Here’s How Dr. Oz and his Wife Lisa Built Their Mansion from Scratch

It has been twenty years since Dr. Mehmet Oz, along with his wife, started their hunt for the perfect house where they wanted to raise their growing family. The host of Dr. Oz show shared his views and said that almost every other home they found wasn’t right for them, so they had to continue their hunt for finding the perfect house for their family. He said that they were aware that they wanted a place where the couple could build a long life together.

Finding the perfect spot

They found just the ideal place on the highest part of the Palisades, in Cliffside Park, New Jersey, which overlooks the Manhattan skyline. The wife of Dr. Oz, Lisa, 56 years old, said that the family of Mehmet, which lives in Istanbul, always liked to watch the Bosporus Sea, so when they made plans on moving there, Dr. Mehmet shared his desire to watch the Hudson River.

Mehmet said that in the morning light, it is very calming to watch the river flow. He likes passes over the river early in the morning, whether going on shooting for his show or for treating his patients at New York Presbyterian-Columbia Medical Center.

The final purchase

Mehmet recalled that the only property present at the site was marked as unsafe as one couldn’t even walk in it, but when he got the aerial photo of the plot, both he and his wife knew that this was the perfect place that they have been looking for.

They purchased the land that day. Everything, including the design and construction of the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom dwelling with ceilings as high as 12 ft. was done by Lisa. The Mediterranean style inspired the architectural work done on the house.

The place serves as a memory holder

The place has hosted many birthdays and milestones, and it is hoped that it will be the venue of such occasions for many more years. Coming June, the Mehmet family will celebrate their 35th marriage anniversary. Although the house has more than one detail to share, it is quite necessary to mention that Dr Mehmet, who has just launched his new system called “30 diets”, has his separate playroom in the basement.

The room is more than a game lover’s dream as it contains a pool and foosball tables and also encompasses a basketball half-court. When Mehmet questioned his wife Lisa about her most favorite thing in the house, she didn’t hesitate and said, “You.” Although the estate contains a movie theatre, wine cellar, and a gym, what matters the most are the memories the couple has made in their home.
