Andrew Cuomo and Sandra Lee sell longtime house before scandal

Andrew Cuomo and Sandra Lee have unloaded their longtime Mount Kisco, NY home right before the governor was hit with controversy.

The former pair initially listed the Westchester County property in May 2019 for $2,000,000. They eventually sold the home on Dec. 23 2020 for $1.85 million.

Cuomo, 63, and Lee, 54, purchased the house in 2008 and lived there for years until they called it quits in 2019.

The four-bedroom, six-bathroom home spent over a year on the market before eventually finding a buyer. One broker previously told The Post that the home was in dire need of considerable work.

“It’s absolutely charming,” one broker revealed. “But it needs a lot of work on the inside.”

The home sits on 2.89 acres and comes with a gazebo, a creek and a pond. realtor.com

Initially built in 1950, the property spans 4,129 square feet and sits on a massive 2.89 acres of land.

The home features an idyllic rolling lawn, a gazebo, a creek and a pond.

The home is located minutes from downtown Chappaqua, Bedford and Mount Kisco and is only a 67-minute train ride to Grand Central Station.

Features of the home include a stately living room, a sun-filled family room, an oversized kitchen and three dining areas.

Other amenities include a finished renovated basement, a master with en-suite, a home gym and home office.

The gov and the celeb chef announced their separation on September 25, 2019, after 14 years of dating.

“Over the recent past, we have realized that our lives have gone in different directions and our romantic relationship has turned into a deep friendship,” they said in a joint statement at the time. “We will always be family and are fully supportive of each other and dedicated to the girls,” referring to Cuomo’s three daughters from his marriage to Kerry Kennedy.

Cuomo has been involved in a series of damning sexual harassment allegations. Several women have come forward to accuse the governor of inappropriate behavior, which he has claimed was just “joking.”

In a press conference on Wednesday, Cuomo said that he feels “awful” about the sexual harassment allegations against him but insisted, “I never touched anyone inappropriately.”

“I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable,” he added.

“It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it,” he said as his voice choked up. “I feel awful about it and frankly I am embarrassed by it and that’s not easy to say –but that’s the truth.”

The claims have led to a call for his resignation and an independent investigation by the New York Attorney General.

The sexual harassment allegations follow the nursing home debacle, when a top aide, Melissa DeRosa, privately apologized to Democratic lawmakers for withholding the state’s nursing home death toll from COVID-19.
