Michael Strahan, who has been doing swimmingly on daytime TV since he replaced Regis Philbin as "Live!" co-host, has one less place near the water now. His town house in Hermosa Beach has sold for $1.725 million.


The former NFL superstar and Fox football analyst had listed the custom walk-street home in August at $1.849 million.

A block from the beach, the 2,560-square-foot two-story house features dual living rooms, an elevator, a rooftop deck, two master bedroom suites, another bedroom and four bathrooms.

Strahan, 40, has boosted ratings since his arrival this fall on "Live! With Kelly and Michael," which he co-hosts with Kelly Ripa. The defensive end played for the New York Giants his entire NFL career, setting a record for sacks in a single season and retiring in 2008 after the Giants won Super Bowl XLII.

Public records show Strahan bought the Hermosa Beach property in 2005 for $2.2 million.

Lee LeGrande of NW Real Estate Brokers was the listing agent.
