Dick Cavett and Martha Rogers are selling their jewel on the UWS.

The erudite talk-show host and author Dick Cavett has long had a penchant for unique and historic homes, and his newly listed apartment at the stately Kenilworth co-op building at 151 Central Park West shows why.

This prewar stunner is packed with crown molding, herringbone floors, unblemished wood-beam ceilings in a gorgeous formal dining room, and a separate wing for the three bedrooms. Oversized windows deliver city and Central Park views in all directions, making the $5.995 million price tag reasonable, especially given the building and the mint condition of the residence.

Cavett, 81, and his second wife, Martha Rogers, purchased a new home in Ridgefield, CT, last July. The $3.3 million mansion, called Sunset Hall, dates to 1912 and fits with Cavett’s affinity for historic homes. The estate at 162 Old West Mountain Road is incredible; look through the listing photos on Zillow.

Dick Cavett’s impeccable taste in real estate led him to purchase this Connecticut estate last year for $3.3 million.

The Ridgefield purchase came one month after Cavett listed Tick Hall, the famous Montauk estate that Cavett bought in 1968 and restored, only to lose in a 1997 fire. But Cavett and his first wife, actress Carrie Nye, rebuilt Tick Hall, and it’s now listed for sale for $62 million.

Dick Cavett’s Mountauk estate Tick Hall is also for sale at $62M.

So, while it might seem a bit sad that Cavett is giving up his sumptuous, 3-bedroom apartment on one of the most expensive and coveted streets in New York City, he is no stranger to sensational real estate deals. And he has already moved on quite well.
