This is the most expensive house for sale in all of New Jersey
New Jersey has its fair share of multi-million dollar mansions—After all, many a famous athlete, rock star and business person has chosen to call the great Garden State home.
But the Frick Estate is the most expensive home on the market in New Jersey, today.
In Alpine, Bergen County, a mere eight miles from Manhattan, it boasts 30,000 sq feet of complete opulence. Henry Clay Frick II was a New Jersey resident whose name may be familiar to you. He was a renowned physician and trustee of the famous Frick collection in NYC.
But of all of his many accomplishments, what he is most well known for by many New Jerseyans is that he lived on the property upon which lies the most expensive private home in New Jersey. And for just a measly $39 million, it can be yours!
The home features 42 rooms, 12 of which are bedrooms, 15 full and 4 half baths, a home theater, elevator, a spa/fitness center, an indoor basketball court, and a 4,000-bottle wine cellar. The property boasts lavish landscapes gardens, a 65-foot saltwater pool, a tennis court (natch) staff quarters, and a motor court with housing for 11 cars (obviously).
When you consider that the home has been for sale since 2011 and first listed at $56 million, you’re getting quite a bargain at the current price of $39.9 million!
If you’ve managed to crunch the numbers to find this house within your budget, don’t forget to sock away an extra $311,000 per year. Because no matter how rich you are, you can’t escape New Jersey property taxes!
