Newscaster Tom Brokaw’s 56-acre estate in Pound Ridge, N.Y., has hit the market, asking $6.3 million.

The family compound, which sits on the edge of a private lake, includes a 4,000-square-foot main house, plus a pool house and caretaker’s cottage. The NBC legend bought the estate at 43 South Bedford Road his wife, Meredith Auld, for around $4.25 million in 1998, according to property records.

Located about 50 miles north of Manhattan, the property has ample hiking trails and a swimming pool that’s steps from the lake. The compound also includes two fully-approved subdivisions that could accommodate two additional houses.

“This is an exceptional retreat,” said Brown Harris StevensKathy Sloane, who has a co-exclusive with Westchester agent Muffin Dowdle of Ginnel Real Estate.

According to the listing, the stucco-and-shingle house has four bedrooms and six baths, as well as a great room with a vaulted ceiling.

“The dining room and living room — as well as the master bedroom and several guest rooms — have beautiful views of the lake, which is the central focus of the property,” Sloane said.

Brokaw and Auld, who are longtime Manhattan residents, also own a ranch in Montana that’s on the market for $17.9 million.

Brokaw was accused in April of sexually harassing two women. He has adamantly denied the allegations.
