In the basement, the large family room stays cool in the summer and is the very picture of a cozy spot in the winter with a crackling fire. The ground floor also features a fitness gym, spa-like steam shower, and a sauna large enough to fit multiple people.

The Perks of Estate Living

The backyard is a resort-like oasis with an in-ground Gunite pool complete with its very own waterfall, surrounded by luscious landscaping including hydrangeas and ferns. The newly-built pool house features a kitchen, bar, bathroom, changing room, and laundry. A large grass field provides space for hours of fun and play.

This estate goes beyond the stone mansion, pool house, and professionally landscaped grounds to include a two-bedroom carriage house above the three-car garage. The property backs onto parkland for a truly private oasis without sacrificing proximity to the shopping, dining, museums, and entertainment in Bloomfield and Montclair.
