Sale in Alpine, New Jersey, Comes Out on Top in February 2013
Sotheby’s International Realty just released its top sales from around the world in February 2013. The residence pictured at left, in Alpine, N.J., was the top sale at $13,375,000 — no surprise for those of you who know a little about Alpine. This hamlet in Bergen County is just 15 miles from midtown Manhattan, and in 2012 Forbes magazine named it “America’s Most Expensive Zip Code” with a median home sales price of $4.25 million.
An impressive Tudor-style home on 2.6 acres overlooking San Francisco Bay was the next highest sales among SIR offices, listed at $13 million. Two sales in Miami, both around $7,500,000, and a sale near Greenwich, Conn., rounded out the top five sales for this past February. See the complete list of top sales here.
