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.
Business Insider’s Katie Warren previously reported that people aren’t buying mansions in Greenwich, Connecticut – another wealthy ZIP code not far from Manhattan – and that many millennials, unlike baby boomers, are not interested in owning large homes.
Here’s a look at the Gloria Crest estate.
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.
The mansion, nicknamed the “White House of Englewood,” sits on more than 5 acres of private property, which includes manicured lawns, orchards, gardens, and a small lake.
An iron gate on the grounds opens to reveal a circular driveway …
… that leads up to the massive home. A man who said he was Polish royalty commissioned the mansion in 1926. According to the New York Post, it’s been rumoured that Joseph Kennedy, President John F. Kennedy’s father, once purchased the home for the actress Gloria Swanson.
The foyer is flanked by a double staircase. With marble pillars, gold gilding, and a crystal chandelier, the entryway is a nod to its Roaring ’20s origins.
The home has several living rooms, including a sitting area with grey velvet couches and a modern coffee table.
Each living room is decorated differently. One has a lofted ceiling and a large stone fireplace …

The home also includes nine full baths and five half-baths.
