Sheila Nevins Lists Connecticut Compound

Reigning documentary-producing queen Sheila Nevins, president of documentary and family programming for HBO and Cinemax, has her bucolic estate in Connecticut’s pastorally picturesque Litchfield County up for sale on the open market, with an asking price of $2.75 million. Property records indicate the super-producer and her husband, former Wall Street bigwig Sidney Koch, acquired the 25-plus-acre spread in the fall of 2000 for $1.35 million, and digital listing details show the faux-timbered English Country Tudor mansion measures in at nearly 11,000 square feet, with five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.

A generous entrance hall with fireplace, substantial formal living and dining rooms with exposed-wood ceiling beams and a heavily paneled library are joined by an oversized eat-in kitchen that opens to a sizable and sunny winter garden. The gated, pond-fronting property also features a game room, gym and wine cellar, as well as a swimming pool and pool house, a six-room caretaker’s residence, garage parking for six cars, park-like lawns and expansive meadows ringed by dense, privacy-ensuring woods. Property is listed by Rick Distel of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty. Other notable Litchfield County homeowners include Diane von Furstenberg, Henry Kissinger, Anderson Cooper, Meryl Streep and Vanity Fair publisher Graydon Carter.

Our research reveals Nevins — a 27-time Emmy winner whose extensive credits include 2014 Oscar winner “Citizenfour,” the recently released Scientology expose “Going Clear” and the hotly anticipated Kurt Cobain biodoc “Montage of Heck,” debuting May 4 — is a bit of a real estate mogul who owns a substantial number of apartments in Manhattan. We counted at least four in a luxury tower on the Upper East Side, and five in the same Chelsea complex where a two bedroom and two bathroom unit she owns on the ninth floor is newly listed at just shy of $3 million.
