Fox News host Bret Baier sold a Palm Beach house, after upsizing to a $37 million home on the island in August. 

Baier and his wife, Amy Baier, sold the house at 244 Fairview Road for $13.5 million, Redfin shows. The sale comes nearly two years after they bought it from designer and island real estate investor Tommy Hilfiger for $12 million. The deed has yet to be recorded publicly, and the buyer is unknown.

Christian Angle of Christian Angle Real Estate represented both sides of the deal. Angle did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the sale. 

Bret Baier is the longtime anchor of Fox News’ early evening newscast “Special Report.” He is also the channel’s chief political correspondent and co-anchor for 2024 election coverage. Baier renewed his contract with Fox early, in September, Variety reported.

The 4,200-square-foot non-waterfront Fairview Road home was built in 2021 on 0.3-acres, property records show. It has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, one half-bathroom and a pool. The Baiers listed it for $16.5 million in June, and dropped the asking price to $15.9 million in October, Redfin shows. 

In August, the Baiers bought another Palm Beach home from the wife of a Boston real estate developer for $37 million in an off-market deal. The non-waterfront house at 125 Wells Road spans 6,700 square feet, with five bedrooms, six bathrooms and one half-bathroom.

Baier isn’t the only conservative media player to own real estate in Palm Beach. Fellow Fox News host Sean Hannity bought a townhouse on the island in 2021 for $5.3 million, and won approval for an expansion in 2022. He recently announced he is moving to Florida full time, and is conducting his broadcasts from his home in Palm Beach, according to the Guardian

Fox News’ late founder, Roger Ailes, who was ousted from leadership of the company in 2016 following a bevy of sexual harassment allegations, bought a $36 million mansion in Palm Beach that year. He died on the island in 2017.

In April, cosmetics heir William Lauder bought the late conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh’s 2.7 acre oceanfront compound in Palm Beach for $155 million. Considered a teardown, Lauder began demolition of the estate in July, according to published reports.
