Mary J. Blige’s $12.3 Million Mansion in New Jersey

Mary J Blige

Eight-time Grammy-winner Mary J. Blige just bought a new place in Saddle River, New Jersey. This 4.2-acre home was on the market for $17 million, but the hip-hop artist got it for a bargain when she bought it earlier this month for $12.3. In cash. A source close to Blige told the NY Daily News, “She fell in love with this one,” after looking at several houses in the area.

The 18,250 square-foot stone and stucco country French manor has 8 bedrooms and 8 baths, billiard room, indoor basketball court, wine tasting room, pool, elevator, spiral staircase, and something called a “learning room.” (What do you suppose that is? A creative way of saying “library”? Or a homeschooling room, maybe?)

Some of Blige’s neighbors include other hip-hop artists like Wyclef Jean and Ja Rule.

I like the look of this house, I like the fact that it is actually lived in. The kitchen is much nicer. I like the deep dark colors. White gets dirty to quickly. MJF’s looked like a house for sale. I can’t get a feeling from an empty house. Sorry.

Lynn–the MLS listing mentioned that there was a fireplace in the kitchen, too. I was disappointed that they didn’t have a picture of it!

Amy April 5, 2008 at 5:47 pm

It’s not my style but it’s beautiful. I, too, like MJF’s better but I’ve always loved that style of home.

I could never live in a house like this. I’m always losing small objects. Can you imagine trying to find your car keys? It’d be like ” Which wing were you in when you last saw them? “

That looks more like a ‘don’t touch any thing kids’ kind of
house. You know the house were you spill a glass of
water and your out!

The house is nice in theory but in all practicality it is too can’t walk on the floor for me. Where would I put my harem?

$12 million for a house. I can’t even imagine something like that. It sure looks beautiful from some of the photo samples, though.

Mary’s kitchen is the only thing I like.

Don’t give her too much credit for this house, like they do for her singing.

WHY DO YOU HAVE SUCH A HUGH HOUSE? OPRAH YOU’RE NOT. APPEARANCES IS EVERYTHING TO SOME PEOPLE. I THINK IT’S IN SUCH POOR TASTE TO BUY SOMETHING THAT GAUDY IN THE TIMES WE LIVE IN WITH EVERYBODY LOSING THEIR HOMES AND TRYING TO GET BY. SHAME ON YOU

ELIZABETH June 30, 2010 at 9:59 pm

I HAVE NEVER HEARD YOU SING A NOTE. NOW I NEVER WANT TO.

One thing I have actually noticed is that there are plenty of myths regarding the banking companies intentions whenever talking about foreclosure. One fantasy in particular would be the fact the bank desires your house. The lending company wants your cash, not your home. They want the cash they gave you with interest. Preventing the bank will still only draw the foreclosed conclusion. Thanks for your post.
