Holy Moly!!!!!!! Richard Kurtz’s 30,000 square foot mega-mansion, located at 1 Frick Drive off of Closter Dock Road in Alpine, NJ, has gone back on the market with an insane asking price of $68 Million. This makes it the most expensive real estate listing in New Jersey history. If you don’t know already, Kurtz, who owns Kamson Corporation, purchased the entire 60-acre Frick estate for $58 million back in 2006. It is the first house to be built in the “Estates at Alpine” subdivision, which is located on the Frick estate property, of a dozen or so homes that are going to be priced at $30 million and up. This particular home went on the market for a staggering $42,500,000 about 2 years ago. Then, the price jumped to an even more mind numbing $52 million. After rejecting an offer around $36 million, homeowner Richard Kurtz took it off the market and decided that him and his wife wanted to live in the house themselves. Well, now it has reappeared on the market with a $16 million price increase. The home was designed by renowned architect James Paragano and was built by Sal Lombardo of Rock Ridge Construction Management.
The listing agent, Dennis McCormack, said the land that the home sits on is valued at $15 million alone.
The grand 42-room estate features a 250 long foot driveway, motor court, 12 bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, a library, den, family room, breakfast room, large gourmet kitchen, several fireplaces, a guest wing, a ballroom, great room, conservatory, formal galleries, 4 stair halls, a movie theater, massage room, an indoor basketball court, an elevator, 65-foot swimming pool, pool house, tennis court, and an 11-car garage.
Everything about this home is MAGNIFICENT. I drool a little bit every time I look at it. It is my favorite house in New Jersey, if not the whole country. As you can see, it was built with the finest craftsmanship and materials around. I love the fact that they’ve staged some of the rooms for private showings. Could you imagine all of the lavish parties that you would be able to throw at this mansion?!! What do you guys think?!
