Anderson Cooper, the CNN anchor and talk show host, has shelled out $1.7million for his third upscale home in New York — and he doesn’t even plan to live in this one.

Mr Cooper bought the house next door to his own estate in Quogue, near the Hamptons on Long Island, so that no one would tear it down to replace it with a ‘McMansion,’ according to reports.

The home, with four bedrooms on 2.4 acres along Aspatuck Creek, once belonged to Oscar-winning screenwriter Budd Schulberg who wrote On The Waterfront.

The house was once priced at $3.5million, but was most recently listed on the market for $2.25million.

Mr Cooper’s new purchase is blessed with 3,654 square feet, two fireplaces, a billiard room and a slate patio.

A garage with an office as well as a pool and a pool house are also located on the wooded property.

Mr Cooper paid $1.7million for the 1946 home because he did not want to see new neighbors move in only to tear it down, the New York Post reported.

This is not the first big purchase for the globe-trotting newsman. In September 2009, he paid $4.3million for an old firehouse in New York City’s West Village.
