Colonia's 'Babbling Brook' is for Sale

One of the most amazing estates ever in Woodbridge Township is up for grabs.

One of the most beautiful houses with spectacular grounds in Woodbridge Township is looking for a buyer.

, the musical-sounding name given to the 14-room Tudor jewel set among 2.7 acres of prime real estate in the Colonia section of the township, will be home to the Zirpolos no more.

The family, which counts among its members a former mayor of Woodbrige in the 1960s, is putting the house up for sale. To that end, they're holding an open house, to be held on Saturday and Sunday, September 22 and 23, at the home at 335 New Dover Road in the estate section of Colonia.

The house was built in 1921 and boasts amenities that sound like they were inspiried by the mansions of Beverly Hills: an enormous game room, a huge greenhouse, a three-car garage with apartment overhead (for the chauffeur, natch), and not one, but two pools - and one of them is indoors!

And did I mention the grounds?

The Zirpolo family has always gone out of their way to maintain lavish gardens. They're so gorgeous the family at least once a year for tours that are always filled to capacity.

It's not pushing it to say that Babbling Brook may well be the most magnificent property to come onto the market in the township in recent memory. It's certainly a house chockful of history that harkens back to a more gracious, elegant, and refined way of living.

To see the home, call Elba Lupo of  at 201-697-3844 or 732-596-2137.

Oh no....I'll bet another purchase the mayor will make compliments of the Woodbridge tax payers. VOTERS WAKE UP

Tom, that makes no sense. What does the mayor have to do with a private house sale? Do you need to bring your hatred of the mayor into everything? This is not even remotely related.

"master suite with exterior door". That's for making a hasty exit when the police come knocking at the front door.

@slyfox1961 Yo dimwit.....I'm not Tom (we've already addressed your delusional accusation) and believe me Tom is not the only person who has an extreme HATE for Mac. SURPRISE!!!!!!!!!!!! Seriously my friend, have you discussed your paranoid delusions with a professional? If not I suggest you do so real soon.

These pictures prove the old saying, "Money can't buy taste." The exterior is beautiful, but most of the interior is hideous.

Meow! You do know that Monistat is now OTC?

@CKS You're real tasky and crude. Do you have a vaginal yeast infection that you feel you must tell people about? TRASHY. You mom should be proud.
mrszzano September 05, 2012 at 11:07 AM
I'm expressing my opinion, just like you.
CKS September 05, 2012 at 01:06 PM
@ So Much to Say...Nope, I don't have a yeast infection but I think mrszzano might...she's got an itch somewhere that needs to be scratched. Would love, love, love to see her house! Love one of your previous comments about "GHETTO" Newark. Are you a RACIST or a BIGOT? Definition of Ghetto: 1. a section of a city, especially a thickly populated slum area, inhabited predominantly by members of an ethnic or other minority group, often as a result of social or economic restrictions, pressures, or hardships. YOUR mom (not you mom) must be soooooooooo proud. BTW please...what is tasky?

@so much to say: sorry if I confused your MAC ramblings with Tom, there are so few of you who agree with ANYTHING this man has to say. But are you sure I am the one with paranoid delusions? You are the one who sees corruption and conspiracies concerning the mayor under every rock. Get over it, the majority of the folks in this town agree with what he is doing. That's why he won! Sorry if you r intellect will not let you disagree with someone without the hate. You, Sir, are the dimwit. But don't worry! All will be forgiven when you go to church Sunday, right?

@CKS: "so much to say" is a MAras follower. Need I say more?
So Much to Say September 05, 2012 at 08:27 PM
@slyfox1961 After what Mac did to me and continues to do to the taxpayers....There is No forgiveness. Does he pay you over time for defending his pathetic rump. So few haters out there.....how about so few people who trust him.
So Much to Say September 05, 2012 at 08:30 PM
There is no doubt Newark is a disgusting ghetto. As for spelling....is that the best you can come up with? Obviously so. Blame the Patch for not having spell check and if they did, what would you have to whine about then.....your disgusting yeast infection.
So Much to Say September 05, 2012 at 08:32 PM
@slyfox1961 you must've taken your meds today.....It's about time you figured out I was not Mr. Maras. VOTERS WAKE UP.....Time to show Mac the door.
CKS September 06, 2012 at 01:31 PM
@So Much to Say. Hahahahah! If Patch had spellcheck, you'd complain that they were censoring you. Hahahahaha! It's your responsibility to check your own post. I love getting under people's skin who have nothing better to do do than criticize someone's decorating taste. Isn't she worried about something more important--like Afghanistan, drugs, crime? And no I don't have a yeast infection--just trying to help out someone who is snarky adn cranky . Like I said she must have an itch somewhere that needs attention.
So Much to Say September 07, 2012 at 03:09 AM
I don't give morons the time of day. So go scratch your nasty yeast infection and kiss my rump.....
