. Built in 1850, Fallon’s new Hamptons home includes a 3-story, 3,500-sq ft main house with 6 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, two separate guest cottages, a barn, heated pool, and a 4-car garage all surrounded by mature trees and only a mile away from the beach.
According to the New York Daily News, Fallon is closing on the home this week. The 1800s farmhouse property first hit the market last June for $6,975,000 and took two price cuts before arriving at the reported sale price of $5.7 million. This isn’t too far from the median list price for the Sagaponack area. According to Zillow’s Real Estate Market Reports, listing prices for the New York luxury town clock-in at $4.2 million.
