Villa Paradiso in Rumson, New Jersey is up for sale at a price of $17.5 million. It’s situated by the Navesink River on nearly three acres of land. This place looks like a Mediterranean-style resort and has about 200 feet of private riverfront along with a huge 20,000-gallon aquarium.
The house itself is a custom-built mansion spanning 7,425 square feet with 26 rooms, nine bathrooms, and six bedrooms.
When you arrive, there are private gates that open up to a long, landscaped driveway leading to a parking area and a garage. As you step inside, a striking entrance connects to open spaces with arched windows and doors offering great views of the beautiful landscaping and the river.
Villa Paradiso was constructed and designed using top-notch materials like Italian granite, Venetian plaster, copper gutters, Jerusalem stone, and Ludowici clay roof tiles.
On the main floor, you’ll find a spacious dining room for 18 people, a grand library, a guest suite, a family room with a fireplace, a breakfast nook, a butler’s pantry, and a custom Italian kitchen filled with modern appliances. The whole floor is wrapped with a terrace and a big staircase that leads to the backyard.
Going up to the second floor, you’ll discover the array of private living quarters. The primary bedroom is in its own section and comes with a terrace overlooking the water, a gym, and a bathroom that feels like a spa. On the other side of the mansion, there are three bedrooms with their own bathrooms and balconies.
There’s also a lower level for entertainment, where you’ll find a movie theater, a wine cellar with space for 1,500 bottles, a custom bar, a billiards and recreation area, and that impressive 20,000-gallon saltwater aquarium that looks like it belongs in a museum. This level connects directly to the pool area and has a second kitchen and a private guest apartment.
Out back, there’s a pool and a hot tub, an outdoor kitchen with a wood-fired pizza oven, and 200 feet of riverfront with a brand-new 75-foot dock that meets EPA standards. The property also includes two separate two-car garages, a greenhouse, and a fish pond.
