$14.5 Million French Chateau in Cresskill

This French chateau-esque mansion has just hit the market for a whopping $14,500,000. That makes it one of the most expensive homes for sale in the state.  Located at 204 Vaccaro Road in Cresskill, NJ, the home sits on 1.6 manicured acres overlooking the Montamy Country Club. While it’s officially located in Cresskill, about half of the property is actually considered Alpine. It is located near Cresskill’s premier Tamcrest Estates, where the homes tend to sell for between $4,000,000 and $8,000,000. At 18,000 square feet, it is one of the largest in the neighborhood. I’m still shocked by the priced though, because the 2nd most expensive home in the area is on the market for $7.6 million (about half) and has more than 13,000 square feet of living space. 204 Vaccaro Road boasts 9 bedrooms, 11 full and 3 half baths, 5 fireplaces, banquet sized dining room, great room with 5 French doors, mahogany paneled library/office, family room with wet bar, glass conservatory, gym, home theater, indoor swimming pool with spa and sauna, a steam room and a Moroccan party room. The estate’s grounds include formal gardens, stone courtyard, patios, tennis court, giant chess set, rotunda, orchard, and a vineyard. What do you think?
