Keep your eyes peeled for comedian Louis C.K. at Pridwin cookouts this summer.

The funnyman purchased a charming Shelter Island cottage, nicknamed Primrose and once lived in by Babe Ruth, last week, sources tell the New York Post. (Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story said Ruth owned the home.)

The six bedroom, 3.5 bathroom waterfront estate on Westmoreland Drive sold for $2.4 million on May 20, according to real estate listing site MLSLI.com

The three-story house also has six fireplaces, wood floors, a wine cellar, a screened porch, cedar closets and dock rights.

C.K. plans to restore the Tudor-style home, originally built around 1901 for President William McKinley and his paramour, a source told Newsday.

A representative from Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty, which listed the property, declined to comment on the sale.
