Roger Ailes is looking to offload his home in New Jersey. The former Fox News CEO is now asking $1.995 million for the Cresskill property, and last year parceled out a couple of homes in his twenty acre Garrison, New York compound.
The Cresskill residence dates to the nineteen-eighties, and is a ranch design. Ailes and his wife purchased the home in 2000, for $1.85 million. It was initially listed last month, with an asking price of $2.25 million.
Measuring a little over 3,500 square feet, and containing four bedrooms and 5.5 baths, the house features a ponderous brick façade and walkway, and the low-pitched roof associated with the style.
The interior of the home features the expected rambling layout, with an open-concept common living area, and a tiered floor with a step-down family room. The foyer and dining room have pocket ceilings painted with azure sky murals, and the motif is continued over the niched fireplace in the living room, and in the flanking niches. The kitchen is done in white, black and stainless, with skylights offering a little relief.
The most appealing room in the house is the solarium in the rear; the ceiling is timber-framed glass, and terra-cotta tiling helps make it a warm retreat. The property exterior features a footbridge over a small stream, and a pool, incorporated into the .9-acre lot.
Roger Ailes resigned as CEO of Fox News last July. He recently purchased a $36 million home in Palm Beach, ahead of potential sexual harassment lawsuits levied by twenty or more Fox News employees.
