Best-known as the former co-host of the popular “Boomer and Carton” sports radio show, Craig Carton has recently been brought back down to earth with a bump. Last month he was forced to step down from his position with the radio station having been charged with securities and wire fraud. He is currently fighting concert ticket Ponzi scheme related charges calling them “unfounded”. What is evident is the long and expensive legal battle ahead which has forced him to place his $2.4 million mansion on the market.
Chester Township, New Jersey
The large mansion is located in Chester Township, New Jersey and while Craig Carton may not be a recognised figure outside of the sports market, he has done very well for himself. His $2.4 million mansion is situated on 4.39 acres of prime property offering six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and two half baths. There is also an in-law suite with a separate entrance and kitchenette just in case you don’t get on with your in-laws!
Built back in 2009 this is a steel beam and stone construction which is perfect for the open plan design and the many luxuries this mansion contains.
Approaching the house
This house is beautiful from the outside with a delicately designed driveway, double garages and a look which is modern, stylish and extremely eye-catching. Even before you step into the property you have an idea of the size, the number of rooms and above all the space.
Relaxing living room
As with so many rooms around the house, there are large windows for natural light and doors which open out onto the outside decking area. The cream/white colouring, the light brown leather chairs and the wooden distressed table look offer a very relaxing atmosphere. There is also a large screen TV above the fireplace so you can put your feet up and catch your favourite TV programmes.
While there is a separate dining room, the kitchen is so large that there is an eating area in the centre where traditionally we often find the kitchen island. The shelves and cupboards are light brown in colour, the floor is a lighter shade of brown and we can see the top quality marble tops. Hanging down above the eating area is a modern chandelier type light and you have all of the modern day equipment and utensils you require to cater for a party or a family event.
Formal dining area
The formal dining area seats eight people round a distressed wood like table with a “unique” chandelier of candles hanging down from the ceiling. For some reason the wall is adorned with clocks of all shapes and sizes and while very formal it also looks a very relaxing area. We have seen many different celebrity dining areas over the weeks and months but nothing quite like this.
Life of luxury
Aside from the grand entry foyer, wood panelled library and five fireplaces this property also boasts a walkout basement with exercise room, full bath and access to the outdoor heated saltwater pool. There is also a 12 seater home theatre, two games rooms and a sports court which is probably what you would expect from a sports radio presenter. It is fair to say that Craig Carton has placed his own unique stamp on this property and will probably be very sad to see it go.
