She disclosed the sale of the 1805 farmhouse during an appearance Sunday night at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan.

“I collect houses like other people collect paintings,” she said, according to the newspaper. “I finally did sell my (Westport house) last week. I was very depressed after I signed the contracts and had to go home and go to sleep.”

Stewart did not disclose the sale price, and the Town Clerk’s office said today the sale had not yet been recorded in its books.

Stewart put the home on the market last year for $9 million. (See WestportNow May 25, 2006)

In February, after it went unsold, the house and 2 acres were offered at $4.5 million with the option of buying the remaining 2 acres, which also included a renovated “party barn.”

Listing agent Susan Warburg at William Raveis Realty in Westport said the buyer purchased both parcels.

The listing for the home said it has three bedrooms, two baths, is 3,168-square feet and sits on 4.03 acres.

The property’s amenities include central air conditioning, a swimming pool, zoned temperature control, skylights, walk-in closets, a wet bar, a privacy fence, a barn, and a guest house.

Stewart lived in the home for more than 25 years until she went to prison in 2005. She later served her house arrest in her estate in Bedford, N.Y. While she was in prison, her mother lived in the Westport home.
