We went looking for a nice NJ pool, found a drool-worthy 2-story closet
You know, if you can afford a $6.75 million home, you probably do have enough clothes to justify what looks like a two-story walk-in closet.
This week, we went looking through real estate listings to find a swanky home with a to-die-for pool — because with heat indexes nearing 110 this weekend, even the thought of cooling off was appealing.
And sure, the home at 21 Hominy Hill Road in Colts Neck has what looks like a gorgeous pool — but that's barely the beginning.
According to property tax records, the address was last sold in 2003 for just $670,000. Now selling at 10 times the price, it's fair to say some improvements to the property have been made. The home was built in 2005.
It's formally listed as a "single-family home" — but you could accomodate an awfully big family with its nine bedrooms and 13 baths.
"A lifestyle of elegance & serenity awaits the owner of this secluded French-inspired estate in the heart of Colt Neck's idyllic horse country," the home's listing on Zillow.com reads. "This custom stone and stucco home is a testament to vision, creativity & commitment to quality."
The listing mentions that while it's "large by almost any standard" (You think? There's 11,529 square feet to this home. Did we mention the 13 baths?) "this home achieves an intimacy & a welcome home quality that comes from good design."
"A marble foyer leads to exquisitely appointed formal rooms, a stylish state-of-the art kitchen and relaxed gathering places. Landscaped gardens enfold an outdoor paradise featuring a summer kitchen with a spa and pool," the listing continues. "Architectural details that abound in this home are magnificent. The suspended curved staircase is elegantly center stage & the oak treads, rail & iron spindle details add an artistic element to the overall design."
We spotted, in addition to some very large bedrooms, a rec room, a den, a gazebo outside, a five-car garage and housekeeper quarters. If you wanted, you could stage a hit PBS drama in this place.
Juste be prepared to keep shelling out the cash. Last year, taxes for this home were more than $49,000, according to Zillow. But then again, if this is the home you're looking at, you're not exactly a bargain shopper.
