Restored c.1907 Colonial in Montclair, NJ Demolished to Make Way for 60,000 Sq. Ft. Mansion

172 Lloyd Road, Montclair, New Jersey, United States, 07042

A restored c.1907 Colonial on a private 2.4 acre property bordering the Eagle Rock Reservation in Montclair, New Jersey has been demolished after selling for $3,400,000 in 2018. A previous listing paints a rather charming picture, “A gracious front porch welcomes you to an extraordinary home featuring a living room with gorgeous millwork and fireplace, dining room with deep mouldings and a Walnut panelled family room with French doors.” This is just one historic home demolished in a two-day period. The other, a neighbouring home dating to 1865, was reportedly knocked down in the middle of the night after selling for $3,885,000 in 2018. Both historic homes had been restored in recent years and each offered close to 6,000 square feet of space. According to NorthJersey.com, the demolitions are all part of a master plan to construct a new 60,000 square foot mansion, known as Lloyd Estate, complete with bowling alley, basketball court, indoor and outdoor pools, two elevators and parking for as many as 22 vehicles. According to NorthJersey.com, the owner of both properties is Melih Abdulhayogl, founder of cybersecurity company Comodo, who comes with a networth of $1.6 billion. NorthJersey.com also noted that Melih purchased a Tudor home directly across the street at 11 Undercliff Road, it’s reported that the trees on that particular property are in direct line with the skyline views from the newly proposed mansion. Architect Tom Hickey of Grade New York, the firm who designed the mansion, has been representing the owner in city meetings. While nothing has been set in stone yet, Monclair has lost two lovely historic homes. The two combined properties create a 5.65 acre estate.
