Talley, a North Carolina native, wasn’t a huge fan of the city life and opted for the suburban home he called his “sanctuary,” according to a profile written by the New York Times in 2018. Trustee of Talley’s estate, Alexis E. Thomas, said the home was perfect for him.

“His porch became a place where he spent a lot of time, particularly in warmer weather. He conducted interviews from there, and he would Zoom from there,” Thomas said. “I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent with him on that porch.”

According to Mansion Global, the house holds has formal living and dining rooms including a fireplace and large windows, presenting gorgeous natural light from the manicured lawn. The wood-and-brick kitchen would be perfect for any food enthusiast with two ovens and a windowed “breakfast nook” leading to an outside deck. Upstairs, the master-bedroom has a sitting area, another fireplace, office with view of the trees and a walk-in closet.

While most of Talley’s possessions were auctioned off for $3.5 million after his 2022 death, the house still has a little bit of his taste left behind. There is an estimated $10,000 worth of leopard-print carpeting that pave the stairwell and some sections of the second floor. Talley lived there for almost 20 years.
