Craig McCarthy of NJ.com has posted the following article regarding the sale of the Kean Estate in Livingston NJ:

The Kean estate, a 30-room stone mansion that has undergone extensive renovations over the last two decades, sold Wednesday for $6.2 million, the realtor said.

Its taxes are estimated at $95,320 per year, according to Zillow.

The property also boasts a six-car garage, in-ground pool, tennis court, garden house and indoor squash court. The closing set a record for the highest sale price and Livingston and second highest in Essex County. Realtor Tony Verducci made the record-breaking sale.

Living in Livingston Just Became Even More Prestigious

Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, one of New Jersey’s leading luxury real estate firms, announced today that Sales Associate Anthony “Tony" Verducci has sold one of Livingston’s most prestigious properties, the Kean Estate. The home closed at $6.2 million, making it the highest sales price in Livingston and second highest sales price in Essex County.

Distinguished as the original home to Congressman Robert W. Kean, father of 48th New Jersey governor Thomas Kean, the 30 room stone mansion sits on over 5 acres with sweeping lawns and breathtaking western views from the highest point in Livingston. No expense was spared in restoring this grand estate which boasts 14 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 15 fireplaces, 2 full kitchens and an elevator. Gold gilded moldings; soaring barrel, coffered, dome and tray ceilings; intricate marble and wood flooring; marble baths and a 13-foot high mahogany library are among the many elegant features throughout the residence. The grounds also include an expansive circular drive, in-ground pool, tennis court, garden house, indoor squash court and 6-car tandem garage.

Both marketed and sold by Tony Verducci, the Kean Estate went under contract within 25 days of Tony joining Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty. His local knowledge, personalized service and marketing expertise have attributed to his track record and continued success within the company. With a particular focus on towns along the NJ Transit Midtown Direct train line, Tony has also exclusively listed an estate in Summit for $7,688,000.

Be Wendy Williams's neighbor: Livingston's Kean estate on market for $7.88M

What's the Hot Topic in Wendy Williams's Livingston neighborhood? The historic 30-room Kean estate that once took in more than 300 acres from the highest point in town is on the market for $7.88 million after an extensive renovation.

This century-old stone mansion, the longtime home of 10-term U.S. Rep. Robert W. Kean (the father of former Gov. Thomas Kean), is impressive enough in its sheer numbers -- 14 bedrooms, seven full bathrooms, 15 fireplaces, and two full kitchens, according to the Zillow.com listing. (And speaking of sheer numbers, taxes are $95,320 a year, adjusted from 2013's $153, 442.)

But its current owners, who purchased the property in 1997, also spent years restoring the home, which now features custom gilded moldings, Venetian plaster walls, Corinthian-style pillars, hand-painted murals, and coffered, tray and domed ceilings -- the marketing materials dub it "Versailles in Livingston." The 5-acre estate also includes a pool, tennis court, garden house, indoor squash court and 6-car tandem garage.

And Williams as a neighbor! The unabashedly big-mouthed talk show host bought her home a couple of blocks away (but only a few hundred feet as the crow flies) in 2009 for $2.1 million.

The Kean Estate is listed by Tony Verducci. Read the full article here: Be Wendy William's Livingston Neighbor
