The listing of the Beachside Avenue property by Nicholas H. Fingelly Real Estate in Southport comes two months after reports that Martha Stewart had quietly put her nearby Turkey Hill Road South house on the market for $10 million. A Stewart spokewoman denied the report.

UPDATE: Donahue told The Advocate of Norwalk that he and his wife are not leaving town, the newspaper reported Thursday. “We’ll be staying right here in the neighborhood,” he said. “We’re not leaving Westport.” He spoke while talking an afternoon walk outside his home.

The Donahue-Thomas home is actually three contiguous lots—112, 114 and 116 Beachside Ave. comprising 7.7 acres. Donahue bought the adjoining property some years ago and caused some controversy when he demolished a home to improve his water views.
