Sean Hannity has left the Island, and his North Shore mansion in the Town of Oyster Bay is now up for sale.

The real estate brokerage Nest Seekers International has listed the 5.76-acre waterfront estate in Centre Island for $13.75 million. Fox News commentator Hannity, 62, has moved to Florida, where records show he has a home in West Palm Beach.

The property's listing agent, Shawn Elliott, president of Nest Seekers' "Ultra Luxury Division," said he dealt directly with Hannity.

"I talked to him myself," Elliott told Newsday. Elliott was unsure when Hannity had moved, but noted, "He's moved out and there are caretakers" and security personnel overseeing the home.

The 10,674-square-foot Colonial, built in 2005, is situated between the Long Island Sound and Oyster Bay, and boasts what the listing says is 500 feet of bay frontage and an 81-foot private dock. The home's seven bedrooms each have an ensuite bath, and there are two additional half-baths. In the kitchen are marble countertops and "a professional-grade gas range," the listing said, with an adjacent breakfast nook.

In addition to a living room and dining room, there are a den/family room, an exercise room, a wet bar and a three-car garage. The grounds include a swimming pool, a tennis court and a par 3 golf course.

"It's got six different tee boxes and a putting green and [a] pickleball [court]," Elliott said. "Only a few homes on the Island actually have a deep-water dock," as this property does, he added.

The home has its own website, plus a 90-second promotional video on Elliott's Instagram.

Hannity, who was born in New York City and raised in Franklin Square, has not commented on the listing. On his radio show Jan. 2, he confirmed that because he found New York State income tax too burdensome, he decamped for the Sunshine State.

"I've been threatening now to do this for quite a while," he said on air. "But we are now beginning our first broadcast from my new home" in Florida. "I am out. I am done. I'm finished." As long ago as his Jan. 20, 2014, radio show, he said. "I can't wait to get out of here. I really can't. I don't want to pay their 10% state tax anymore."

He also said that, in 2014, he objected to the property taxes on his Nassau County homes, including one in Lloyd Harbor that he put up for sale for $3.6 million in 2012. His Centre Island property has annual taxes of $146,217, per the listing. According to Forbes, Hannity earned roughly $43 million from mid-2019 to mid-2020, through a $25 million salary with Fox News and income from his Premiere Networks radio show, book deals and other ventures.

Growing up on Long Island, the youngest of four siblings and the only son of first-generation Irish immigrants, Hannity attended Sacred Heart Seminary in Hempstead, followed by Uniondale's Saint Pius X Preparatory Seminary, which closed in 1984. He went on to New York University and Adelphi University, in Garden City, but did not complete a college degree.

He helped launch Fox News Channel in 1996 with the public-affairs debate show "Hannity & Colmes," co-hosted by Lynbrook-raised Alan Colmes. It ran through 2008, the year Hannity and his family moved to Centre Island. The solo show "Hannity" debuted in 2009.
