Mika Brzezinski Puts Manhattan Home Up for Sale for $2 Million

MSNBC morning show anchor Mika Brzezinski has put her seven-bedroom home in a wealthy Manhattan suburb on the market after her divorce.

Brzezinski and then-husband James Hoffer picked up the 4,102-square-foot, Tudor-style home in Bronxville in 2012 for $1.9 million. They’ve listed the house for $2.09 million.

The home, which was built in 1915, is located on a tree-lined street with other large, classic homes. A winding front walk leads to a well-manicured, landscaped front yard. There are hardwood floors throughout the three-story house, which retains much of its original character.

On the main level, there’s a formal living room with fireplace, dining room, and family room with north-facing windows that stretch to the second floor. Just off the family room is a reading nook with built-in window seating and open, built-in shelving. Interestingly, the listing photo of the reading nook shows several copies of Brzezinski’s 2009 memoir, “All Things at Once,” on the shelves.

SOURFrench doors open to a screened patio. The home’s updated kitchen has white cabinets and stainless-steel appliances. The bedrooms each have period-appropriate details, including one with built-in drawers and a desk. The home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms on the second floor, and an additional three bedrooms and another bath on the third floor.

It’s located on a third of an acre, within walking distance of the village of Bronxville and the Metro North train line, which takes less than 40 minutes to get into Grand Central Station.

Brzezinski, 49, currently co-hosts “Morning Joe” with Joe Scarborough. Her father is a political scientist who served Presidents Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter. She entered journalism in the early 1990s and joined MSNBC in 2007.

That year, she made headlines after refusing to read a story about Paris Hilton, saying there were more important things to cover in that day’s news. On air, she tried to burn the story, ripped it up instead, and then shredded another copy the producers gave her.

She and Hoffer divorced in 2016 after 22 years of marriage, People reports. They have two teenage daughters.
