Back when developers thought rich folks liked columns, a house was built in Alpine, the northern NJ neighborhood that doesn’t have addresses and thus, mail delivery. Richard Kurtz paid $58 Million only 5 years ago for a 60-acre parcel of land, which he had planned to divide into 8 estates for a private community. The showstopper of the home was originally listed for $68 Million. Kurtz owns/manages apartments across the northeast, according to the WSJ, but he clearly has an eye for a good flip when he sees it. Keeping in tradition of homes of the newly rich, this one boasts a tennis court, a whopper of a pool, a few garages, a dozen bedrooms, even more bathrooms and of course, walls covered with Venetian plaster and floors made of French and Italian marble. Just in case someone makes it into the gated community, then into the home and found his way to the wine cellar, the owner wouldn’t have to worry about having a bottle stolen: The refrigerated wine cellar can be accessed only with thumbprint recognition software.
