The Southbury country home of iconic television variety show host Ed Sullivan is on the market for $460,000.
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.
