Whoever buys this would have to be a billionaire that's outside of the country and looking to park their cash in the U.S. It would cost close to a million a year to maintain a property like this.

The reporter made a mistake.  It was Henry Clay Frick II not III who lived on that property and died.  In 2007 in fact.  And this house will NEVER Sell for that kind of money.  Look at Bob Hope's houses.  His house in Palm Springs was listed for 50 million.  It sold for 13 million.  His main home in Toluca Lake which is HUGE was listed for 23 million and is now down to 12 million.
Goals!!!

I live in the town very near alpine called tenafly. A lot of people call it alpine 2.0 because it also has very large homes and a similar crowd alpine has. Some people may think that they make it look bigger on camera but it’s actually that size. My family went to look at it cause were interested in moving and it was HUGE! No joke I almost got lost And btw it still hasn’t been sold

What the Henry clay FRICK do you need a house that expensive for in New Jersey? If you have $50 million retire to someplace tropical. No wonder this has been on the market for 5 years!

Plus the mortgage payment if you don't pay cash! Can you imagine what the gas or oil bill would be in the winter months to heat that thing? Or the electric bill in the summer for the air conditioning? And the staff needed to run it?  It makes me wonder who could afford that kind of money?  Not doctors or lawyers, that's for sure.  Not even some of the pro football or baseball players who live in the area have that much.   Perhaps some high level Wall Street executive but I don't even think former NJ governor Corzine or the new one coming in Murphy has THAT much money  And they were both Wall Street execs.

Big, cold, ugly house.  Wealth doesn't always mean good taste.  Who needs a house this cold and steril?
RetroGuy76 (8 days ago)
I agree brah!  It would be like living in one of those corporate buildings where people work 14 hours a day and all the services are right in the building for them.  Once her kids were married and out, my grandmother built a cute little house in an association community.  Only 4 rooms and a bathroom.  But I remember it being SO cozy on cold winter nights and so happy with the whole family there on holidays.  And also full of love.  You'd need an awful big family to fill THAT place!
Mike Tayon (26 days ago)
Imagine all the other costs associated with this property! You would have to have a TEAM of gardeners for example. A maintenance TEAM, maid staff, chef and kitchen staff, a general manager or two, etc etc! Oh, and of course, a security TEAM! WOW!
Barking Spider (7 days ago)
Mike Tayon when you have that much money that is already none and factored into the price of the investment. Like buying a yacht for example.
RetroGuy76 (8 days ago)
Well, perhaps not a chef.  But yes, if not a gardner a good landscaping company which would cost a fortune.  Definitely a housekeeper who would bring in other people (can you imagine what it takes just to clean those chandeliers alone) and probably some kind of maintenance man.  As for security, I think they would just have cameras and sensors, etc.

$10 says these owners don't pay many taxes despite being in a very Liberal state.
RetroGuy76 (8 days ago)
Well, the new owner can always go online and take a course and get a certificate saying he's a minister and then claim the property as a church or monastery and not pay ANY taxes!

RetroGuy76 I really don’t know where to start on your comment. I'll just leave it alone.
RetroGuy76 (7 days ago)
Barking Spider   There may be homes in Alpine for that price but are they actually SELLING for that price?  And who could afford 300K in property taxes every year?  I don't even think that limousine liberal Murphy who is going to be governor next week could afford that!  Especially since he's going to raise his own (and everyone else's) taxes.  And I'm willing to be the house was constructed in a hurry with shoddy materials which will lead to trouble down the line. Even Bob Hope's house on Pebble Beach which is like ultra exclusive was on the market for 50 million and ended up being sold for only 13 million!
Barking Spider (7 days ago)
RetroGuy76 hell no dude. Way to cheap. There are many homes in the area that are that price. That would be a major steal.

These MORONS who build these airports pathetically trying to masquerade as single family "homes" are all hopelessly obsessed and possessed by the EVIL afflictions of ego, materialism and GREED UNBOUNDED. I'm all for big, not huge homes but the 1 percenters and their gargantuan monstrosities that they build and live in (maybe a few months out of every year and sell after owning for just a few years) today are RESOUNDINGLY REVOLTING. The interviewer asked the interviewee "Is this too much house" and of course, instead of being HONEST he responded with a ridiculous linen of bull. I hope it never sells and the developer learns a HUGELY painful financial lesson. It's STILL FOR SALE today.

It was built, and has been empty since then listed first at 68million, now listed at 48.880 million, that's a 20million cut. Interestingly enough is that the property has been removed from Zillow on December 31 but is still listed on Sotheby's. the property adjacent to it was also removed from Zillow. Simple fact is; the house is too big.

FRANKLY SPEAKING, AS A GUY LIVING IN NEW JERSEY, I DON'T THINK THIS HOUSE SHOULD SELL FOR MORE THAN 18 TO 20 MILLION DOLLARS. OURS IS A 14000 SQUARE FEET MANSION IN MONMOUTH COUNTY, IT DID COST US 4.25 MILLION DOLLARS
Chris (1 year ago)
maintenance would be ridiculous., I can be barely bothered cleaning my room. imagine cleaning this whole house every month.. and then the gardening. No thanks. you'd need another 50mil to keep this abomination going without it going to shit. Just changing all the light bulbs alone wouldn't be cheap.

It's a nice house that managed to not look as gaudy as most of the other Jersey mcmansions next to it. It does not look like it's worth 50 million though. Maybe they spent it all on the gold faucets :p

Andrew Armstrong  No thanks dude.  I'm not an outdoorsy "into the wild" kind of guy.  The beach (at the ocean that is) is about it for me.  Plus I like having access to things one cannot get "out in the wild" like the best medical care and a society that believes that the Constitution applies to ALL people. Where else do you get that other than the northeast and the west coast?  Besides, SOME of us have to stay back east just to keep things going! LOL!

Earn some cash and head out into the wild, worked fantastic for me. I don't care to see either of them again, as I was born and raised on the lower eastside of Manhattan, I'm a former New Yorker for life!
RetroGuy76 (5 days ago)
Andrew Armstrong  Usually the move to Jersey has to do with the amount of space for the price, the school system and the overall safety if you have children.  The problem with Jersey is the politicians (particularly the corrupt democrats) who drive up the taxes.  The problem with NYC is the gentrification due mostly to MY generation which is driving up the rental costs.
Andrew Armstrong (5 days ago)
For someone who does all their business in NYC why Jersey? I mean two hours in a limo,1 in a copter, if they let you go. Jersey and NYC have about the same ridiculous tax rate cause both of them forgot how this country started. Not worth the cost to me.

Biggest lie from the realtor: "less than 30 minutes from downtown Manhattan." That's interesting, because we live in the first town over the GWB in NJ (Fort Lee), and it still takes 15-30 mins on average just to get over the bridge to UPPER Manhattan. Driving up to Alpine from Fort Lee takes another 10 minutes in of itself. Even if you were commuting at 2AM in no traffic, you could "possibly" do it in 45 minutes. During rush hour? Try 1 1/2 hours or more.
Tony Davidson (10 days ago)
The whole idea of "driving to Manhattan" for work every day is a joke --- unless you leave the house at 3AM or your workplace and house are both at opposite ends of a bridge going to the island

They're getting a new governor next week which has promised to raise everyone's taxes (which are already the highest in the nation), legalize pot and designate the state as a "sanctuary state."  So what's so bad about the "scumbucket" as you call him that's in there now?
