How much is an unobstructed view of Manhattan worth?
There simply is nothing else like this custom home in South Orange, NJ.
Swanky. Sophisticated. Sexy. Spectacular. Awesome. Elegant. Gorgeous. Breathtaking. Inspiring. Unpretentious.
These are but a few of the many adjectives swirling around the fabulous cocktail party at THE Trophy Property of South Orange on Tuesday evening. A catered affair for 60+ Realtors, who have all been there, done that, but who were swooning in this sleek custom home designed by noted architect John Rubenstein, who designed the Hotel du Cap D’Antibes masterpiece on Hemlock Road in Short Hills as well.
The owners were driving down Crest Drive one day in 2005 and saw a little ranch on the edge of the mountain with the most incredible, unobstructed views of NYC. They tore it down and created a sense of peace and tranquility in their dream home now standing at 52 Crest Drive.
The beguiling old world exterior blends seamlessly with an open contemporary floor plan, but still stays warm and inviting while majestically presenting the tri-state vistas for all to see.Grand windows in every room take advantage of the reach-out-and-touch it view, while drawing the outdoors in. Lush landscaping and specimen plantings frame two stone patios perfect for renewing the spirit and dining al fresco in complete privacy.
Truly like being on vacation at home, it is remarkable how serene this 5 year young home is, yet just minutes away from downtown South Orange Village and the Midtown Direct train to NYC in 30 minutes.Gourmet kitchen with modern design and breakfast table overlooking the skyline
