Ed Sullivan was king of primetime television for over 20 years with his variety show The Ed Sullivan Show. With the longest running variety show in U.S. history. Ed Sullivan is best known for bring up and coming stars into people’s homes every Sunday night. With famous artists like The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, The Doors and The Rolling Stones, making their debut on the show, Sullivan was known as the Star Maker.

Now there is another Really Big Shew-ing, Sullivan’s Southbury, CT weekend home has just been put on the market by the current owners. The 3,600 square foot home was built in 1920 and is situated on almost 2 acres of land in the Connecticut countryside.

The 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home at 367 N Georges Hill Rd, remained in the Sullivan family after his death in 1974 until it was sold in 2008 for $520,000, which makes today’s asking price of $460,000 a deal for the purchase of a piece of history.

The home’s features include the same wood-beamed ceilings that graced the home when Sullivan lived in it, a large two stone fireplaces, slate floors, a master bedroom on both floors and several windows. The land contains a swimming pool, where the members of The Beatles, who made their famous debut on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, once swam. Another fact that people may not be aware of is that Sullivan also took advantage of his country estate by keeping Guernsey and Holstein cows on his farm and selling the milk.

Sullivan’s Connecticut home was also featured in the 1956 edition of American Home, which has pictures of Sullivan and his wife at the home. The home still holds a lot of the rustic charm that first attracted Sullivan to it.
