After sitting on the real-estate market for more than a year, TV and radio personality Glenn Beck's 8,270-square-foot New Canaan home on Ponus Ridge Road has been sold, according to real estate broker Lynne Leonard.
The home, which had an asking price of $3.65 million, sold for $3.6 million, she said.
A few weeks ago, media reports surfaced that Beck's home had been sold. Last week, however, Leonard told the New Canaan News that the deal was not final.
"In the past, we had four almost-completed deals that ended up falling through," Leonard said. "That is why we were a little paranoid about this one. Thankfully, the deal is now official. All the paperwork has been signed and they will close in a few weeks."
Reports of Beck selling his homes in New Canaan and New York surfaced after he recently announced that he is leaving his long-time post at Fox News.
