Tucker Carlson Sells D.C. Digs, Snags Florida Hideaway

Tucker Carlson House
location: Washington, D.C.
price: $3.95 million
size: (approx.) 7,400 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms

Fox News political commentator Tucker Carlson has sold his handsome home in Washington, D.C.’s leafy and affluent Kent neighborhood for $3.95 million after he scooped up a $2.9 million home hidden down a private lane amid riotous tropical foliage on a tiny barrier island off Florida’s Gulf Coast. The frozen food heir turned paleoconservative firebrand pundit, currently on vacation after Blake Neff, head writer of his popular nightly show (“Tucker Carlson Tonight”), resigned when a trove of racist internet posts were uncovered, didn’t realize much profit on the D.C. residence he and his wife Susan bought almost exactly three years ago for $3.895 million. In late 2018, a group of about 20 anti-fascist protestors gathered in front of the home in an aggressive protest that was broken up by police and condemned by many of Carlson’s supporters and detractors alike.

Listings held by Nancy Taylor Bubes at Washington Fine Properties show the approximately 7,400-square foot, stone-built abode has five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. Other notable features include generous formal entertaining spaces with ten-foot-high ceilings. Arranged around a large island, the high-end gourmet kitchen flows into an informal dining area and family room, the latter with a raised-hearth stone fireplace and both with transom-topped glass doors to the backyard. A finished basement includes a family room, a staff/guest bedroom and a gym, while the upper floor offers four en suite guest bedrooms plus a master suite complete with vaulted ceilings, two walk-in closets and a spacious bathroom. The quarter-acre property’s landscaped backyard comes with a stone-paved covered patio that looks out over a tree-shaded stretch of lawn, a swimming pool, an outdoor shower and a sauna.

It’s not clear if the “Dancing with the Stars” alum plans to (or has already) put down new roots in the nation’s capital. But, at least as long as he doesn’t mind the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak that is sweeping across the state, he can always retreat to his recently acquired hideaway in an upscale community on Florida’s Gasparilla Island. Tax records show Carlson, who sold his 1/3 stake in The Daily Caller for an undisclosed amount in June (2020) to the conservative news and opinion site’s co-founder Neil Patel, purchased the late 1960s residence earlier this year for $2.9 million. Marketing materials and other online resources indicate the roughly 3,000-square-foot single-level dwelling was designed by pioneering Sarasota modernist architect Ralph Twitchell and features elegant terrazzo floors and plenty of pecky cypress wood paneling. The main house, which spills out to a lushly planted courtyard dining terrace, has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, while a poolside guesthouse adds another bedroom and bathroom.

      I love Florida and I can understand Tucker and family wanting a home there. He loves to fish I think and he can have the best of varied fishing spots to drop his line in there. I wish them many happy years there, part-time or full-time!

    Tucker moved his family because the media gave out his address and has been harassed for years. He is worried for his wife and kids! Stay safe Tucker!!!

        his misconduct was mentioning to a woman that he was staying at a hotel that night and his wife and kids were not with him. didn’t lay a hand on anyone or offer any quid pro quo for sex.

    Tucker Carlson has a very interesting program. He started out with Eric Wemple and that other guy from the Post? plus Tucker even had Schiff on about three years ago.Tucker Carlson will take a risk and have freaky guests on, and he is not like O’Reilly, Carlson generally lets his guests reply in full sentences.It really is beyond the pale to publicize his address, yeah he has money, yeah he has a pool but does he have his initials bricked in at the bottom? Come on, all these guys on TV are decamillionaires(but not billionaires) however it should be frowned upon, this address doxing, so meth heads can terrorize Tucker’s wife.Tucker provides an alternative viewpoint to the approved catechism we hear from other sources. Let him speak, he has a good show.

    Tucker and Family, I watch your show every night. I did not know anything about you being terrorized for years until you mentioned it on one of your shows last week. You said you never talk about yourself. That is so true but I am glad you said you moved and that The NY Toilet Paper Times was going to post your new address. Shame on them!!!!! I feel too for your wife who was in a closet when Antifa came into your home to terrorize your family. I want you to know that I have been praying for the Carlson Family and will continue praying. Welcome to FL. I live here too. Blessings 🙏✝️❤😎‼‼‼
