Let’s Look Inside: This Is What 55K A Month Gets You In Middletown, New Jersey
Are you ready to take a fantasy tour with me through a very real place in Middletown? Let me introduce to you, your new home (for the next 10 mins or so while you read this)...It turns out that for about 55K a month, you can enjoy 20K square feet of water front property in Middletown, New Jersey. This stunner is on the banks of the Navesink River. Don't worry, your dog will have plenty of space to run around these 3.5 acres of exquisitely landscaped grounds. Will chopped filet mignon be acceptable for his dinner? Just checking.
Take a look inside this estate fit for a queen...want private gates? Check. Want dual Cinderella staircases under a 34 foot ceiling adorned with an elegant crystal chandelier? Check. The Venetian plastered barrel ceiling and handcrafted woodwork compliment the marble fireplace too. By the way, I'm feeling a little snacky...think we can make some s'mores in there?
Just so you know, no one expects you to actually use the spectacular dueling staircases...in this palace you'll have your own elevator. There's no point in having this place if you can't show it off so have your guest list ready to enjoy your in-home sports bar & poker/card room! Too intimate of a gathering? How about you just throw a banquet instead in your hotel sized formal dining room!
Do you like to cook? Good, there are two spacious chefs' kitchens with top-of-the line appliances, a massive granite center island and custom cabinetry. This can all get very formal so why not "get away" without leaving your estate? If you make your way to the open stairway that transports you to the lower level, you'll suddenly feel like you need a barret and a croissant because you are about to stroll through France! The decor was artfully designed to replicate the streets of Paris complete with a period-themed theatre, pub and wine cellar.
Did you just eat too many croissants? Me too. Don't worry we have our own gym, and spa, complete with locker rooms. From here, we can stroll out to the lower patio and terrace level and get some laps done in your enormous pool.
That's it, all work and no play makes for a boring fantasy. Time for some fun...let's walk to the dock slip where the imaginary yacht is...oh look that's also where you keep the jet skis! The 2nd floor features 4 large ensuite bedrooms and the grand master suite with its own fireplace, sitting room and magnificent oversized marble bath with a gold leaf ceiling and Swarovski crystal chandelier (the only kind). Need help running this place? The 2nd floor is also where you find the entrance to the caretaker's wing with its own ensuite bedroom, a full kitchen and living area.
If you ever do want to leave this paradise, your home is located only minutes away from downtown Red Bank, the beach, the fast ferry to NY and the train. Yeah, like you take the train. Ahhh that was fun! Let's do this again sometime. See the full virtual tour here.
