A 15-acre estate in Monmouth County owned by rock star Jon Bon Jovi was recently listed for sale by Christie’s International Real Estate. The property, located at 722 Navesink River Road is a French-inspired chateau located along the Navesink River in Middletown and consists of an 18,000-square-foot mansion and four outbuildings.

Captain Kidd’s estate in Monmouth County, known as High Point Estate was designed by New York-based architect Robert A.M. Stern and boasts six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. According to Christie’s International, the main house is “detailed with a double wide entrance driveway, brick courtyards, French balconies, tall and wide mullioned windows.” The 50-foot wide living room comes with 12-foot ceilings, a grand fireplace, parquet flooring, and a custom movie theater.
