After nearly seven years, Hank Azaria is pulling up his sticks in the pastoral and terrifically posh Bedford Corners area of New York’s mostly pretty wealthy Westchester County, hanging a $3.25 million price on his historic and relaxed semi-suburban country spread.
The versatile film, television and stage actor — he stole every scene as Agador Spartacus in the 1996 film “The Birdcage,” was nominated for a 2005 Tony for his trod across the boards in the hit Broadway musical “Monty Python’s Spamalot,” and has won a total of six Emmys, four of them for voicing characters on “The Simpsons” — paid a smudge more than $2.11 million for the mostly wooded estate that lies along a picturesque country lane about 40 miles north of New York City.
Tucked away on four beautifully bucolic acres that are largely obscured from the road by a thick stand of towering trees, the not-quite-5,400-square-foot estate includes a meticulously renovated antique farmhouse with four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, along with additional living space above a detached garage.
Listing agent Brian Milton of Compass told Westchester and Fairfield County Business Journals that Azaria was immediately drawn to the property due to the way the residence “was positioned on the land offering privacy, comfort and country views from every window.”
Built in 1890, the residence’s vintage charm was maintained and enhanced while high-tech creature comforts, such as state-of-the-art audio-video systems, were seamlessly interwoven for a moneyed though casual modern-day lifestyle.
