AOL Real EstateSeptember 05, 2012Now we've seen some crazy homes (ones with slides, zeppelins, dolls hanging from the ceiling, you name it), but our heart still skips a beat when we see a swimming pool where it shouldn't be. In this case, it's smack in the middle of this gorgeous living room in Saddle River, N.J.
Look at that thing: It may be totally out of place, but it's also exquisite (that mosaic tiling!).
Pool aside, the house itself is equally exquisite. It has French manor-style interiors, a "Gone With the Wind"-worthy grand hall boasting dramatic stone columns, custom moldings, dripping crystal chandeliers, and Italian marble mantles. There's also a cherrywood library and an in-house bar. What else could you possibly need to keep yourself entertained?
In case all the unabashed luxury was starting to make you feel a little uneasy, perhaps you can breathe a little easier knowing that the entire home is green -- well, as green as you can get for a mansion. It's powered entirely by geothermic and solar energy.
So how much will this green, glam home set you back? Oh, you know, just $19 million. But walking through your living room and tripping into your own pool? Priceless.
Michael Graves of Core NYC has the listing.
