Stone Palace on the Hill, a 32,507-square-foot mansion at 144 East Saddle River Road in Saddle River, is set to be auctioned from July 23 to July 26, according to a press release from Concierge Auctions. The 6.3-acre estate, previously listed for $29.9 million, includes a glass elevator, a tennis court, a racquetball court, a wine cellar and two swimming pools. Concierge Auctions and Engel & Völkers, the latter a German brokerage that recently opened three new locations in Brooklyn, will oversee the process. Both said the estate will sell without reserve, meaning the property will be sold regardless of its final price. Notable highlights of the Saddle River property include a “grand marble staircase with 24-karat gold-plated bronze decorations,” according to Concierge, as well as a 2,200-square-foot ballroom with floors designed by Italian architect Antonio Rinaldi. The home, reportedly built in 1998, has 12 full bathrooms and four half-bathrooms, a banquet-sized formal dining room that can accommodate up to 22 guests, a commercial-grade glass elevator that services all four floors and an indoor swimming pool, a sauna, wine cellar, home theater, billiards room and a library with a hand-painted canvas ceiling. Separately, the Saddle River estate also comes with a five-bedroom, two-bathroom staff apartment with a private entrance. Alina Pogorelova and Lisa Troyano-Ascolese of Engel & Völkers have the listing for the property. [Concierge Auctions]
