Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his longtime girlfriend, cookbook author and TV chef Sandra Lee, are selling their four-bedroom country home in Westchester. Lee, who recently denied rumors that the couple had split, told the New York Times that they no longer need the large house because the governor’s three daughters are now adults. The four-bedroom home in Mount Kisco sits on a tranquil three acres, which include a pond and gazebo. The pair originally listed the home at the end of May for $2 million, but it’s now received a price chop to $1,699,000, according to lohud.

Dubbed “Lily Pond,” the property is surrounded by evergreen trees and sweeping lawn, according to the listing. Lee personally decorated the home, which becomes evident when looking at the lavish details.

“Lily Pond is probably the most beautiful perfect house on this planet and that is the truth,” Lee told the Times. “It’s a family home and it should be loved and cherished by a beautiful family that deserves it.”

The living room features book-end marble fireplaces and deep window-seating. The almost all-white room also boasts built-in shelves and access to a sunken family room.

Designed by a chef and author of 25 cookbooks, the home’s kitchen feels light and airy with white cabinets and marble countertops. The walk-in pantry, large center island, and breakfast nook make this the perfect dining and entertaining spot.

The master suite seems to have been touched by Lee’s flair as well, with a similar color scheme and furniture choices as the lower level. But a darker room with a poster of Jim Morrison’s mug shot, a treadmill, and desk, may serve as some sort of gym-office hybrid for the governor.

The home’s outdoor space is a major perk, especially the spacious patio, equipped with a fireplace. Other amenities, in addition to the private pond and gazebo, include a laundry room, two-car garage, potting shed, and a detached-home workshop. It’s also located near a Metro-North train station, making it just a 45-minute ride into Grand Central Terminal.

The couple plan to split their time between New York City, Albany, and the Hamptons, a tipster told 6sqft.
