Estates at Alpine, Alpine NJ

The Estates at Alpine Development is a subdivision of the 60-acre estate formerly owned by Dr. Henry Clay Frick. The developer, Richard Kurtz, purchased the estate for $58 Million and subdivided the property into individual parcels leaving the original estate on 20 acres. The first home in the development was constructed on speculation and is on the market for $68 million.

Paul Keyes Associates designed and styled the development entrance as well as the landscape and gardens for the primary residence. I also managed the installation and construction of our design work which included locally mined hand carved granite walls, custom iron gates and lights, granite paving and mature plantings. Richard was extremely passionate and involved with the design and details. It was another great opportunity to work closely with a fun client and the results were spectacular. I’ve always said that my best ideas come from my clients and this is certainly a prime example.

Paul Keyes  graduated from Rutgers University in 1989 with a B.S. in Environmental Planning and Design and a minor in Ornamental Horticulture. Paul continued his education by Graduating from Montclair State University with a M.A. in Environmental Studies with a concentration in Environmental Education.Paul established Paul Keyes Associates in 1996.
