New Jersey’s most expensive home is back on the market for $48.8 million — take a look inside

new jersey stone mansion bedroomThe Stone Mansion, a 30,000-square-foot property located on the former Frick Estate if New Jersey’s exclusive Alpine community, is back on the market for $48.8 million.

Still New Jersey’s most expensive home, it features 12 bedrooms, 19 bathrooms, and extravagant features like an indoor basketball court and a 4,000-bottle wine cellar.

The home has been on and off the market for several years, but this time it’s being listed by its current owner, Richard Kurtz, CEO of property management company Kamson.

“I built the house with my ex-wife, with the intention of living in the home,” Kurtz recently told Business Insider. “We worked hard together on picking out every detail, spending days on end in the mansion and with the architects, designers, construction team … I no longer need this large of a home, and I am hoping that it ends up in the right hands, with a buyer who will appreciate the details, love and sweat equity that I have put in it over the years.”

The mansion spans six acres of land in Alpine, New Jersey, eight miles from New York City. It includes a main house complex and an attached carriage house. Kurtz said that the prime location is one of the home’s main draws: “You can be at work in less than 30 minutes, but living in a gorgeous, state-of-the-art house, with every amenity and detail possible.”

“I think that [the ideal buyer] is a family who has the money to purchase a ‘mansion in the sky’ in Manhattan, but who is now looking to raise their children on a beautiful property with incredible features and space, as well as the safety and security that The Stone Mansion features,” Kurtz said.

Many of the vaulted ceilings are lined with pure gold trimmings. The master suite comes complete with his and hers bathrooms, as well as his and hers closets.
