Perched on First Mountain in charming Upper Montclair, this impressive cliff hanging contemporary residence is built on a forested lot and is designed to use physical height as its key asset, boasting expansive breathtaking views of the New York City skyline and the 150-acre nature preserve that borders the property. The mood is set for a connection to nature and distance from the bustle of the city, even though this mountain retreat is only a short drive from Manhattan and is conveniently connected to it by direct trains to Penn station and frequent bus service. Like a traditional tree house, the experience is all about elevation as the house is focused upward through four levels and seems to defy the laws of space. Kitchen, dining room, living room, master bedroom, library and 2-3 more bedrooms are encountered in sequence as one moves upward through the structure. Balconies enhance the top 3 floors and, on the top floor, a wooden patio is nestled at the edge of the nature preserve. The home is designed with function in mind with ample open space for living and working. The open interior floor plan wraps around the tower that encloses the massive spiral staircase illuminated by the top windows, an amazing domed skylight, and a vintage chandelier from the Guggenheim museum. Aside from the dominance of the wood that is used both for the exterior and the amazing interior paneling, the inside of the house is accented by beautiful stone work and 3 working slate floor-to-ceiling fireplaces. This home unites cabin charm with modern living creating a comfortable yet contemporary place to live. Perfect for artists or for those who are looking for a large unique residence near Manhattan.

This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
