There's no shortage of expensive houses in our area, especially as you get closer to the ocean (like this one on Long Beach Island or this one in Brigantine), but it is fun to see what $3.5 million looks like in a rural part of our area.

Out on the Estell Manor-Maurice River Township border, where the average house sells for about $178,000, is a $3.5 million beast of a house...

Looking for privacy, beauty and gracious living all in one package? This magnificent home has 5br, 5 1/2ba, 5 fireplaces...  Chef's kitchen w/8 burner Bluestar stove, 2 Sub Zero r/f, 2 wall ovens, 2d.w and warming drawer. Butler pantry, bar, library, reg & formal DR, parlor, the list goes on. Garden Room overlooks the english garden, bluestone terrace, inground pool & pergola. 8-10 stall barn. All surrounded on 2 sides by the Tuckahoe River and 5000' of fence.

5,000 feet of fence? I don't think I've ever seen what a 5,000 feet of fence looks like. Anyway, all of that can be yours for a cool $3.5 million, or about $13,000/month (assuming you have $700,000 for a down payment).
