Sullivan died in 1974, three years after his long-running variety show was canceled. But the 3,562-square-foot North Georges Hill Road home remained in his family until four years ago when it was bought by the current owners, according to JoAnn Bredenberg, of Coldwell Banker in Southbury, who has the listing.

The 4-bedroom, 3-bath house on two acres was once part of a much larger estate where Sullivan raised a herd of Guernsey and Holstein cows. Sullivan sold $1,200 worth of milk, according to a 1956 edition of “American Home.”

The estate was subdivided, and a barn was converted to a home, Bredenberg said.

Bredenberg said the 1920 Colonial, on the market for about three months, retains many of the original features from when Sullivan lived there. The features include slate and wide-board floors.

The asking price has been reduced from the original $480,000.

      Lived next door to this houses for many years. The property even had a bomb shelter on it that we used as our clubhouse as kids. Don’t know where the agent got some of her information but some of it is wrong. He purchased home from Arlene Francis of “what’s my line fame”.
      He lived there for a number of years. Then he lost ownership of the home gambling in Las Vegas. House had various owners after that which were not family members. Even was a private school for a short time. Property was divided up and some buildings were converted into houses. Others built on the land like our house.
