Perched high in the hills of Cedar Grove, at the end of a private road and sitting on over five acres, is the regal Rockledge Manor. Its breathtaking panoramic views offer an unobstructed picture of New York City's twinkling skylines that seems close enough to touch. The backdrop of rolling lush suburban hills against some of New York City's most iconic sights, ranging from the George Washington Bridge, the Empire State Building, the Freedom Tower to the Verrazano Bridge and the Bay make this location one of the most sought after in the state. Located just 15 miles from Midtown Manhattan, this stately home offers the ultimate in luxury, privacy, tranquility, and convenience.
This custom built and masterfully designed estate was created by artists from the Metropolitan Museum of Art who took the time to perfect every detail, and spared no expense to achieve a level of luxury and elegance that is second to none. With too many details to list, Rockledge Manor is a true work of art with a nod to old world craftsmanship which is evidenced in its plaster moldings, ceiling medallions, numerous marble fireplaces, crystal chandeliers, solid cherry paneling, and herringbone floors. This brick and limestone home boasts 23 rooms and 11 bathrooms, with a guest wing ideal for those in need of an in-law suite or staff quarters with separate entrance and stairway. The grounds of the estate feature luxurious lawns and over two thousand plantings and trees that perfectly frame the 10,000 square foot terrace and 20,000 square foot paver deck. The Pièce de résistance of the outdoor space is the 87-foot free form diving pool with raised spa and waterfall from which the magnificent Manhattan views can be enjoyed.
With New York City in its backyard this state of the art home is an entertainer's paradise offering a sweeping landscape and gorgeous finishes, all in an ultra private setting. Its true beauty and refined sophistication must be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
