Fox News host Greta Van Susteren has finally unloaded her historic Annapolis, MD, house for almost a million bucks less than its original asking price.The Georgian-style brick house sold in March for $1.05 million, a dramatic plunge from its $1.95 million price in April 2014.
The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home was built in 1776 and stands around the corner from the Maryland governor's mansion in Annapolis' historic district. Known as the Griffith Worthington House, it was once owned by the Worthingtons, one of Maryland's oldest and most prominent families.
The home features such architectural details as hefty crown molding, chair rails, and exquisite mantels. Fireplaces warm the master bedroom and living rooms; and a courtyard provides outdoor entertainment space.
But old houses aren't for everybody, which explains its price slash.
"It's hard to find people who want that type of vintage home," says Martha Witte Suss of Long & Foster of the Eastern Shore, which represented the house. Kathleen Coale was the listing agent.
"It's certainly a showpiece," Suss told us, "but it's a niche market of people who want to spend the money to maintain a home like that."
The Washington Post says Van Susteren and her husband, trial lawyer John P. Coale, bought the home in 2010 for $1.76 million. The home's new owners are known only as 1756 Partners LLC.
