Home of the Week: A Mediterranean Masterpiece in the Garden State

A peak inside one of the world’s finest homes – just steps away from New York City.

In our newest ‘Home of the Week‘ we move from a French country estate in Illinois to an elegant Mediterranean masterpiece in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey.

Located just 35 minutes from New York City, this $15 million dollar home is one of the most incredible homes you will see anywhere. The residence boasts 20,000 square feet of interior living space and 30 rooms in total that have been designed to invoke the grandeur and opulence of old Russian empire estates. This is immediately evident upon walking through the front door, as the entry features a hand painted dome that took two years to complete, real 24 carat gold chandaliers and sconces hand crafted in Italy, towering staircases and so much more.

The stunning architectural elements aren’t just relegated to the entryway; as every square inch of this palatial estate exudes elegance, luxury and sophistication. The home inspired by the finest estates in Europe not only looks like it belongs to royalty, but it lets you entertain like royalty too. Whether it be a full service custom bar, wine cellar, poker room, billiards room or fully functional home theater – you have a great many ways to entertain your family and friends.

The home is undoubtedly stunning, but the grounds that cradle this property are just as awe inspiring. The tranquil grounds surrounded by soaring trees connects you to nature while giving off an unparalleled sense of privacy. The gated property also features a stunning Jacuzzi and pool for those warm New Jersey nights!

The home is just 35 minutes from the big apple and has a walk-in closet bigger than most New York City apartments! The property offers up the best of both worlds – ultra private luxury just a hop, skip and a jump away from the bright lights of one of the world’s most enthralling cities.
