From the stadium-lit tennis court to the acres of lush greenery, this one-of-a-kind estate exemplifies several coveted luxury real estate trends, only minutes outside of Manhattan.
Boasting more than eight acres and approximately 35,000 square feet, it’s hard to believe this private oasis is only minutes from Manhattan. Situated in one of New Jersey’s most exclusive neighborhoods, Alpine, 887 Closter Dock Road showcases many of the current trends we’re seeing in luxury real estate. From its indoor and outdoor basketball courts to its handpainted ceilings, this massive estate provides the opulence and privacy of resort-like living without being too far from the city.
Hot Trend: Proximity to City Life…with Country-Style Quiet
As people are spending more time at home, one of the biggest factors luxury buyers are looking for right now is having more room to roam without the inconvenience of a long commute. According to listing agent and Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Property Specialist, Joshua Baris, this is why many luxury buyers are drawn to Alpine—it’s about a 30-minute drive from Manhattan, plus it has lower taxes. Surrounded by acres of lush greenery, this estate offers an idyllic, serene escape from the city.
Hot Trend: Grand Entrance
The first impression of a home evokes a feeling that sticks with us. That’s why, especially for buyers who like to entertain, a home’s entrance holds a lot of importance—and 887 Closter Dock Road knocks it out of the park. Guests enter through the stately wrought iron gates, proceed along the incredibly lush, winding driveway and arrive at a grandiose circle drive that showcases the incredible scale of this home. Not only will guests feel an opulent welcome, but this entrance gives the homeowners a feeling of returning to paradise every time they come home.
Hot Trend: Recreational Spaces
Another popular trend that is illustrated throughout this home is the addition of recreational spaces. Beyond a pool or a playroom, luxury buyers are looking for fun features in a home that complement their hobbies. At 887 Closter Dock Road, the spaces that make room for these hobbies are abundant—including a stadium-lit tennis court, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, a pool, a home theater and even an arcade.
