Diane Sawyer Lists Martha’s Vineyard Home for $24M

Published: September 7, 2023 | By: American Luxury Staff

Noted news anchor Diane Sawyer recently listed her storied Martha’s Vineyard estate—dubbed Chip Chop—for $24 million, bidding farewell to the approximately 20-acre retreat she shared with late husband Mike Nichols. Purchased in 1995 for $5.3 million, the shingled sanctuary gazing seaward stretches along prime Vineyard Sound shoreline, its mile of private beaches and timeless main house granting access to a glittering legacy.

Designed by noted architect Eric Gugler, the New England-style main residence hosted theater royalty before Sawyer—it was built in 1936 for Broadway star Katharine Cornell. Two detached suites accommodate guests, while a pool, Har-Tru tennis court, and caretaker’s cottage complete the amenities.

Chip Chop’s storied history echoes with gatherings of cultural icons past and present. Since the 1940s, its sands have welcomed legends of stage, screen, politics and letters united by location and stature. Now, after decades as Sawyer’s personal sanctuary, this peerless 20-acre haven seeks a new steward to carry its rich heritage forward.

From anchoring ABC’s World News to pioneering female journalism, Sawyer is an icon of news broadcasting. With Chip Chop’s listing, she cedes stewardship of her own storied retreat, its price transcending property alone.
