Description: It's called Stone Mansion, and that's an apt description. It features granite walls, limestone window frames and a slate roof. Interior touches include rare wood floors and doors, intricate metalwork and vaulted and coffered ceilings.

There's an indoor basketball court with 23-foot ceilings, a wine cellar that holds 3,500 bottles, grand reception rooms, tennis court, pool. You name it, it's got it.

It's located in Alpine, N.J., an extremely upscale, quiet community just 18 miles or so from Times Square and on the gated grounds of the former Frick Estate. The current owner, Richard Kurtz, said it feels like being far out in the country with deer, fox and wild turkeys being regular visitors.
