You’ve built yourself a nice spread out there in Summit County, Ohio: six bedrooms, 33,000 square feet, your own barbershop, aquarium, recording studio, and bowling alley. Your walk-in closet has two flat-screen TVs, a fireplace, and a pole to reach the suits on the upper rack (sounds like a New Yorker to us). We’re not saying you need to give up the homestead. Keep it as a summer place. But Dennis McCormack of Sotheby’s Prominent Properties has gone ahead and picked out a pad for you to live in during the basketball season. It’s the centerpiece of the former Frick Estate (above). It’s across the Hudson, in Alpine, New Jersey, where Sean “Diddy” Combs and the Yankees’ CC Sabathia live. Currently on the market for $57 million, the former home of Henry Clay Frick II is on the only single-family gated street in northern New Jersey. It’s set on 27 acres, has six bedrooms, nine baths, a guest house, an aviary, and a pond, and borders the Alpine Country Club golf course.
And for nights when you feel like staying in the city, here’s a nice little pied-à-terre.
Darren Sukenik of Prudential Douglas Elliman, who has helped a number of “major Yankees” find places in the city, has found you apartment 63A of the Time Warner Center, at 25 Columbus Circle. “No other apartment in Manhattan has a view like this,” says Sukenik. “Sixty-third floor, full city, full park, full river.” The three-bedroom, 3.5-bath unit is on the market for $15 million. For what it’s worth, Tom Brady used to live in the building.
