Tucker Carlson expands his real estate portfolio in South Florida, acquires adjacent property

Exciting news from Gasparilla Island on Florida's luxurious Gulf Coast! The prestigious Wall Street Journal once named this tropical paradise as one of the top 10 locations for owning a second home. With famous figures such as Katherine Hepburn, Harrison Ford, and George H.W. Bush owning or renting vacation homes on the low-lying barrier island, it's easy to see why. But for Tucker Carlson, Washington D.C.'s very own Fox News personality, this community is more than just a vacation spot. It's a place to call home.

In just the last few years, Carlson has made headlines by purchasing not just one, but two multimillion-dollar homes in the upscale Boca Grande community. His first purchase was an architect-designed home that he snagged for $2.9 million, nestled in lush tropical foliage. And just last summer, Carlson and his wife, Susan Andrews, acquired the home next door for a whopping $5.5 million! While few details about the property have been made public, we know that it was built in 1969, boasts three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and sits on over a quarter-acre of prime real estate.

Interestingly, Carlson closed on the purchase of this U-shaped residence around the same time he was photographed mingling with Donald Trump and firebrand Congressperson Marjorie Taylor Greene at the Saudi-funded LIV Golf Invitational at Trump's golf club in Bedminster, New York. And while Carlson's private text messages were recently revealed in court documents related to Dominion Voting Systems's just-settled defamation lawsuit against Fox News, this hasn't stopped him from continuing to expand his real estate empire.

In fact, Carlson's first Boca Grande home has undergone an extensive renovation, including the replacement of the freeform pool with a sleeker, rectangular version. Carlson and Andrews have long been based in the nation's capital, where they sold their traditional home of over 9,000 square feet for $3.95 million, just slightly more than the $3.9 million they paid in 2017.

Overall, it's clear that Carlson has an eye for prime real estate and a taste for the luxurious lifestyle. With not one, but two multimillion-dollar homes in the exclusive Boca Grande community, he has truly made his mark on the Florida Gulf Coast.
