Luxury real estate of the week: a $2.49 million contemporary Saddle River home


How gorgeous is this modern home?

Many of the pricey homes that hit the Bergen County real estate market tend to be traditional in style or a throwback to a more European abode. But, this week is all about contemporary beauty. And we’re heading out of Alpine for the first time in a little while, and instead checking out a stunning modern home in Saddle River.

The 6,000-square-foot, five-bedroom, six-bathroom home for $2.49 million is situated on a gorgeous 2.19-acre parcel of land at the end of a cul-de-sac in the heart of north Jersey. You’ll instantly be transported as you are greeted by a lily and fish pond at the entrance complete with waterfalls. Then, the grand entrance leads to an open circular staircase that is more reminiscent of a museum than a home.

Perhaps that’s because it was designed by the renowned Alfredo De Video Architects of New York. Some of the beautiful details of the house include cathedral ceilings and over 120 windows “designed to let in natural light and a unique open floor plan.” The lucky home owner will also get three gas fireplaces, five-zone heating, a heated in-ground pool and, of course, a cabana. In addition, the library has custom cabinetry and is part of the master bedroom suite, which has a fireplace, steam shower and whirlpool.

If you want your home to be a piece of art, then look no further. And did we mention it’s just as stunning during the night time as it does during the day? You’ll never want to leave.
