Elisabeth Hasselbeck Moves From Greenwich Mansion to Nashville Estate (EXCLUSIVE)

Former “Survivor” contestant and fearlessly outspoken conservative talk-show host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who voluntarily left her plum gig as a popular co-host of the widely watched “Fox & Friends” morning chat show in late 2015, has sold the stately and colorfully appointed colonial mansion in Greenwich, Conn., she owns with her husband Tim Hasselbeck, the retired professional football player-turned-ESPN sports analyst, for slightly more than $4.56 million. And, as we first heard from the Bizzy Boys at Celebrity Address Aerial, the pair has shelled out a whisper more than $2 million for a brick-built traditional residence in a prosperous suburb of Nashville.

The slightly more than 7,600-square-foot Greenwich mansion spent eight months on the market, and the couple settled for an amount well below their almost $4.8 million asking price, but still turned a tidy profit on the property, which they picked up in May 2012 for $4.2 million. A gated drive circles up to the front of the spacious yet understated residence that opens to an entrance hall stretching clear through to the back of the house. There are marble fireplaces in both the formal living room and the mahogany-trimmed library that was boldly done up with high-gloss navy blue painted walls and a leopard-print rug. Silver wallpaper shimmers with light tossed off from a Subaru-sized crystal chandelier in the formal dining room, and the generously commodious eat-in kitchen has slab marble countertops, designer appliances, and an adjoining family room anchored by a fieldstone fireplace set between built-in bookshelves and display cabinets.

The Hasselbecks’ new home just outside of Nashville in the genteelly monied Belle Meade community, sits on a verdant acre. Listing details show the house has six bedrooms and six full and three half bathrooms in just over 7,100 square feet. The double-height foyer is flanked by a library/office and a formal dining room, while the main living room has a fireplace, and opens to both an eat-in kitchen and an ample, screened porch with a brick fireplace. A media room on the upper floor is soundproofed with cork-lined walls.

The Hasselbecks previously owned a couple of apartments on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, including a two bedroom and two bathroom property sold in 2008 for $1.6 million and a four bedroom and three bathroom spread on West 99th Street bought in April 2008 for a bit more than $3.3 million and sold at a loss in July 2012 for $3.1 million.
