A palatial New Jersey mansion with a grotto-like indoor pool and a basketball court hit the market this week for $25 million, a price that catapulted it to the top of the market as the most expensive offering in the Garden State.
The waterfront property is tucked away behind gates in FranklinLakes, in northern New Jersey, some 30 minutes from Manhattan.
“The list price of the home reflects the value of what a truly distinctive offering this property is,” listing agent Grace Ziarko, with Christie’s International Real Estate Northern New Jersey, Franklin Lakes, told Mansion Global over email. “The grandeur of the home really speaks for itself.”
The property is jam-packed with luxurious amenities across its sizable 14,700 square feet.
“The impressive entry foyer sets the tone, and the recently redone interior delivers a seamless connection to the outdoor area,” she said. “The open floor plan and floor-to-ceiling windows create an unmatched lake-living experience.”
A standout feature, the foyer boasts white oak heated floors and a sweeping staircase with a hand-forged iron railing. Elsewhere in the five-bedroom home are stately fireplaces, a basketball court, a wine cellar with a tasting room, a movie theater and a bar, according to the listing.
“The home has so many unique luxury amenities,” said Ms. Ziarko, who brought the property to market this week. There’s also “a spectacular indoor pool area with [a] tree house towering two stories above the pool with views of the lake and indoor waterfall.”
Spanning 800 square feet, the saltwater pool stretches “from indoors to outdoors, and features a water slide and grotto,” Ms. Ziarko said. “Outdoors, there is a stunning infinity pool with state-of-the-art pool house and ample opportunities for outdoor entertaining and relaxation.”
The home—which is owned through a limited liability company, records with PropertyShark show—shares the title of New Jersey’s priciest with one other home in Alpine, asking the same sum.
