The Most Expensive House in NJ
We all know there are some very high-end homes in South Jersey, like the million-dollar properties along the beaches, but what about the priciest home in the entire state?
Well, let's just say there are some massive mansions on the market right now, but only one can be declared the most expensive, and you'll have to head up to Bergen County to find it.
The house is nestled in the tony town of Alpine, once labeled the wealthiest zip code in the country, which sits along the Hudson River, about 20 miles from midtown Manhattan.
Called 'The Stone Mansion,' this 30,000 sq. ft. palatial estate has 12 bedrooms, 15 full bathrooms, 4 half baths, and an 11-car garage, all sitting on six acres of land.
It comes complete with everything you'd ever need to never see the outside world again, including an indoor basketball court, movie theatre, library, 4,000-bottle wine cellar, fitness center, massage room, sauna, a ballroom, and three full bars for all of your party needs.
Of course there are 'service wings' (because God forbid you co-mingle with the help) with a full-service staff apartment, not to mention a carriage house and a separate pool house, and just around the bend, a full tennis court.
bedroom suite includes two separate spa bathrooms, and two separate dressing areas, because obvi.
The price tag for such a property? A mere $48.88 million (a steal compared to the original $68 million asking price!)
In case you were wondering, the mortgage payments would be approximately $172,098 per month (assuming a standard 20% down payment, in this case, just under $10 million.)
Alpine also has one of the lowest property tax rates in the state, meaning the approximate annual property taxes for this estate would be a measly $459,000.
