Welcome to the Legacy Castle. The newest premiere upscale wedding, catering, and event venue in New Jersey.
Located in Pompton Plains and built on a tract of land surrounded by fresh water lakes with beautiful landscaped gardens, tree lined paths and manicured lawns.
Originally purchased in 1998, this project has been in process for quite some time. Envisioned by entrepreneur Mounir Badaan, this has been a family venture. With over 30 years of experience in real estate, Mounir Badaan has successfully developed land in the surrounding towns, and made a name for himself in the tri-state area. Ready to hand over the reigns to his children this will be Mounir Badaan’s last project, as it has been so aptly named.
An aerial view shows a truly unique, unparalleled romantic setting to celebrate momentous occasions.
The criterion for the design of the castle was to build a structure that would exude an aura of classic elegance and grandeur of a royal palace, reminiscent of mansions built during the gilded age of the late 19th century.
The Legacy Castle is of a neo-classical French beaux-arts style architecture, a blend of different architectural elements abound. There are towers, circular balconies, with French wrought iron railings, an outdoor terrace above a porte-cochere, and porticos supported by classical style columns.
As you drive through the exquisite French style wrought iron gates, you will see the castle across the lake. Be sure to say Hello to the pair of resident white swans in the water. Moving along, you will be going under a towering arched entrance and come across a beautiful and artfully landscaped center courtyard with ramps on both sides leading to the castle, and a tall fountain with intricately carved marble figures as its centerpiece.
Each ramp holds vintage style lampposts intermittently embellished with urns filled with flowering plants, where you can hear the soothing sound of the water cascading from the top to the bottom of the 21foot fountain.
The interior of the castle is breathtakingly gorgeous, spacious and luxurious. Starting from the foyer, to the main lobby, cocktail areas and ballrooms.
The focal point of the Legacy Castle is the main lobby. An unusual 55-foot high ceiling, a dual floating grand staircase, an exquisite fireplace, marble floors with an ornate center medallion of different colored marbles. The design of the main ceiling is unique and sumptuous. Suspended from the ceiling is a majestic chandelier flanked by two chandeliers of an equally imposing size. At the bottom of each staircase are two lampposts with black marble steps. The wrought iron stair railings throughout the second floor are custom designed with Newell posts that light up.
The castle doors are embellished with ornate moldings and appliques. Hand carved cartouches sits above the doorframes. Like a symphony, the architectural features and decorative elements come together and give the main lobby a sense of timeless classic elegance.
The ceilings throughout the castle are exceptionally high. Each ceiling is designed differently. Coffered ceilings, barrel ceilings, vaulted groin ceilings, all enhanced with ornate applied moldings and highlighted by hand painted gold accents. All of the ceilings are accentuated by cove lights, chandeliers and wall sconces.
From the lobby, looking down the main hallway flanked on both sides by marbleized columns, sits an indoor fountain of carved white marble. Most grand ballrooms and palaces around the world are dazzling with a white and gold scheme, and the Legacy Castle is no exception. The white and gold scheme provides the atmosphere with class, elegance, sophistication and luxury.
