The country escape that used to belong to the late, great TV host Ed Sullivan has hit the market for $460K. According to Zillow Blog, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom, 3,600-square-foot property, which was built in 1920, remained in the family well after Sullivan's 1974 death; in fact, the current owners paid $560K for the place in 2008. Features include a renovated kitchen that has retained those very same wood-beamed ceilings that originally charmed Sullivan, a large stone fireplace, slate floors, wood-paneled walls, plus 1.81 acres of verdant Southbury land. Some fun facts, courtesy of local news outlets: per the Hartford Courant, Sullivan raised cows on this land and sold $1,200 work of their milk. Even, cooler, notes the Meriden Patch: members of The Beatles, who made their glitzy debut on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, once swam in the pool.
