Every now and then, a listing comes along that is more than just a home, estate or property. There are few properties that combine classic and modern styles and are perfect for those who appreciate true craftsmanships, ornate details throughout their home, and cutting-edge technology. But one listing is now available for the sophisticated buyer - the French Masterpiece at 12 Warewoods Road in Saddle River, New Jersey.
"This uniquely-crafted French chateau masterpiece is a dream home come true in a very serene-yet-affluent area," says George Kevo, the owner and developer of Kevo Development who represents the property. Saddle River's serene country setting is home to corporate CEOs, foreign dignitaries and a multitude of celebrities while being less than 20 minutes from the heart of New York City.
The estate has over 19,000 square feet with 28 rooms, including seven bedroom suites, nine full baths and three half baths. Upon entering the French estate, you're greeted by a breathtaking two-story coffered ceiling entrance foyer, a bridal marble staircase, hand-forged wrought iron railing and unique polish stone flooring with elaborate borders and ornate medallions. Polished details run throughout the first floor, including into the adjacent ballroom and cherry library, which both feature custom fireplaces, as well as the gourmet kitchen and custome bar that come equipped with Wolf, Miele and Subzero appliances.
Climb the staircase and find yourself on the second floor, where four bedroom suites and master bedroom suite are located. Each bedroom suite has a private bathroom and walk-in closet, but the master bedroom suite is clearly the most luxurious of the bedrooms: You'll find a sitting room with a built-in car and walk-out balcony, a private bathroom featuring an oversized Whirlpool bath with built-in led televisions behind mirrors and a make-up vanity with marble counters, a fireplace, surround sound in the master suite, and oversized walk-in closets. To top it off, the master oversized closet continues on the third floor featuring an oversized closet and a changing room. The third floor also features a playroom with a full marble bathroom, as well as an office.
Though the majority of the estate gives way to a classical style of architecture and design, some features of the estate are on the brink of technology, like the elevator that reaches all four floors of the property. Take it down to the lower level, and you'll find other cutting-edge technology in rooms like the professional theater with 13 powered leather custom seating and top-of-the-line audio and video equipment, and the golf simulator room with top courses around the world. The lower level also features a large gym, a maid's room, a billiard room, a card room, a wine cellar with climate control, a study room, a powder room and four oversized garages floored with skid-free ceramic tiles.
In the backyard of the French estate, amenities are abundant as well. A grand water park includes a pool with a water slide, four waterfalls, and a grotto with a swim out, as well as a changing room and full bath to accommodate swimmers. But, if you just want to enjoy the outdoors, a state-of-the-art kitchen is featured with a large amount of seating to entertain guests.
The French Masterpiece is listed at $12.995 million. Interested buyers can visit www.frenchmasterpiece.com to see more photos and read the specs of this property.
