Description: Longtime New York City newscaster and television personality Ernie Anastos has listed his Armonk home for $1.975 million. Anastos is a Hall of Fame Broadcaster and has won more than 30 Emmy awards and nominations. As of 2017, every March 21 is Ernie Anastos day in New York City. He currently anchors the news at 6 p.m. on Fox 5 NY WNYW.
Anastos and his wife, Kelly, bought the French Normandy-style house new in 1995 and immediately set about customizing it to their tastes, adding custom trim, moldings and cabinetry, says listing agent Gladys Di Sisto. They also finished the walk-out lower level, adding a full bar, recreation area, gym and home theater.
“You have beautiful views out from the deck,” she says. “All of the windows look out to the woods and surrounding hills.”
The 6.110-square-foot house has four bedrooms, five full bathrooms and one partial bath. It’s on a 1.94-acre site.
Asking price: $1.975 million
Selling points: The house is on a cul-de-sac in the Wampus Lakes Estates neighborhood. Amenities and design features include a two-story foyer, extensive custom millwork and built-ins, hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings, French doors, an expansive mahogany deck with custom lighting, three fireplaces, a circular driveway and a first-floor master suite.
