RIDGEWOOD, N.J., Oct. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DeCaro Luxury Auctions has announced the absolute auction of 150 Brookside Avenue in Ridgewood, New Jersey on October 24, 2015. The eight-bedroom, eight-full and three-half bathroom American classic, shingle style estate features two acres of land and a guest apartment, all of which will be auctioned to the highest bidder without reserve on auction day.
"150 Brookside Avenue in Ridgewood, New Jersey offers homebuyers the beauty of a historic home with Victorian and Colonial influences. The entire estate was built with the precision of a condo building, yet exudes the space, privacy and family-friendly atmosphere of a home in an affluent suburban neighborhood," said Daniel DeCaro, CEO and founder of DeCaro Luxury Auctions. "Owners of this Ridgewood home will have the best of both worlds – grounds that feel like a tranquil park, yet you're only 30 minutes from Manhattan."
The 15,000-square-foot estate sits on two-acres of lush green lawns with native trees, flowering gardens and several entertaining areas including a playhouse with a microwave and a refrigerator as well as an entertaining cabin complete with electricity, an additional kitchen, a gas fireplace and heat.
Custom Bluestone rock retaining walls line the exterior of the property, which is recognized for its authentic copper gutters and a second – story wraparound veranda overlooking the grounds. All of this enclosed by a beautifully crafted wrought iron fence along the perimeter of the property and intricately – detailed wrought-iron entry gates hand – forged by a French craftsman.
Fine attention to detail carries throughout the home, which was built with a myriad of handcrafted accents by local artists. For example, the entrance of 150 Brookside Avenue features a vestibule with canvas walls that were hand-painted with a nature scene by artist Ornella Muth. Stained glass windows also adorn a variety of doors and windows carrying a unified nature theme throughout the estate. Throughout the home, hand-crafted windows also feature solid mahogany woodwork, copper flashing and antique brass pulley systems.
The master suite is complete with a fireplace, a private terrace and an oversized walk-in closet with built-in shoe racks and garment shelves, as well as a center island. The home's gourmet kitchen features Viking and Miele appliances, a six-burner stove and a breakfast bar with seating for four. A butler's pantry with a wine refrigerator is also situated between the home's kitchen and dining room.
Living areas in the home include a play room with a turret ceiling and built-in bench seating; an English walnut chapel with vaulted ceilings; a third-story library with antique cherry wood floors and 200-year-old English elm beams; and a study with a fireplace and mahogany walls featuring gold-leaf trim.
The estate's basement is complete with a large room with a full kitchen and French doors that open to the lush backyard and serves as an indoor/outdoor entertaining area; a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest apartment with a kitchenette; a screening room with theater-style seating for 12; and a fully equipped exercise room with a sauna.
Additional amenities include a hospital-grade air filtration system that purifies the home of allergens; radiant heating with a forced hot air system; a control room containing dashboards for the lighting, alarm, temperature, air and audio-visual systems within the home; an onsite well that maintains the property's lawn; and an automatic snow- and ice-melting system in the driveway and in all the walkways.
Behind the property, a brook sits flush to the lawn, creating separation and privacy. A separate one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest apartment with a kitchenette also sits above a two-car garage, which is adjacent to the home's attached three-car garage.
Located in the heart of Ridgewood, New Jersey, the estate is minutes from the shops, cafés and restaurants that make up downtown Ridgewood. Just 20 miles from Midtown Manhattan, New York City is also easily accessible from the home, which is one mile from the Ridgewood stop on New Jersey Transit. Ridgewood, known for its top-tier public and private schools, is located in Bergen County, one of the wealthiest counties in the United States according to the latest US Census Report.
