Today’s “Photo of the Week” takes a glimpse into one of Saddle River, New Jersey’s most lavish homes. Last week, 105 Chestnut Ridge Road was filmed for an upcoming installment of HGTV’s “Top 10 Outrageous Homes in America,” with listing broker Michael Graves taking the entire camera crew on a tour of this spectacular French manor. Displaying some of the most unique homes in the country, “Top 10 Outrageous Homes in America” showcases incredible properties that have extravagant features and amenities. Listed at $17.5 million, the home’s well-appointed interior is highlighted by a spectacular indoor pool and custom infinity hot tub, situated in a separate entertainment area located off the foyer. The photo above captures Michael in front of the camera as he continues the tour, leading the crew and TV producer Sara Ivey throughout the home. This massive 25,000-square-foot, five-bedroom, seven-bathroom mansion features radiant heated floors, an elevator to each floor, Crestron home entertainment system, double height floor-to-ceiling windows, cabana, custom bar, outdoor USTA grade tennis court and two double parking garages at either side of the home. For someone looking for a classically-configured home with amazingly unique amenities, this exquisite home is undoubtedly a home buyer’s dream, nestled just a short drive from New York City.
Taken from the penthouse at 39 Fifth Avenue, this week’s photo of the week was shot by CORE’s Tony Sargent, who perfectly captured the mechanics and architecture of old New York. If you’re walking around Manhattan, especially downtown, it’s hard to miss dozens of rooftop water towers, even when they’re concealed. In addition to the water tower’s charm, we are drawn to the beautiful architectural details of this Emery Roth-designed building that is covered in interesting patterns and designs that are typical of Spanish Renaissance-style architecture.
Last night’s The New York Observer’s 25th Anniversary celebration at The Four Seasons Restaurant had no shortage of celebrities and other notable guests in attendance. With names like Katie Holmes, Spike Lee, Rupert Murdoch and Donald Trump as guests, one could easily get lost in the crowd of New York’s most influential individuals. This week’s “Photo of the Week” captures CORE’s very own Shaun Osher and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg having a meeting of the minds, taking a moment to chat as the event was underway. Perhaps the two of them were discussing the real estate market in New York City or the latest episode of Selling New York!
CORE was a proud sponsor of last night’s event, along with several other real estate firms throughout the city.
Tom Postilio & Mickey Conlon are well-known for their star-studded closings, but the showbiz veterans are certainly no strangers to the swankiest openings in town. The duo were guests of their friend and client, legendary songwriter and performer Barry Manilow, for the glittering opening of his critically acclaimed limited engagement, “MANILOW ON BROADWAY” at the St. James Theatre. Beloved by a worldwide audience for more than three decades, the Grammy Award-winning superstar has enriched the American Songbook with dozens of unforgettable hits, including “Mandy,” “I Write the Songs,” and “Copacabana.” Mickey, Barry, and Tom are pictured here at the opening night party held at (where else?) The Copacabana.
Always discreet, Tom & Mickey, who closed the deal on the pop star’s New York digs, won’t reveal where Barry calls home here in the Big Apple, but added that Mr. Manilow “has exquisite taste, so it should be no surprise that his residence here ranks among the finest in the city.”
This week’s photo of the week was provided by CORE’s Brooklyn specialist, Doug Bowen. Taken from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and close to his new townhouse exclusive at 152 Willow Street, this image captures some of Downtown Manhattan’s architectural gems. From left to right, you can see 40 Wall Street’s green copper spire, 60 Wall Street’s post modern, neoclassical columns, and 120 Wall Street’s Art Deco-style setbacks. Recently landmarked, 70 Pine is capped with a Gothic-style spire, and progress on One World Trade Center can be seen as well.
We snapped this stunning shot of Manhattan from the rooftop of our new development 93 Worth. We have shared some other photos from this project but this incredible and pristine view seems endless. Spanning almost the entire width of Manhattan, this shot captures many iconic NYC buildings including the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building.
No matter how many times you look at them, the iconic buildings shaping the New York skyline never lose their magic. CORE’s CEO Shaun Osher, snapped this striking photo of the Chrysler Building while out in Manhattan this week. Once the world’s tallest building, this skyscraper, as seen from 42nd Street, displays the beautiful ornamentation and details of the classic Art Deco architecture.
You may have noticed a construction site on Fifth Avenue, between 27th and 28th Streets – its our new development project at 241 Fifth Avenue! This is the only ground-up new construction residential project in New York City’s booming NoMad neighborhood. In our “Photo of the Week”, the construction crew is busy installing the oversized windows into the homes which will have sweeping views of Fifth Avenue, one of the most coveted addresses in the City. Sales will launch soon – stay tuned!
Nothing conveys the promise of a New Year like a heavenly sunset. Here in New York City we are blessed to have our sunsets reflected 1,000 times over in our glass-covered skyscrapers. Today’s photo was taken by David Beare on the rooftop of a building on Canal Street overlooking the garden at Soho Mews.
We know you’ve been waiting with baited breath for any information about our new Tribeca development at 93 Worth. There’s been a lot of buzz (including the project gracing the cover of New York Post’s fall new development preview), but not much information has been shared on this new conversion project. Amid the construction this week, we captured a mural artist painting the 93 Worth logo on the alley which will greet potential buyers as they enter the building to check out the model units.
