Longtime co-host of “The View,” Joy Behar has bought herself a pretty and historic mansion in Sag Harbor for $4.75 million. Sadly, judging at the listing photographs, the house itself does not seem to have a view.


It is, however, within walking distance to the Bay Street Theater, a regional theater which Behar sits on the board of. It also has an absolutely fabulous garden and a heated gunite pool on .65 acres of land. The historic 4,500-square-foot home — that according to the listing, “[evokes] days of whalers and simpler times” — has four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, two grand staircases and a separate back cottage, with its own kitchen and living space.


Behar was a cohost on “The View” from 1997 until 2013, when she kind of retired (though she made regular guest appearances). In 2015, she announced that she would be returning to the show full-time, saying to Dan’s Papers “Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in,” adding, “I’m happy to be back home.” [Realtor.Com]
