Situated on nine acres, Queen Latifah designed this home with two things in mind: comfort and entertaining. She used this home as her personal retreat and for hosting parties with close friends and family. You can easily see how amazing this place would be to go to for an event as it boasts an Olympic size pool, a recreational room complete with wet bar, a piano room, and multiple guest rooms and baths.

While the home is an amazing escape, Queen Latifah fell in love with the area and local shops including her particular favorite, Delicious Orchards, a local family owned market.

While she spends much of her time in California due to the success of The Queen Latifah show, this Jersey girl at heart has definitely left her stylish and chic mark in Colts Neck.
