In our newest ‘Home of the Week’ we stay on the east coast and move from an Upper East Side town home to an equestrian estate in Colts Neck, New Jersey.
Nestled in the charming community of Colts Neck, New Jersey, known for its rolling equestrian farms, and rambling country roads, stands a majestic 7,000 sq. ft. luxury estate fit for a Queen. And wouldn’t you know, a Queen actually does live here. Queen Latifah that is. Built to her specifications in 2001, this home of the Grammy award-winning artist and talk show hostess combines traditional design with contemporary features, and is a perfect marriage of the styles. Throughout the home, you’ll see her personal touches like the custom bamboo and marble kitchen back splash.
I’m a homeowner. In fact, I’ve never rented. I’m a rarity within my circle of friends. I went from college dorms to back home with my parents after graduation to saving money like crazy to buying my first home just before I got married. In my mind, home ownership truly was the American Dream and at the young age of 23 I was able to fulfill that dream. But in actuality, it was a nightmare.
It’s Valentine’s Day. Roses, chocolates, fancy dinners and jewelry are the norm. Sure we could do a slideshow about homes with red in them or even chocolate-inspired decor, but honestly what is better than a hot tub? Seriously. You’ve had a long day at work and you just want to relax. Well here are some amazing homes that offer not just exceptional views and amenities, but the luxury of a hot tub as well.
