Holy man cave, Batman! Super-elegant home is a stunner (PHOTOS)
If you've got $2.85 million and are looking for a place where you can really stretch out, we've got the home for you.
This elegant home in Franklin Lakes features one seriously upscale man cave. Seriously. Take a look. We spot dark wood tones everywhere, a side bar, a billiards table, display cases for jeresys, a generously sized built-in television space, a fireplace — it's a sight to see.
Frankly, it's not our style of decor. We'd have gone with wall-to-wall classic video game machines, a foosball table and an Enterprise captain's chair set dead-center. But, hey, to each his (or her) own. There's no doubting it's impressive.
The home overall is quite a sight — with five beds and 6.5 baths in 7,250 square feet on about an acre. The architecture is dramatic, it's got a very private-looking backyard (currently set up with an outdoor TV and fireplace for a sitting area), there's a New England cut-stone veneer, and a Mahogany custom library and office.
The home last sold just six years ago for $940,000. Now it's being listed for $2.85 million — down from a listing back in April of $3.5. We've featured homes that cost less than the difference of the initial asking price and the current one.
So you'd better be a big spender if you're taking a look. According to Zillow, property taxes for 2015 were a hefty $38,041.
But then again, Franklin Lakes is in the top-20 richest municipalities in the state. You can probably find that between those exceedingly nice couch cushions.
