Isaacson to sell house in Bronxville for D.C.

Aspen CEO moving into $2 million Georgetown home

No more commuting for outgoing CNN topper Walter Isaacson.

Though there were rumors in his hometown Bronxville, N.Y., that the new CEO of the Aspen Institute would be jumping back and forth to Foggy Bottom, Isaacson’s definitely migrating south for good.

“We are in the process of buying the house in Georgetown and of selling our Bronxville home to a friend,” he wrote in an email. “Both deals are skedded to close by May, I think.”

A knowing neighbor says that Isaacson, who was commuting between New York and Atlanta when he was at CNN, would likely get somewhere between $1.2 million and $1.5 million for his Westchester home. Published reports have Isaacson’s new D.C. digs costing upwards of $2 million.

Located on the Yonkers side of the tracks (bad schooling, but you get the tony Bronxville P.O. address, and you don’t have to pay high real-estate taxes), the house is in the leafy, dreamy vicinity where ABC News prexy David Westin and Sony Music chief exec Andrew Lack reside.

Isaacson’s house is “well-landscaped, and he just put in a nice pool a few years ago,” the neighbor said, “but he really doesn’t have much of a yard.”
