It’s definitely not what you’d expect to see in the suburbs just a few miles from the New Jersey shore, but an over-the-top luxurious log cabin in Freehold Township is the week’s most popular home on realtor.com®.
According to the listing agent, Howard Schneider, the cabin is something of a local landmark.
“Everyone in the area knows it,” he says. “And this is the first time it’s been on the market.”
The owners built the 6,000-square-foot home in the style of a Colorado ski chalet. Best of all? They added a private saloon for entertaining friends and family. But after a decade of enjoying the cabin, they plan to retire to Florida. They’re now listing their home for $1,579,000.
Other homes making a dent on our list this week include the New York compound of Orange County Choppers founder Paul Teutul, an immaculate midcentury modern ranch in Georgia, and an Ohio home recently rescued from demolition that’s practically free to any buyer willing to hook up the utilities.

Just minutes from downtown Chattanooga, this four-bedroom Tudor from 1920 has been well-maintained and now has a newer roof. There’s more than 2,300 square feet of living space. The 1,500-square-foot lower level is currently being used as a combination storage and office space.
Price: $1,650,000 Why it’s here: Currently owned by Orange County Choppers founder Paul Teutul, this 38-acre private compound has been on the market for 18 months. After a series of price cuts, there’s still no sign of a buyer ready to motor off with a bargain.
Price: $2,900 Why it’s here: It’s all about the jaw-dropping price tag—most of which will be reimbursed by the bank once utilities are reconnected. Built in 1917, the three-bedroom home was recently removed from a demo list, according to the listing details. Now it’s being offered—practically for free—to a buyer willing to give the place some much-needed love.
Price: $79,500 Why it’s here: This charming two-bedroom stone bungalow was built in 1930 and is chock-full of charming touches, like arched doorways, built-ins throughout, a stone fireplace, and original lighting.

Price: $424,900 Why it’s here: This historic stone farmhouse was built in 1714 and still has the original hardwood floors, two fireplaces, and exposed beams. Sitting on 1 acre, the eight-bedroom home is being sold as is, and includes a two-car garage, an outhouse with skylights (which can be used as a potting shed), an office, and large studio, all just a short distance from downtown Media.
Price: $1,579,000 Why it’s here: This enormous, custom log cabin is a bit of a local landmark, according to the listing agent, Howard Schneider. The four-bedroom, 6,000-square-foot home was built in 2009, and was designed to make the owners feel as if they’d just got off the ski slopes of Colorado. However, it is in fact located in the wilds of central New Jersey. Details, details!
Showstopping features include 30-foot beamed ceilings, fireplaces, and—our favorite detail!—a private saloon for entertaining. The luxe cabin is definitely unlike other homes in the area and has drawn quite a bit of interest from buyers and curious neighbors alike.
