        Thanks, Jeff! That means SOOOO much to me. I love hearing that from my readers, it makes me like my job that much more 🙂

  • Daniel

    Has some nice details. Glad to see they attempted to add a bit more landscaping.

  • Hugh

    Nice place

  • Paul

    So it comes with a houseboy? jk

    • Kenny Forder

      Indeed! haha

    You take better pictures than some of the realtor pros do.
    The house is less offensive than most of the NJ monstrosities out there. But I get the feeling it’s a tract house when looking out the windows from the pictures. You never get the feeling of prosperity when you can watch the neighbor’s television through his window.
    The one killer pet peeve I have for all of these modern houses is the size of the library/study. Why have them if you can pick up a book from one bookcase and practically put it in the opposite book case without moving your feet? It ends up looking more like a bowling lane than somewhere to read.
    Still, overall far less offensive than most NJ mansions.
    (I still love Blairsden and wish I had the money for that one.)

    Its quite lovely, though I would expect an outdoor pool for the price. Still the staircase, master bath, and kitchen are nice.

    I don’t know if this is your full time job but it looks like you have a lot of fun. How bad can it be touring mansions for a living?

    • Kenny Forder

      It’s my only job as of right now lol. Yes, I have a BLAST! It’s like Christmas to me when I go tour a home 🙂 haha

    A full time job touring mansions? It’s a dirty job but I guess somebody has to do it?

    The house, not so bad, so much better than it’s competition out in Jersey, but it could have been done alittle better. I think somebody bought up every style of pendant and chandelier in the lighting store and managed to fit them all in here. Overall a fun tour of a nice house.

    Now get into Blairsden please and take some photos!!!!!

    • Kenny Forder

      I agree with you about the lighting fixtures haha. The bad things about the house is that there is no elevator, no entrance to the lower level from the foyer and the backyard isn’t that big.

      • Tony

        Are you saying there should be an elevator in the foyer that leads to the lower level? I think there should be some stairs near the back of the house somewhere like where the stairs to the basement would normally be or an elevator somewhere off to the side or the back of the house that leads to the lower level.

        • Kenny Forder

          No, there should be an elevator in the hallway. There are stairs near the back of the house too. That’s the only way you can get to the basement. I’m saying there should be a way to get to the basement near the foyer as well.

          • Tony

            Oh ok, I don’t think I have ever seen a house with basement stairs in or near the foyer though. Stairs leading to the basement are usually in the back of a house.

    LOVE the front door.
