Radio firebrand Don Imus and his wife, Deirdre, have slashed the price of their Westport, Conn. estate by $5 million to “meet the market,” listing broker Darlene Letersky of Coldwell Banker told Norwalk newspaper the Hour. The four-acre beachfront estate, which includes a 10,000-square-foot main house, a guest house and a gate house, is now asking $24.95 million. If it sells, it would be among Westport’s priciest real estate transactions ever (the 2006 sale of Phil Donahue and Marlo Thomas’ 17-room mansion for $25 million currently holds that record). The Imuses, who purchased the property in 1997 for $4.6 million and rebuilt everything but the gate house from the ground up, have nonetheless been infrequent residents in recent years, opting instead to split their time between their famed Imus Ranch in Ribera, N.M. and their home in New York City, which, according to public records, is at 75 Central Park West. [The Hour]
