The Michelle Pais Group Signature Realty NJThe ‘White House of Englewood’ is on the market for $US10 million.

One of New Jersey’s most expensive homes now is 75% off.

According to a recent New York Post report, the 1920s home that was once listed for $US39 million is back on the market with a sticker price of $US10 million. The home has experienced several price cuts over the past five years, previously lowered to $US24 million, $US17 million, and $US12 million.

In Englewood, New Jersey, the property is just 5 miles from Manhattan. The eight-bedroom, 14-bath home sits on 5 acres of private property and includes a home theatre and a gym, along with several spiral staircases.

The mansion is the latest on a long list of real-estate price cuts this year, including an empty Los Angeles hilltop plot and a Florida vacation home.

Known as the Gloria Crest estate, the mansion is in the East Hill neighbourhood of Englewood, New Jersey. The town is in Bergen County, one of the richest areas in the state, and is conveniently 5 miles from Manhattan — just across the Hudson River from Washington Heights and a 20-minute drive from Central Park.
