The most expensive home in New Jersey is a sprawling, $29.5 million estate that includes an outdoor infinity pool, an English-style pub and private movie theater, an indoor riding arena, a soccer field, and other lavish amenities.

And it's only about 25 miles from New York City.

"It's a breathtaking sanctuary within 30 minutes of Manhattan," Vicki Gaily, listing agent and founder of Special Properties Real Estate Services, told Business Insider.

The property, called the River Oak Farm, sits on 46 acres of land in Mahwah that includes athletic fields, horse paddocks, hiking trails, ponds, and mountain views of the Manhattan skyline. Mahwah was recently ranked as one of the best places to live in New Jersey.

The current homeowner, who wished to remain anonymous for privacy reasons, describes the property as "46 acres of complete privacy and seclusion" and "the perfect retreat for those who wish to escape the hustle and bustle of Manhattan" in an email.

Although it's the most expensive home in New Jersey, the Mahwah house is listed for a whopping $215.5 million less than the most expensive home in the country, a $245 million mansion in Los Angeles that costs 960 times more than a typical US home.

Here's a look at the New Jersey property.
