A daytime talk show host will no longer be asking her Garden State neighbors “how you doin’” after finalizing the sale of her suburban home almost a year after it was listed.
Wendy Williams officially found a buyer for her Livingston home earlier this month, offloading the property for a price of $1.475 million. The house, on 0.77-acres along a quiet street, was initially listed last September for $1.9 million following news that the host was filing for divorce from now ex-husband Kevin Hunter.
The property was re-listed at $1.7 million in January and the deal was finalized on August 5. Williams, who was born in Asbury Park and graduated from Ocean Township High School, paid $2.1 million for home back in 2009.
The home’s livable space totals 8,200 square feet that includes 5,700 square feet on three floors plus another 2,500 square feet of finished basement space. The property sports five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and two half baths. Several living rooms and entertainment lounges are sprinkled throughout the house and a second-floor den boasts a massive skylight.
The home’s entryway boasts a double height foyer complete with a checkerboard marble floor, while an office space features floor-to-ceiling cherry wood bookcases. Several crystal chandeliers adorn the kitchen, which includes stainless steel appliances and a spacious island.
Other features of the home include a custom wood-burning fireplace and a master bathroom jacuzzi tub and steam shower. A four-car garage and a private backyard with a sports court, patio, and koi pond round out the home, which was built in 1999.
The house comes with a hefty tax bill of $48,726/year and was listed through Coldwell Banker’s Livingston Office. Buyers for the property have not been disclosed.
Several outlets have reported that Williams has moved into a Manhattan apartment, presumably to be closer to the New York City studio where The Wendy Williams Show is filmed. The program, which has been on the air since 2008, is set to resume shooting in late September.
