Friday Mish-Mash: Sean Combs Lists Jersey Mansion

Music and entertainment mogul Sean Combs–or P. Fiddle or Daddy Diddle or Puffy Poppa or whatever damn name he calls himself nowdays–heaved his big ol' mansion in supah-swank Alpine, NJ on the market with an asking price of $13,500,000.

Mister Daddy Puff purchased the 3.25 acre estate in the celebrity friendly 'hood in July 2004 for, according to prop records, $6,000,000. Listing information for the approximately 17,000 square foot red brick center hall Colonial shows it contains 26 rooms total with 7 bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms.

Celebrity-style amenities include a swimming pool with waterfall, spa, tennis court, fitness room, movie theater, garaging for at least 6 cars, and an indoor squash court.

New Jersey gets a bad rap–can you say Real Housewives of New Jersey and Jersey Shore?–but the tiny enclave of Alpine consistently ranks among the top most expensive zip codes in the country. Some of the other past and present residents of Alpine include The Jonas Brothers, comedians Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock, and lady rapper/plastic surgery aficionado 'Lil Kim.

It may be New Jersey but you are not finding a whole town with high acreage properties so close to Manhattan.

Yeah, Lil Kim...lol....

I wouldn't consider even looking for " a whole town..." so close to Manhattan. I would rather look north to New England where the art and orchestras are better than Joizy.

Alpine really has nothing to do with New Jersey even though it is located there. I mean, no buys there because they want to live in New Jersey. Its all about the proximity to Manhattan.

The Atlantic is in close proximity to Manhattan and I wouldn't want to live in it either.

10:24 -- actually alpine and nearby englewood have a looong tradition of old money people living there (frick, mellon, rockefeller, morgan, forbes) and the whole small influx of hip hop people (in alpine) is fairly recent.
It's laughable when people who have no clue about the place criticize NJ. Take a look at the social register and see how many addresses are in NJ.

Everyone commenting is just jealous they can't get to live in NJ and hang out with Snookie and The Situation. Am I right?

NJ is one of the top 3 richest, most educated states in the country (between NJ, Conn. and Maryland)

So yes, you're jealous!! Rather snookie than the Cholas in Losthirdworld Angeles!
