Pictures of New Jersey Mansions

August 11, 2009

This is, if you do not already know, the home of Rev Run. The home appears in his hit reality show Run’s House. It is located on Wildwood Road in Saddle River, NJ. It was recently listed for sale.


This is the front gate to Hip Hop Mogul Russell Simmons’ palatial 35,000 square foot mega-mansion located at 101 Fox Hedge Road in Saddle River, NJ. The home used to be on the market, but it seems to have slipped off.


This home is also located on Fox Hedge Road. It is listed for $7,395,000 and is a new construction. I emailed the listing agent, Vicki Gaily, and asked if I could take a tour of the home. She is going to ask the builder and see if its alright. If so, I’ll take plenty of pics!


This home is located on Truman Drive in Cresskill and is part of Tamcrest Estates.



This home is located on Vaccaro Drive in Cresskill. I love the style of this home. It is very French inspired.



This is Hip Hop Mogul P.Diddy’s house on Anderson Avenue in Alpine, aka Rapper’s Delight, NJ. He purchased the 17,000 square foot home for $8.95 back in 2004.

The Jonas Brothers to buy Alpine, NJ Mansion

July 26, 2009










The home was originally on the market for $12,000,000 and is now listed at $9,995,000. It is located at 20 Timberline Drive in Alpine, NJ. It contains 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, an elevator, 3 kitchens, a 4-room master suite, library, 1st floor media room, gym, home theater, guest quarters, a 7-car garage, a tennis court, and an indoor swimming pool. I don’t think that this home fits them. If I was them, I would buy either this home or this home which are in nearby Saddle River. They are much more nicer inside and only in the $7-$9 million range.

July 7, 2009

Recently traded basketball superstar Shaquille O’Neal has finally sold his Miami mansion which is located on the exclusive Star Island after a few years on the market. The home was bought by Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin (Naomi Campbell’s rumored boyfriend) for $16 million. This is nowhere near what it was originally priced at. Shaq bought the house for $18.8 million back in August of 2004. The home, which measures in at 19,444 square feet, was first put on the market for a whopping $35 million. Then, it went down to $22.5 million. Thank god Shaq has finally sold it, because he now has money to buy another huge mansion when he arrives in Cleveland!

Square Feet: 19,000
   Alan Jackson, the country mega-star who has sold over 50 million records, has finally put his massive abode on the market for a spine tingling $38,000,000. That is quite an impressive price to be asking right off the bat. There is another home on the market in Franklin that is $9 million less and is around the same size. The home was built in 1997 and took 23 months to complete. The home spans a total of 26,500 square feet counting the porches and contains 6 bedrooms and 7 full and 2 half bathrooms. The estate is situated on 140 acres of prime property and the Jacksons’ have made it into a home truly worth living in. Despite its enormous sized rooms, the home has a cozy and warm feel to it. There are two spiral staircases located at either end of the foyer. The first floor contains a formal dining room, a formal living room, a maple-floored home office, a large family room complete with 22 ft. ceilings, a spacious gourmet kitchen with adjoining breakfast room, and a glass enclosed porch. The 2nd floor contains 4 bedroom suites, an exercise room, and nanny quarters. There is also a third floor that contains a game room, a home theater, and a custom pub. The sprawling grounds include 3 ponds, a 10-acre lake, a boat house, a swimming pool, a barn with apartment, and an enclosed tennis court and basketball court. The best part of the house is of course the massive 20-car garage.
