Regis Philbin Sells His Connecticut Estate For Half Price

Clearance! Everything must go!

Regis Philbin just unloaded his Connecticut home for about half of what he was originally asking for it. So who bought it? Andy Cohen? Rob Lowe? Mark Consuelos?

Nope, it’s Raymond LaChance. A regular dude who told The Greenwich Times that while Regis Philbin being the former owner is “kind of neat,” it didn’t influence his decision to purchase the home.

Anyway, Philbin originally listed the 4 bedroom, 6.5 bath property in 2008 for $5.8 million. And after no one wanted it, Reg kept dropping the price until he finally sold it for $3 million.

At 5,919 square feet, the home is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in the town of Greenwich. It’s surrounded by trees and greenery, and sits on six acres near a state park. It basically is a state park. The new owner can enjoy grandiose high ceilings, an opulent spiral staircase, relaxing outdoor pool and gazebo, as well as a sweet-ass patio. Sorry, I ran out of adjectives.

Philbin, 79 and his wife, Joy have another house in Greenwich, along with their Manhattan home, which is where the couple spends most of their time.

Regis’ other Greenwich home is less than six miles away, so it looks like Raymond LaChance kind of has a celebrity neighbor! Less than an hour’s drive from Manhattan, the Connecticut town of Greenwich has attracted a slew of celebrities, including David Letterman.

Regis recently retired from Live with Regis and Kelly. Now, it’s just called Live until producers and execs find a replacement.
