“Drive between limestone columns to enter the first of a myriad of lavishly landscaped terraces that distinguish this completely private, Navesink River estate. View the unfolding scenic beauty of the Navesink River estuary, the area along its banks one of the most affluent in New Jersey. Stately gates open to a stone paver- accented “heated” driveway winding amidst ivy drenched stone walls that define terraces replete with flowering crepe myrtle, magnolia and cherry trees, interspersed with an array of gracious evergreens. Hefty Castleton green and bronze-toned slate tiles blanket the dramatic turreted and cupola ornamented rooflines, crowned by a decorative widow’s watch. Round a bend to survey an architectural masterpiece, a limestone and stucco palatial residence that blends artfully the charm of a French Chateau with sophistication of old world elegance, offering the bravado of “new world” appeal. Pass by a magnificent 2.5 story pillared portico towards the sweeping, multi-terraced, gated grounds that lead to the water’s edge. En route, traverse a Tennessee Crab Orchard stone patio that flows about a salt-water purified, kidney-shaped pool with elevated spa and cascading waterfalls, drifting further to a secluded shaded sitting area. Natural stone boulders form walls and steps that lead to gently curved pave paths on which to stroll the perimeter of rolling lawns bordered by gardens bursting with seasonal color. Discover a neatly tucked away organic vegetable and herb garden or wander to either bookend perch overlooking the picturesque Navesink River and Atlantic Ocean beyond. Adventure through several rose-laden terraces on an Ipe wood staircase to a boat dock with an oversized power lift, jutting more than one hundred feet into the Navesink. Take time for brief repose at any one of the multiple benched observation vistas. At dock’s end, turn back to behold the commanding,presence of the mansion set high on a hill, nestled proudly among “Terraces on the Navesink”. Middletown Twp property with a Rumson zip code of 07760.” ~Zillow.com
