Storied Bluff Estate Up for Auction
Guernsey’s Auction House and Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty are proud to present this amazing home in the Bluff section of Fort Lee, NJ, up for auction on June 8th, with a minimum price of $5.5 million.
75 Bluff Road, which is currently owned by Arthur Imperatore, Sr., owner of the NY Waterway Ferry, has a storied history. Previously owned by Albert Anastasia, the head of Murder Incorporated, this 1.3-acre property with beautiful Hudson River views is nothing short of magnificent. The 25-room estate is set far back on the cliff, at the end of a long, gated driveway and amidst park-like landscaping. Its proximity to New York City and private setting made it the ideal location for many high profile owners and gangster gatherings through the years.
This unique home, built in 1947 boasts a large patio with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline, a glass-enclosed sun room, wood-paneled library, kitchen with breakfast room and butler’s pantry, dining room, den and plenty of closet space on the first floor alone. Take the sweeping staircase up to the second floor to find a master bedroom suite with his/her dressing rooms, a sitting room and built-in closets, four more bedrooms, four full bathrooms, another den and an enclosed terrace. Basement is full, finished with another kitchen, laundry room, spa with sauna and hot tub, a recreation room, full bathroom, a theater room and plenty of storage space. The grounds are complete with beautiful landscaping, swimming pool, cabana, pool house and garage large enough for more than 2 cars.
This is an amazing opportunity to own a fantastic Italian-style Estate high on the Palisades Cliffs in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
