Talker Regis Philbin and his wife have placed their four-bedroom, 5,919-square-foot house in Greenwich, Conn. on the market for $5,400,000.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on Philbin’s listing of his longtime brick Colonial-style house in Greenwich, which he has owned since 1992.
Indeed, while there has been chatter on Regis’ own show that he’s selling his Greenwich house, no details on the listing have emerged among any celebrity real estate gossips — until now. So far, all that we’ve been able to learn is that Regis is moving to another house somewhere in Connecticut; public records don’t yet show the evidence of a purchase by Regis, however.
Built in 1980, Regis’ two-story house sits on a 5.68-acre parcel, according to public records. The house, which was featured in 2002 in Architectural Digest, has five full baths, three half baths, a formal dining room, a two-sided fireplace that separates the paneled living and media rooms, a library with a wet bar, a family room, a gourmet kitchen with professional appliances and a custom tiled island, and a breakfast area that opens to a covered terrace, according to listing information. The master suite has a sitting area, fireplace and his and hers baths, while the lower level has a recreation area and an exercise area, according to listing information. Outdoor features include a tennis court, a pool, a gazebo and lush gardens, according to listing information.
Regis purchased the house in 1992 from sportscaster Warner Wolf for $2,500,000, according to public records. He famously told bankrate.com earlier this year that his purchase of the house was the single most “extravagant” thing that he’s ever done.

Regis continues to own a 51st-floor condo unit in the Millennium Tower in Manhattan, which he purchased in early 2001 for $1,200,000.
