LUXURY HOMES

This $13M Gilded Age- Style Mansion Takes  Luxury to a Whole New Level

A sprawling mansion  worthy of the Great Gatsby

recently came to market in the small but affluent community of Mendham, New Jersey.

And while it may look like it was built by the Vanderbilts at the height of their wealth, the opulent home was actually built in 2008.

Reminiscent of the  Gilded Age mansions

built by some of the richest people in the country in the late 1800s, early 1900s, the opulent estate doesn’t hold anything back when it comes to luxury.

Coffered and Venetian plaster ceilings, marble columns, and intricately-carved stone fireplaces line the many rooms of this stately mansion, 

which counts 8 bedrooms, 10 full baths and another 2 partial baths, each more lavish than the last. 

The kitchen itself is the  definition of luxury

with dark wood furniture, statement lighting, and plenty of seating options (around a fireplace). 

There’s also a banquet- size dining room

a stunning conservatory, and a handful of entertainment rooms, including a spa, exercise room, billiard, home theater, pub, and wine cellar.

The estate’s grounds are  just as impressive

With beautifully-manicured lawns, water fountains, terraces with covered seating areas, and acres-worth of green space,  it's a true retreat.

The property  is lined with walking trails, old trees, and benches, giving a feel of a collection of private parks just waiting for their new owner.

To complete this upscale country residence, 

there’s also a pool with a separate  pool house and a greenhouse.
