Maybe size doesn’t matter.

And perhaps bigger isn’t always better?

MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough is selling his multi-million dollar, Colonial-style, 7,826 square-foot house in New Canaan, Conn., where he resides with his son and daughter. The daughter will soon be going off to school, leaving the large home for just him and his son. Presumably his fiancé Mika Brzezinski spends time there, too.

Scarborough says he’s ready to downsize. The plan is to buy another house nearby.

According to a hometown rag, Scarborough is trying to sell the sprawling home. But so far things aren’t looking too good — they’ve had to lower the price at least once by $409K. The home has been on the market for 40 days.

Scarborough purchased the home for $4,600,000 in 2011.

The current asking price: $3,690,000.

Here’s some juicy details about the house: It has five bedrooms, five and a half baths, four fireplaces, a butler’s pantry and a heated pool and cabana.

A description on the Halstead Realty website reads: “Distinctive New Canaan estate on 2.6 beautifully manicured acres just one mile from the village. Thoughtful expansion and renovation allow for modern living while retaining the feel of a classic Connecticut home. Beautifully proportioned rooms make for gracious entertaining while extensive terraces invite you to the heated pool and cabana surrounded by complete privacy. A very special offering at a very compelling price.”

There’s no denying that it’s gorgeous. See the photographic evidence here.
