Is Sean Hannity Saying Bye-Bye To New York

SELLER: Sean and Jill Hannity
LOCATION: Lloyd Neck, NY
PRICE: $3,600,000
SIZE: 4,824 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 5 full and 1 half bathroom

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Soon after democratic governor Andrew Cuomo told some political reporter or another that extreme, right-wing conservatives have no place in the state of New York arch-conservative radio and t.v. political pundit Sean Hannity publicly stated he planned to vacate the state and, true to his word, it looks as if he might actually put that pedal to the metal and has hoisted one of his two traditional family-friendly estates on Long Island on the open market with an asking price of $3.6 million.*

Property records show Mister Hannity and his long-time missus Jill—who, since 2008, have lived in a larger and much more expensive mansion in nearby Centre Island—purchased the gated 2.05 acre spread in Lloyd Neck back in July 2003 for $3,450,000. According to listing details and the Suffolk County Tax Man their annual property taxes are $56,989, a lot of money certainly but a pittance to a man who, back in 2012, reportedly rakes in somewhere in the neighborhood of $30 million per year.

Listing details describe the two-story 4,824 square foot residence as a "Brick Colonial" that was built in 2001 with four bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, six fireplaces, and a basement level three-car garage. Listing photographs reveal a massive, marble-floored double-height foyer and arched windows, a marble-floored great room with wet bar and head on water views, a wood-floored formal dining rooms (with Chippendale-esque furnishings and funeral parlor-style drapery), and a wood-floored den (barely furnished with an olive drab velveteen sectional sofa).

The kitchen is certainly upgraded with upper-end stainless steel appliances but it's also perfectly ordinary in an upper middle class way with marble tile floors, ubiquitous high-gloss black granite counter tops, and no doubt custom but painfully ho-hum antique white raised panel cabinetry. At least a couple of the upstairs bedrooms—including the master suite, open to a deck that overlooks the gunite swimming pool and harbor.

Back in May 2008 the three-time New York Times best seller author shelled out $8.5 million for a 11,000-plus square foot mansion (above) on nearly six, water front acres in fancy-schmancy Centre Island with seven bedrooms, 7.5  bathrooms, seven fireplaces, a swimming pool, tennis court, and about 500 fee of direct frontage on West Harbor. As far as Your Mama's research shows the Hannity's house in Centre Island is not listed on the open market but if he's being straight about leaving New York it should be soon, right?

*Mister Hannity, who was born in New York state, says he'd like to move to a state with a less onerous tax structure like Texas or Florida and if he does decide to decamp to a southern state Your Mama is quite certain a giddy army of lefty-libs would be thrilled to volunteer their time to help the Hannity family pack up their Long Island belongings and cheer them on as they drove away to Florida or Texas or wherever. Anyways...

Look at the tax bill and anyone can figure out why he wants to get out of NY. And the backs of those that can support those who cant are breaking. And if that doesnt convince you, look at his old (3+ Million????) and the new one.

That tax bill is really not high, especially for a man making $10+ Million per year. If he is leaving New York, it's probably for other reasons. I live in Lloyd Neck (which is where this house is located, it's not in Lloyd Harbor) and this tax bill is relatively low for the area. If the taxes were too high he wouldn't have bought that house or the other from the beginning. Idiot.

How come so many people never seem to tire of hearing rich people whine about how the taxes on their 3.5 and 8.5 million dollar houses are too high? Give me a break. I don't begrudge anyone their wealth and I'm sure I'm sure I'll be called a communist or some other stupid thing for saying this but it's annoying to hear these people cry poverty and indignation over taxes from their 8.5 million dollar water front estates.

Shut up, Sean. Your mascara is running, you little cry baby.

Momma, just because you are gay does not mean you have to be vengeful and ignorant. Just saying.

Go Sean, we'll help you move. You and Limbaugh show the same lame taste. Who the F*** does your decorating? Where's the "velvet elvis" you tool.

Look at the redneck neo-con coming to his defense. Too bad the multi- millionaire could care less about you and your redneck buddies. They have done their job propagating their hate.

Good for Sean. NY is for losers and liberals. Big spending, out of control unions, and big taxes. Yet the losers living in the state do nothing about it

Why didn't he sell it when he bought the Centre Island house? Lloyd Neck and Centre Island are right across the harbor from one another. I suspect the credit market collapse and slowness in the real estate market were the reasons. The Centre Island house was a good buy - less than the prior owners paid to buy the land and build the new house.

All you people who want to "help him pack" etc.... Better hope there's someone to take his place, or you're all going to be splitting a) that enormous property tax bill and b) the income tax that he provided New York State. Not to mention whoever he employed here could be out of a job...

I looked at beautiful NY state 11 years ago after selling CA property at the height of the RE bubble. Cost of living, not only property taxes, was outrageous in NY, so decided to settle in Tennessee. Plenty of other locations with beautiful scenery and great people in these 50 United States.

New York is now advertising on television for businesses to "come back" as they "made a mistake"...and "we will give you 10 years of tax breaks"...lol.....good luck NY.
