They have the most insane waterfront views.

After picking up a stunning Manhattan penthouse in the summer of 2017, Rosie O’Donnell decided to edit down her impressive portfolio of properties. The comedienne and real estate aficionado listed her five-residence compound in South Nyack, New York for $10.79 million late last year—and according to Variety, the first of the stunning riverfront homes has just sold.
O’Donnell bought the homes between 2001 and 2008 for a sum total of $8.6 million, and she’s listing them at a range of $525,000 to $5.3 million. The first to go was the main house, which sold for a little under the $5.3 million asking price, at $5.1 million.
The seven-bedroom Dutch Colonial dating back to 1906 is the biggest residence, and O’Donnell’s primary home. At around 7,000 square feet, it has plenty of room for luxe amenities, including a full chef’s kitchen (complete with both an island and a breakfast bar), and a medley of outdoor water fixtures that range from a pool with a waterfall to a saltwater hot tub.
The first residence is bright and full of light, due in part to the massive floor-to-ceiling windows and high white shiplap ceilings. But a colorful, mosaic-tiled fireplace takes center stage in the combined living-dining-kitchen area, making for a slightly more eccentric feel.
Next up, another Dutch Colonial—this one listed at $2.2 million with four bedrooms—that overlooks the Hudson River. Stunning stonework includes a wraparound porch and fire pit, both with great waterfront access.
While the most impressive home is unfortunately no longer available, the other four are still on the market—so any interested buyers should act fast. Not in the market for a 2.4-acre residence on the Hudson? No worries: O’Donnell is also listing her Saddle River home in New Jersey for $5.9 million.
