One of New Jersey’s most expensive homes now is 75% off.

According to a recent New York Post report, the 1920s home that was once listed for $39 million is back on the market with a sticker price of $10 million. The home has experienced several price cuts over the past five years, previously lowered to $24 million, $17 million, and $12 million.

In Englewood, New Jersey, the property is just 5 miles from Manhattan. The eight-bedroom, 14-bath home sits on 5 acres of private property and includes a home theater and a gym, along with several spiral staircases.

The mansion is the latest on a long list of real-estate price cuts this year, including an empty Los Angeles hilltop plot and a Florida vacation home.

Business Insider’s Katie Warren previously reported that people aren’t buying mansions in Greenwich, Connecticut — another wealthy ZIP code not far from Manhattan — and that many millennials, unlike baby boomers, are not interested in owning large homes.

Here’s a look at the Gloria Crest estate.

Known as the Gloria Crest estate, the mansion is in the East Hill neighborhood of Englewood, New Jersey. The town is in Bergen County, one of the richest areas in the state, and is conveniently 5 miles from Manhattan — just across the Hudson River from Washington Heights and a 20-minute drive from Central Park.
