An early 90s contemporary boasting New York City skyline views, this home located in Carlstadt is asking $925,000. Offering “an extremely rare find” in Bergen County, the property includes a large lot and very low taxes.

At 5,000 square feet, the home includes four beds and five baths. The master suite contains a generously sized master bath, a balcony, and an equally spacious walk-in closet.

The home’s library incorporates built-in oak bookcases that are at odds with the modern interior. Through the use of a half-wall, they overlook the double-height living room space below, allowing natural light to truly flood the entire space. The living room below has a custom fireplace and large windows, providing the home with plenty of natural light.

A special feature of this home is located in the basement — a personal wine cellar to store your collection.

The backyard offers a peaceful escape as its tucked away and private, complete with a personal Koi pond. The terrace provides plenty of room for entertaining and access to a sound system that is connected inside and outside. In contrast, the front patio offers a less private alternative but makes up for it with skyline views.

With some updating and different furniture, this home has potential; though it remains to be seen if a buyer at this price point can be found for Carlstadt. According to Zillow, the home was originally listed back in June for $1,090,000. It was recently relisted for $925,000.
