Bon Jovi Lists His Robert A.M. Stern-Designed Estate in New Jersey
Jersey boy Jon Bon Jovi has proudly represented his state in the music industry for years, even naming an entire album after it. Unsurprisingly, the rockstar owns an impressive chateau there that may be the finest home in Monmouth County. Designed by renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern, who gave New York City many of its iconic buildings, the newly listed High Point Estate is a treasure.
Located on 15 pristine acres right near Manhattan, the property’s masterful design may transport a new owner far away to France. The 18,000-square-foot main house is adorned with opulent French-inspired details like wrought iron accents, mullioned windows, and romantic balconies. Brick courtyards are another lavish highlight, making the home feel like an Old World mansion.
Though the main manor is the star, the property holds four structures in total. Each has a story to tell. A charming carriage house offers private quarters for guests while a unique building dubbed the “Shoe Inn” pub is all about entertaining. It feels like going to a local hotspot with a pool table, lounge area, fireplace, and imported period bar to keep the French theme going.
A custom masterpiece, it seems unfathomable that someone would want to part ways with this home. Perhaps Bon Jovi is now spending more time in the Hamptons after coming out with his rosé brand Hampton Water two years ago.
For sale with no price publicly marketed, the estate offers a total of six bedrooms, seven full baths, and two half baths. Gloria Nilson and Kathleen Coumou of Christie’s International Real Estate have the listing.
