John Bolaris is selling his Wainscott home, according to Newsday. $2.695 million is the asking price for the five-bedroom, 4 ½-bath in Suffolk County. The paper has this description of it: "cedar-shingled, post-modern dwelling, located at the end of a cul-de-sac, has cathedral ceilings, formal living and dining rooms, media a room and a heated Gunite pool."
"It's my dream home," Bolaris told Newsday. "Growing up as a kid, I always wanted a home on the East End. We didn't have much when I was a kid. It was a goal to have a house like this. I worked really hard to get it."
"The weatherman said he will eventually buy another house south of Montauk Highway," says the paper, which mentioned that Bolaris would not comment on speculation that he will soon leave New York for Philadelphia.
Bolaris is currently CBS 2's weekend evening weatherman and also does forecasts for WCBSTV.com's "@ Your Desk" webcasts during the week.
