Peapack Gladstone Boro, New Jersey, United States
A sprawling mansion steeped in architectural detail has come on the market in New Jersey’s wealthy enclave of Peapack Gladstone Boro for $13.5-million. The residence, known as Four Seasons, sits on 62 secluded acres with dramatic panoramas of the rolling Somerset Hills. Four Seasons derives its name from the four stone busts representing the four seasons, on the front facade by American sculptor Edmond Romulus Amateis. The property is enhanced by formal gardens, a renowned 16-stall brick stable complex, a three-bedroom guest house, lighted tennis courts, heated swimming pool, and a brick greenhouse. It was originally designed by New York architect James C. Mackenzie, and was rebuilt & renovated in the late 1920’s for Edith Clair and her husband Richard Van Nest Gambrill. The home includes 19-rooms with 5 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, and spacious formal rooms including a banquet-sized dining hall. Eight rooms on the third floor once housed staff, and an elevator serves all four levels of the house. The 62-acre estate is listed with Turpin Realtors for $13.5-million.
