Tempted to splash out? The incredible $19 million New Jersey mansion with a swimming pool in the living room

Mail OnlineSeptember 06, 2012
If you're spending $19 million on a new home, you would expect a few extras thrown in.

And, with a swimming pool in the living room, this opulent French manor house won't let you down.

The pool at the mansion in the exclusive Saddle River, New Jersey neighbourhood stretches between plush white sofas and overlooks the property's 4.4 acres through floor-to-ceiling windows.

It's just a stone's throw from the in-house bar - making it all the easier to fetch champagne cocktails to help you muster a leisurely swim.

And if it all gets just a little too much to bear, the room also houses an infinity hot tub to de-stress.

But the pool, which is tiled with mosaics, is not the only notable feature of the home, which was completed just six months ago.

The 25,000-square-foot mansion is entirely green, relying solely on geothermic and solar energy - making sure there isn't so much guilt after shelling out $19 million for such unabashed luxury.

The furnished house also offers an impressive entryway with eight dramatic stone columns weighing two-and-a-half tons each and a hallway dripping with crystal chandeliers.

Up the twin staircases upstairs - or the elevator - there is a master suite with two bathrooms and dressing rooms, and four guest bedrooms.

The mansion also offers a cinema room, a dining room, library, second living room and five grand marble fireplaces. Outside, there's a double parking garage and gates to protect the house.

There is also an outdoor lit tennis court, just one of two homes with the feature in the neighbourhood.

'The swimming pool is just one of the incredible features of the property,' Michael Graves from realtors Core NYC told MailOnline.

He added that he expects the home will garner interest from business executives or celebrities in need of top security and privacy, as the house has a gate and cannot be seen from the road.
