With a $25 million price tag, the home being put up for sale by Phil Donahue and his actress-wife, Marlo Thomas, is most definitely upscale.

The 7,379-square-foot 1911 wood-and-stucco Tudor house has 17 rooms, including nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms and five fireplaces. It also has a guesthouse.

As an added attraction, neighbors include radio talk-show host Don Imus and movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

But Donahue says he and Thomas aren’t pulling up stakes.

“We’ll be staying right here in the neighborhood,” Donahue told The Advocate of Stamford Wednesday. “We’re not leaving Westport.”

The estate is listed with Nicholas H. Fingelly Real Estate and rests on three lots that comprise 7.7 acres. Donahue bought the adjoining properties years ago and demolished a home to improve his Long Island Sound view.

Donahue, 69, is an Emmy Award winner for his syndicated talk show, which began in 1967 and aired nationally from 1970 to 1996. Thomas, 67, starred in the ’60s TV series “That Girl” and had a recurring role on “Friends.”

The couple celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary in May.
