Just 17 miles from Manhattan sits this palatial home - a Cedar Grove, NJ mansion that marries art with luxury for an exceptional living experience.
Classically styled - from the marble foyer to the trompe l'oeil ceilings - this French Chateau is 24,000 square feet of pure magnificence, located in the friendly confines of an upscale New Jersey suburb. Nestled on nearly four acres of perfectly maintained grounds, this home offers four levels of luxurious living in an elegant space. In addition to the stunning interior, the house boasts a pool house, tennis courts, courtyard fountain, 4 car garage, and spectacular views of the Watchung mountains and New York City.
Everything about this home is designed to evoke warmth and comfort. Marble and Parquet flooring, classic architectural details, soaring ceilings, the latest and finest in technology and appliances - this home welcomes you with its Old World charm.
As you enter through hand-carved mahogany grand palace doors, step into the wonder that is the reception hall. 22-foot ceilings, a central dome with gorgeous hand-painted mural, all framed by a magnificent chandelier - right away, you will already know you have arrived in a one-of-a-kind home.
There is no end to the delights this Cedar Grove mansion has to offer; the state-of-the-art gourmet kitchen is filled with the latest appliances and beautifully appointed granite countertops. Gourmets and foodies alike will welcome the chance to utilize this warm space. Large windows frame the high ceilings and flood the room with natural light. You'll enjoy meals in the large breakfast area, and find household management easy to handle in the adjoining planning office. A powder room adds a convenient touch to the space.
Entertaining guests and celebrating special occasions will be a pleasure in the formal dining room, featuring ample room for seating, ornate lighting fixtures and a hand-painted ceiling.
The first floor is rounded out with the first of eight guest suites, his and her offices, music hall, solarium and a stunning family room. The latter offers soaring floor to ceiling windows and a breathtaking chandelier. This is luxurious comfort at its finest.
Up on the second floor, the master bedroom wing is the ultimate retreat, offering a five star hotel feel right in your own home. Spacious his and her closets, plus extra storage space frame the impressive sleeping area. The painted ceiling highlights the clean and classic lines, cloaking the suite in elegance.
The two baths are spa-quality, with whirlpool baths and European style vanities. Four large bedrooms with adjoining marble baths complete the second floor, with extensive closet space and a convenient utility room with wash and dryer.
Down to the lower level and you will find a host of rest and recreation options. Work out in the up-to-date gym, relax in the peaceful yoga room, then spend quality time in the sauna or steam room. The game room has plenty of seating space for entertaining and relaxing, whether around the fireplace or large screen television.
Then enjoy the centerpiece of the space - the antique bar, originally housed in an old London pub then dismantled and rebuilt in this exceptional mansion. The stained glass highlighting the beautiful craftsmanship of the bar is also antique and frames the space beautifully.
Entertain friends in the state-of-the-art movie theatre, with reclining seats for 16. Two more bedrooms, with adjoining bathrooms, and a sumptuous wood-paneled living room add to the functionality and luxury of the lower floor.
The third level gives you ample space for storage, as well as an expanded family room with rooftop access. Every room of this Cedar Grove mansion is designed to welcome, every detail crafted for the owner's comfort.
The nearly four acres surrounding this classic mansion continue the luxury. Framed by impressive views of the Watchung Mountains, the in-ground pool and hot tub are private and perfect for relaxing and entertaining.
Down the pathway, you'll find an expansive wood deck, with more to-die-for views. Elegant pavers lead to exquisite gardens and a quaint pond with a bench tucked away for quiet reflection and meditation.
This classic French Chalet is the best in luxury living both inside and out. Past the property lines you'll discover a wonderful suburb, called Beautiful Suburbia by the Star Ledger (January 18, 2002) - with beautiful parks, recreation areas, and a Norman Rockwell charm on every street. Located near major roadways and just 17 miles from New York City, this Cedar Grove mansion is the epitome of convenient for commuters and those seeking culture and shopping.
