SEE THIS HOUSE: A $68 MILLION AMERICAN MASTERPIECE!

Exterior of a mansion in New Jersey

Uhm...$68 million dollars? Hello?

That's how much this stately home in Alpine New Jersey is currently listed for by Sotheby's International. Not you typical neighborhood home for sale...right? A tried and true mansion. Hmmm...liking it!

30,000 square feet, 12 bedrooms 15 bathrooms, 4 half baths, 3+ fireplaces, 5 car garage, heated driveway and motor court, indoor basketball court, wine cellar/grotto, home theater and more...

I think I could make do with this. I like this real estate listing because it is a blank slate...ready to be given the COCOCOZY treatment! If only!

Hallway with wood floor, Greek columns, arched entryway, black and white tile floor, moulded detailing and a coffered ceiling


Foyer with black and white tile floor, arched ceiling, crystal chandelier, iron railings and paneled walls

Living room with two crystal chandeliers, wood floor, french doors opening to a balcony, paneled walls, wall mounted candle holders and moulded ceiling

Library with arched, coffered ceiling, chandelier, wood floor and wood paneled walls and cabinets with glass doors

What do you think of this home for sale? Take it or leave it? I'd take it!

Happy Tuesday!

  7. With all the money in the world, I would never own a house like that. I'm fixated on barns right now, or I'd build a Bobby McAlpine house!

  12. I would take it, immediately sell it. Donate $ 40 million to my favorite charities, take the other $ 28 million and by a few nice homes. Wouldn't want to become a slave to such a giant home.

  19. That wood panelled room with the built in cases, windows on three sides, and the mantel to one side... so gorgeous! I couldn't see myself living in a house that huge, even if I had the money, but it is beautiful... and ready for someone to put their stamp on it. :-)
