George Stephanopoulos must spend a lot of money on moving trucks. By our count, the new cohost of ABC’s Good Morning America—who is moving from Washington to New York—has owned at least seven homes in the last 13 years in three cities.
Even after buying his most recent place—in Long Island’s East Hampton—Stephanopoulos and wife Alexandra Wentworth aren’t done: We hear they’re house-hunting in Manhattan, possibly planning to first rent for a few months.
While working in the Clinton White House, Stephanopoulos lived in a Dupont Circle rowhouse that he bought for $835,000 in 1994 and sold in 1997 to the bakery Marvelous Market for $1.1 million.
After Stephanopoulos married actress Ali Wentworth in 2001, the couple bought a condo on East 19th Street in Manhattan for $2.4 million and sold it a few months later.
In 2002, the newlyweds also bought a 4,400-square-foot townhouse on Georgetown’s 28th Street. They paid $2 million for the six-bedroom, four-bath Federal and sold it for $2.9 million in 2006.
In 2003, the couple sold a summer house in East Hampton for $1.2 million. They owned the three-bedroom cottage for a year.
In 2004, they bought a larger house in East Hampton, a four-bedroom, four-bath shingle-style summer house for just under $2 million. They sold it in 2007 for $2.5 million.
In January, the couple put their Georgetown home on the market for $6.4 million. They bought the five-bedroom, seven-bath house for $5.2 million in 2006. It has an elevator, walled-in flagstone patio, and master-bedroom suite with a dressing room for the dapper morning host’s wardrobe.
This winter, as they prepared to return to New York, Stephanopoulos and his wife spent $3.5 million on a five-bedroom, four-bath home in East Hampton. According to the Wall Street Journal, the house sits on an acre and has a pool and guest cottage.
