Today I went to an open house located at 16 Litchfield Way in Alpine, NJ. I’ve blogged about this home before but I thought I’d share it once again since I had the pleasure to tour it. The newly built Colonial style mansion features a circular driveway with steps leading up to the grand front entry. Inside features over 9,760 square feet of living space on 3 finished floors. The 1st floor boasts a 2-story foyer with sweeping staircase, formal dining room to your left, formal living room to your right, library that’s open to the living room, main hallway, large gourmet eat-in kitchen, step-down great/family room with stone fireplace, guest bedroom and a mudroom. The 2nd floor features the large master suite complete with his-and-hers walk-in closets and a master bathroom with huge soaking tub. There are also 4 secondary bedrooms on this level. The spacious lower level features a large recreation area with custom bar, wine cellar, home theater, mirrored gym, maids bedroom and storage. The home also features a 3-car garage and plenty of room in the backyard to put in a pool! What I liked most about this home is the amazing attention to detail. There are dozens of crystal chandeliers, custom moldings and trim throughout, coffered ceilings, hand-carved fireplaces and much more. It was first listed back in January for $6,250,000 and can now be yours for just $5,975,000, which is a great price considering its location!!

P.S – I didn’t take that many personal pics because my phone sucks! ha

    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?

    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!!!!!

      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.

        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.

          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.

            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.
