Surrounded by equestrian farms and estates, meandering country roads and sprawling parks, the property is being offered at $2,399,000. Among the features are: a residence offering more than 7,000 square-feet of living space, outdoor recreation areas, heated Olympic-sized swimming pool and luxury amenities.

The property is the first luxury home that Latifah purchased.  The custom home, built in 2001, was designed for comfort and entertaining, and has been used as a retreat and gathering place for family and friends over the years.

"Many incredible memories have been shared with those closest to me and my family in this home," said Latifah. "I am confident that the new owners will love the home and the Colts Neck community as much as I do."

Long considered one of hip-hop's pioneer female artists, Latifah is a singer-songwriter, actress, model, television producer, record producer and talk show hostess. She has earned a Golden Globe award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, two Image Awards, a Grammy Award, six additional Grammy nominations, and Emmy and Academy Award nominations.  Her most recent endeavor, the Queen Latifah Show, has earned her a nomination for best new talk show host from the People's Choice Awards. 

Classic and contemporary best describe the transitionally styled home which combines traditional design with contemporary architectural details.  The 6-bedroom home features an open floor plan with hardwood flooring throughout, a grand foyer, and sunken two-story great room with gas fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to decks. Other amenities include a library with gas fireplace, half bath, an office with gas fireplace and private deck overlooking professionally landscaped grounds, and an au pair suite with full bath.

"I am honored to represent this spectacular home which offers traditional elegance and unique contemporary designs to suit a variety of homebuyers' taste," said Jackson. "Even though the home is large, it has a cozy relaxing feel which makes it perfect for families or for entertaining. Colts Neck offers extraordinary opportunities for those seeking privacy and tranquility in a quiet community which offers nearby amenities like the Jersey Shore, fine dining, theaters, and the arts. Delicious Orchards, a family owned market, is nearby and a particular favorite of Queen Latifah.  The home is within easy commuting distance of New York City and Philadelphia."

"Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
