Longtime TV news host Tom Brokaw has listed his retreat in Pound Ridge, N.Y., for sale at $6.3 million.
Set at the edge of a five-acre lake, the European-inspired country house has a stucco and shingle facade. Interior treatments include Venetian plaster walls, exposed beams and wide-plank pine floors.
A great room with vaulted ceilings, a loft library, four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms are within the 4,068 square feet of living space. Doors off the great room, which features a stone fireplace, open to a screened porch that overlooks the water.
There’s a swimming pool with a pool house and sleeping loft, a three-car garage, a guest/caretaker’s cottage and a dock on the more than 55-acre partially wooded site. The house was built in 1996.
Brokaw, 78, anchored the “NBC Nightly News” from 1982 to 2004, becoming a fixture on American television. He also hosted “Today” and “Meet the Press,” and still serves from time to time as an NBC special correspondent.
