This N.J. man did a gut renovation on a luxury townhouse, with dazzling results

For some people, moving from a six bedroom, 5,000-square-foot house to a three-bedroom, 2,400-square-foot-house would be considered downsizing. For Anthony Fonti, it’s living his evolving dream. “Since I was a little kid, I always wanted the big house,” says the bachelor business owner. But living in Freehold got to be a little boring, and it was a long drive from Northern New Jersey, where he does much of his business. So, he sold his spacious Freehold home for a luxury townhouse in Edgewater. “I bought something smaller for a lot more money,” he said with a laugh. What he gained: A dramatic view of the Hudson River and less travel time to the excitement of New York City. “I needed to have something to justify moving to a smaller house,” he said. Fonti, 36, owns Carcierge Valet, a company that provides attendants who park cars for hotels, restaurants, and other locations in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.
