Welcome to ''Terraces on the Navesink,'' a 20,000 sf chateauesque architectural masterpiece majestically situated on 4.15 lushly landscaped prime riverfront acreage, minutes from pristine beaches, prominent golf/tennis/beach clubs, equestrian/hiking trails and high-speed ferry to NYC. Stately gates open to a stone paver-accented "HEATED" driveway winding amidst ivy drenched terraces replete with flowering specimen trees and gracious evergreens. Hefty Castleton green and bronze-toned slate tiles blanket the dramatic turreted and cupola ornamented roof lines of a limestone and stucco palatial residence fit for modern day royalty. Soaring windows flank solid mahogany carved entrance doors that open to unsurpassed elegance, unparalleled amenities and uncompromising quality. From exotic hardwoods to imported marble, bespoke window treatments to hand-painted vaulted ceilings, everything portrays the unmistakable allure of quality craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail. The 2+storied entrance foyer reveals the stunning focal point of sumptuous living: a 3-storied curved and arched window-walled solarium unveiling awe-inspiring panoramas. Five master sized bedrooms with ensuite baths look out to verdant grounds with water views, each privately situated on two floors. Choose between a 5-storied elevator or private staircases to reach an upper-level brick and pipe NYC style flat or a lower-level caretaker/mother-in-law suite with fully equipped kitchen. Three floors of the gilded give way to three more of gaiety, where family and friends can select from fully reclining lounge chairs to enjoy the latest block-buster in a state of the art movie theatre; or if more energetic, work out in a health-club quality fitness center, complete with sauna and steam shower for speedy workout recovery. Have those intimate gatherings or large scale entertainment venues serviced from a patio-level, professional grade catering kitchen. Shoot a game of pool or pop the cork on some bubblies at one of two hand-carved wet bars. If that's not enough, strike up a friendly bowling match on two pro-alley lanes or perfect your high score in the adjacent arcade room. Splash away no matter the weather in an "under the sea" themed indoor swimming pool after working off some excess energy in a regulation-sized racquetball court. Delight in vacation-style living whether inside or out. Sprawling multi-level patios surround a kidney shaped salt water pool and fountain with elevated spa and cascading waterfalls. Natural stone boulders form terraced walls and steps that lead to gently curved paver paths bordering rolling lawns with perimeter plantings bursting in seasonal color. Find a neatly tucked away organic vegetable/herb garden, or wander to either bookend perch overlooking the sparkling river and Atlantic Ocean beyond. Adventure through several rose-laden terraces on an Ipe wood staircase to a boat dock with oversized power lift, jutting more than one hundred feet into the Navesink River. Along the way, take time for a brief repose at any one of multiple benched observation vistas, as stairs meander through towering holly trees and ivy covered slopes. At dock's end, turn back to behold the commanding presence of this mansion set high on a hill, nestled proudly among "Terraces on the Navesink." A feast for the senses at every turn, this rare offering provides an incredible opportunity for a discriminating buyer!
