It's been eight months, but Queen Latifah's gorgeous Colts Neck estate is still on the market. The rapper turned actress put the opulent home up for sale in January.
With a now-reduced price tag of $2,349,999, the estate boasts 7,000 sq. ft. of open living space with 6 bedrooms and 9+ acres of land that includes a heated infinity pool. You can view it here.
Queen Latifah (her real name is Dana Owens) now spends a good part of her time in Los Angeles, where she hosts her own talk show. Latifah, who has starred in the movie Chicago and TV show Living Single, is a native New Jerseyan who was born in Newark. Her biggest album to date has been 2007's Trav'lin' Light.
She bought the home, which has 5 bathrooms and 3 half baths, for $2.14 million after it was built in 2001, according to NorthJersey.com. It boasts 23 rooms including a great room, gourmet kitchen, library, master bedroom suit, decks off the first and second floor, and an exercise room with a whirlpool tub. There is also a games room with a wet bar. The outdoor Olympic-size pool includes a tented pavilion. You'll find gleaming hardwood floors throughout the lovely home and a five-car garage that's heated.
Colts Neck is a fantastic area with many estates and horse farms. The community is known as one of New Jersey's most affluent regions. Strict zoning has ensured urban development is at a minimal level. There is plenty of shopping nearby and other great amenities and Colts Neck is just 20 minutes from the gorgeous beaches in Allenhurst on the Atlantic Coast.
Colts Neck is New Jersey's most affluent communities and also one of its most private areas.
