I’m sure many of you know of this home already, but if you don’t, then here’s some information on it. Ladies and gentlemen, this magnificent one-of-a-kind home is owned by one of my friends whom I met through this blog and it is one of my favorite homes ever built. The owner gave me a tour of it back in July of 2010 and it was absolutely stunning. Pictures, no matter how great they are, do not do it justice!
This gorgeous French Chateau is located at 5 Buckingham Drive in ritzy Alpine, NJ and was designed by renowned architect John Henry. It boasts roughly 14,000 square feet of living space with 7 bedrooms, 9 full and 2 half bathrooms, sweeping grand staircase, formal dining room, wood paneled library/office, 2-story great room with 3 sets of French doors and 2-sided fireplace shared with wood paneled billiards room, gourmet kitchen with breakfast room, elevator, custom wine cellar, mirrored gym, 2nd full size gourmet kitchen in lower level, home theater, recreation room, 4-car garage, large terrace and patio space, free form swimming pool with spa and more!
It was last on the market in 2010 with an asking price of $14,750,000. After a couple of months, the owner and his family ultimately decided to live in the house. They added antique furniture to some of the rooms as well as beautiful carpeting on the staircase and hallways. Even though they’re living in it now, he told me that he might put the house back on the market some time this Spring.
