Chateau de Grenouille, 125 lake end road, new jersey, the menard group

Located right on the shores of Green Pond–known as the cleanest lake in New Jersey–and just 35 miles outside of NYC, this custom property is asking $1.75 million (h/t CIRCA). Everything here is unique, from the stonework, wrought iron gates, deck and stone patio around the property, to the two-story glass conservatory inside. There’s even a separate apartment for guests, so the property sleeps 16 people total. It’s surely a destination that’ll lure New Yorkers out of the city.

Celebrities, Chelsea, Cool Listings

Actor Matthew Morrison of “Glee” fame must really want to part ways with his Chelsea condo because he and his wife Renee have just listed the two-bedroom at 540 West 28th Street for $2.495 million, according to People, barely more than the $2.25 million they bought it for in 2014. The couple was using the two-bedroom corner unit as a pied-a-terre while Morrison starred on Broadway in “Finding Neverland” from 2015-2016, but after welcoming their first child, a son named Revel, four months ago, they may be looking to reprioritize.
