Properties In This Neighborhood

Welcome to Alpine

The pinnacle of privacy and an exclusive, ultra-luxe lifestyle.

The small suburban Alpine community is tucked into New Jersey's extreme northeastern corner, just across the Hudson River from Yonkers and only a 30-minute drive into Manhattan. At first glance, Alpine appears similar to any other semi-rural bedroom community—large homes on even larger lots with swaths of open space and minimal commercial development to avoid spoiling the bucolic setting.

Venture deeper into this borough of around 2,000 residents, across its narrow, meandering roads, and the community reveals its true nature as it unfurls underneath a thick forest canopy. The homes are not large but massive, with many surpassing palatial status. And every 500 yards or so, a clearing covered in well-manicured dirt, where another grand estate is sure to emerge.

Regularly lauded as one of the nation's most exclusive, high-dollar addresses, Alpine is a favorite among celebrities. Jay-Z and Eddie Murphy are former residents. Chirs Rock and Stevie Wonder are current long-term homeowners. Deep-pocketed private citizens also make a home in Alpine for much the same reason as the stars—they value privacy above everything else.

What to Love

  • Secluded estate living along the Hudson River less than 45 minutes from Manhattan Island and Newark International Airport
  • Sprawling plots of land, most a minimum of two acres, perfect for the home of your dreams with room to spare
  • Relatively low tax rate thanks to limited municipal services in favor of private providers

Local Lifestyle

Situated along the Palisades and isolated from the rest of Bergen County by imposing geographic features, a resident's lifestyle is often dictated by how they choose to occupy themselves behind the walls of their estate.

That said, any semblance of a hurried lifestyle is non-existence in Alpine. The homes may be opulent, but the high-wattage occupants and the everyday homeowners specifically bought here to embrace the rustic elegance that permeates the air. Alpine is comfortable, familiar, and relaxing. Most of all, it's private.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Part of the allure of Alpine, especially for its A-list roster of homeowners, is that it's well removed from any meaningful public or commercial places of interest. If the goal is to escape the bright lights of the big city or the flashbulbs of a paparazzo's camera, few better retreats exist than Alpine's secluded, forest citadel.

Some of the best dining and entertainment in Alpine occurs within the celebrity homes' residential kitchens and dining and living spaces. If you're extended an invitation, you're either an A-lister yourself or have been an extremely good neighbor.

Fine dining and international fare are closer than you think should you venture out. Favorite eateries include Kiku Hibachi Grill and Sushi Bar, just north of Alpine's residential area. In neighboring Norwood, Dimora serves elegant Italian in a setting to match. 

If the borough of Alpine were a restaurant, it would look and feel like the outstanding 130 Club in Tenafly. And for those who don't mind a 15-minute trek north into neighboring New York State, the 9W Market provides an eclectic dining experience and onsite bakery perfect for indulging after your meal.

Things to Do

Buying a home in Alpine often means acquiring an amazing set of amenities. A pool, tennis court, playground, movie theater, or whole floor recreational areas are part of the deal. But even those owning such a glamourous set of amenities get cabin fever. Alpine features several cures for such a condition.

Golfers marvel at the A.W. Tillinghast-designed Alpine Country Club and the less-storied but magnificently manicured Montammy Golf Club. Both clubs feature tennis, dining, and social memberships. 

Alpine is also home to New Jersey's Palisades Interstate Park, a 2,500 acre, 12 miles long by half a mile wide stretch of Hudson River shorefront, cliffs, and uplands. Open year-round for recreation, the park includes the popular Alpine Lookout NJ and more than 30 miles of hiking, biking, and ski trails.

Alpine is home to several excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include:

  • Academy of Holy Angels, Private All-Girls School, 6th through 12th grade; ranked as a top-five girls school in New Jersey.
  • Alpine Public School, Public, K through 8th grade; ranked as second-best middle school and third-best elementary in New Jersey
