Comedian Jon Stewart appears to have ended his time as a Red Bank dual homeowner.
The comedian and political commentator has a buyer for the second of the two side-by-side mansions on the Navesink River that he and his wife, Tracey Stewart, owned in town, according to a recent filing with the Monmouth County Clerk.
A notice of settlement filed October 1, indicates a contract for the second house, at 55 Fisher Place. No price is stated. [UPDATE: A deed dated October 8 and filed with the county put the price at $3.7 million.]
The Stewarts owned the property through an entity called Red Bank River Trust; the buyers are identified as Peter and Rae Glazman of Bal Harbour, Florida.
The two houses are side-by-side at the ends of parallel streets. They represented a combined $7 million investment, before improvements, the Stewarts made in late 2009 and early 2010. It’s unknown how much the Stewarts, who own the 11-acre Hockhockson Farm in Colts Neck, used either place.
Stewart hosts a new current affairs show, called “The Problem with Jon Stewart,” on Apple TV+. On Friday, he is scheduled to host Red Bank-based Lunch Break’s annual fall fundraising gala at the Count Basie Center for the Arts.
