From the New Jersey Market ReportFor even well-off Manhattanites, the dream of raising a family in a traditional single-family home with a white picket fence, minivan, puppy and two or more children often becomes a reality only in the more spacious suburbs of Northern New Jersey.

But that doesn’t mean the price tags aren’t hefty. At the most expensive end of the spectrum, Bergen County — the state’s most populous and most affluent area — has seen its share of luxury real estate hit the market. Many of these palatial homes come equipped with acres of land, gated pools and surfeit bedrooms and bathrooms.

The two most expensive properties to trade hands in the past year — both in Alpine and less than four miles apart — were a 22-room brick manor at 44 Rio Vista Drive that sold for $13.9 million in July 2015 and a 21-room stone chateau at 5 Buckingham Drive that sold for $11 million that same month.

But many of these luxury listings are lingering on the market. Among the top single-family residences for sale in New Jersey as of May, homes in Bergen have seen the biggest price cuts in the past year. [more]
