Ready, Set, Play: Luxury Recreational Spaces for Kids of All Ages
Ahead of the 2018 World Series, Luxury Defined tours 10 homes with world-class amenities for sports and recreation
There are 30 teams in Major League Baseball, and each of them played 162 games in the 2018 season. But only two teams will prevail to play in the World Series. Baseball’s most celebrated and prestigious championship has been delighting (and heartbreaking) fans since 1903. In honor of the October Classic, Luxury Defined spotlights half a score of homes for sports’ enthusiasts of all ages and stripes. From the great American pastime itself or other worthy pursuits, such as basketball, American football, golf, tennis, squash, soccer, swimming, showjumping, and, for those who take a laid-back approach to recreation, fly-fishing and yoga. These luxury estates offer the pure pleasure of beautifully designed, dedicated recreation spaces for family and friends. Let the games commence.
Inspired by the country houses of England, River Oak Farm has an idyllic setting on 43+ private acres along New Jersey’s Ramapo River, which are surrounded by 9,000 acres of preserved land. The estate boasts world-class amenities for the equestrian and sports fan. There’s a regulation sports pitch, which is chalked to NFL standards; an indoor basketball court; three sports lounges; indoor and outdoor pools; hiking and riding trails, and an equestrian facility with a 20-stall barn, five paddocks, and an indoor arena. The seven-bedroom manor house also includes an English pub decorated with walls of sporting memorabilia, a gym, and a spa with massage area.
