The Drawing Room: High Society at Home

french masterpiece in new jersey drawing room

Styled as a grand, 18th-century French château, this custom-designed home on two gated acres in Saddle River, New Jersey, invites entertaining on a grand scale. The magnificent gold limestone façade, imported from Jerusalem, encloses 19,000 square feet of opulent interiors adorned with coffered ceilings, crystal chandeliers, gold leaf moldings, hand-painted walls and murals, and polished, hand-cut marble floors throughout. Monumental wrought-iron doors open to a two-story entrance foyer with Ionic marble columns and a sweeping, double bridal staircase. Off the foyer are several stately reception rooms, including a piano room with custom fireplace, a palatial great room with coffered ceiling and fireplace, and an oversized formal dining room. This floor also offers a wood-panelled library, family room, and vast chef’s kitchen with two islands, top-of-the-line appliances, and breakfast room. A commercial-grade elevator with wood paneling and marble flooring serves all four levels of the home. The second floor comprises a second great room and four bedroom suites including the luxurious main suite with its spa-style bathroom, mirrored dressing room, and walk-in closets. The top floor is a bonus space with a full marble bathroom. The lower level is an entertainer’s paradise with a billiards room with fireplace, a golf simulator, movie theater, recording studio, gym, and temperature-controlled wine cellar. There’s also a guest suite, mudroom, and powder room. Outside, the resort-style pool offers a water slide, four waterfalls, and a grotto. A terrace, finished in dolomitic limestone, has a cabana with full bathroom and shower, changing room, and kitchen.
