Squeezing into the limited space of a Jersey City or Hoboken townhouse can force you to get creative. If you have the budget for a waterfront two-bedroom but need exponentially more square footage, you can own this sprawling 8,500 sq. ft. estate in River Vale, and solve a different puzzle: how do you make these generous spaces your own?
The nine-foot ceilings make the home feel even roomier, a remarkable feat considering that it contains five bedrooms and six baths spread across two levels totaling over 5,800 sq. ft.; there’s also a 2,500 sq. ft. basement that offers possibilities as unlimited as your imagination.
Finished in herringbone tile, the basement offers a wealth of recreational offerings in addition to practical matters. You can enjoy a movie night in a screening room with vintage lights, surround sound, and a raised viewing platform. Get in a workout in a huge gym. Or, curate your collection in a custom wine room.
Throughout the home are custom lights, a whole-home Sonos speaker system, built-in WiFi hotspots, and Ethernet and CAT-5 cables in each bedroom. Humidifiers and the option to have humidity controls installed ensure a comfortable environment. The half-acre property is beautifully landscaped and has plentiful room for a pool.
On the first floor, a formal living and dining room with custom wood floor inlay are perfect for entertaining. There’s also an office with French doors, a two-story entry foyer with bridal staircase, and a two-story family room with a remote controlled gas fireplace.
The chef’s kitchen is truly restaurant-quality, with professional grade appliances like a 6’ Subzero glass refrigerator/freezer, eight-burner dual convection Wolf range with two matching wall ovens, a built-in microwave, three Newport brass farmhouse sinks, and two dishwashers. A huge butler’s pantry, built-in beverage center, and a 5’-by-10’ quartz island round the room out. Also on ground level is a house junior master suite with a walk-in closet, double-vanity, and glass-enclosed stand-up shower with steam/sauna.
One floor up, two large bedrooms each have walk-in closets, while a third en-suite has a walk-in closet and private bath. Then there’s the master, with his and hers custom closets, a custom floor inlay, coffered ceiling, and its own remote-controlled gas fireplace. The master bath has radiant heat and a decadent glass shower for two.
