88-year-old veteran television talk show host Regis Philbin (“Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee/Kelly,” “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” “America’s Got Talent”) and his wife, Joy, have put their Greenwich, Connecticut home on the market for $4.595 million (h/t WSJ). The ask is a significant drop from the home’s purchase price a decade ago when the couple moved in. The 13,661-square-foot residence was built in the style of an English Manor, complete with a pool, tennis court, and a garage that holds five cars. The Philbins are selling in order to spend more time with family in California; Ms. Philbin said in a statement that “this house will always be our favorite…There was always room for everyone.”

The home, set on 2.59 manicured acres, certainly makes a fine first impression: A gated drive arrives at a grand circular court, and a step inside introduces a dramatic two-story foyer.

Elegant interior highlights include seven fireplaces, a mahogany library, and a sunroom.

In the less serious, more fun column are a ”pub room” with a full bar, a billiards room, and a home theater. Additional indulgences include a gym, a sauna, and a wine cellar.

Ready to entertain on a grand scale is a chef’s kitchen with polished marble worktops, a double center island, and classic shaker cabinetry. There’s plenty of room for dining of course, and a double-height family room with a stone fireplace is perfect for a smaller crowd. The home currently offers six bedrooms.

Surrounding the house, covered and open south-facing terraces flank a pool and spa. A fountain and tennis court add more luxury–and more options for friendly competition. On a more low-key note, garden walkways meander among beautiful plantings. There is a one-bedroom guest house on the property with a kitchen, full bath, and loft. A garage has space for your car collection (provided you haven’t collected more than five cars).

This country manor masterpiece is 40 miles from New York City near a golf course and an equestrian property. Though Greenwich was seen as the ultimate trophy town in the mid- and late-20th century, demographics have shifted with the 21st, and the still-wealthy enclave is struggling to land the kind of high-rolling buyers that might now stay in the city or move to a locale with lower property taxes.
