Autumnal Splendor in South Orange

I so love this time of year when the leaves become colorful brushstrokes on the landscape. Living in South Orange and Maplewood, we get the extra benefit of bordering the South Mountain Reservation and a valley view upwards of color. This drone video was filmed by Ken Siegel (973-517-0384) and features parts of the park system of South Orange--Flood's Hill and The Baird Center--with the tennis courts, baseball fields, platform tennis courts, basketball courts and fields for soccer, frisbee and live music.

They also happen to be 2 houses from my newest listing--307 Hillside Place--which you won't want to miss! Imagine having a home perched just off this wonderful park system where you can enjoy everything from live music to sporting events to sledding and so much more! Call me at 917-797-5059 to set up a showing appointment before its too late!

Extend your stay with a Fire Pit, or Simply Live here: 26 Washington Park

When summer ends, some people cover their patio furniture and stash their gardening tools away until the first sign of spring in the next year. More and more people, however, are embracing the great outdoors outside their homes with a number of interesting landscape trends.

Fire features are big, with everything from new twists on fire pits--like a glass gas fire pit--to outdoor fireplaces controlled with your smartphone. I still prefer the old fashion kind, pictured below:


Want to buy this firepit? it comes with a great home--26 Washington Park, Maplewood, NJ.

Plan a fall garden with as much fervor as you’d plan your spring garden, focusing on plantings like boxwoods and maples that reach peak bloom during fall and winter.

And when you can’t stand the cold any longer, you can bring the green inside with whole walls made out of green plants and tropical gardens nurtured inside year-round.
Need a little boost in creativity? I’m happy to take your call ((917) 797-5059) or stop by to offer some specific tips for you and your yard.

Why Live in New Providence?

Why New Providence?


I just listing this amazing home with an incredible history in New Providence. New Providence has always been known for its schools and access to NYC trains, but a couple of years ago NJ Monthly rated it the number one school in New Jersey, displacing the multi-year winner--Millburn. They keep playing with the methodology of ranking and, as a result, the ranking moves around; however, New Providence continues to be one of the top rated school systems in New Jersey.


Then this year, New Providence was awarded the distinction of being a School District of Character in Feb 2017:

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ – It is all about character, not only in the New Providence schools, but also in the community at large. This was the core theme as the district administration, staff, students, parents and community members celebrated for New Providence School District being named as one of the four National Districts of Character.


Topping this off, New Providence was just Ranked as Eighth Best Place to Live by New Jersey Monthly Magazine, Aug 2017:
The news is out, the borough is ranked the eighth best place to live in New Jersey according to New Jersey Monthly’s newly published list of the Garden State’s Top 100 Towns.

So Why New Providence?

New Providence is part of Union County, offering lower taxes than similarly priced homes in Essex County but still a very commutable location for NYC workplaces.
According to NJ Monthly:
Chart rank: 8 (2015: 69) a noticeably higher ranking.
Median home price: $586,250
Change since 2014: +6.6%
Average days on market: 44
High school rank, 2016: 13

Why It’s Hot: Commuters who land in this 3.65-square-mile borough enjoy two train stations and a growing downtown that adds to its appeal. Not too long ago the downtown offered nothing but banks and nail salons. Now there is a Starbucks and a Chipotle as well as many other well known restaurants.

Neighborhoods: New Providence shares the leafy and welcoming Murray Hill community, longtime home of Bell Labs (now part of Nokia), with neighboring Berkeley Heights. Other desirable neighborhoods include West Summit and Tall Oaks. Buyers are flocking to each to avoid the higher-prices for homes in nearby Summit and Chatham.

Fun Fact: Numerous branches of Salt Brook carve their way through the borough, join near the center of town and flow into the Passaic River. More than 9 percent of the acreage in New Providence is permanently protected, publicly owned parkland.

Looking to live here, look no further as this amazing home at 1049 Springfield Avenue, was just listed:


Location:

Only a 1/4 mile walk to New Providence Mid-Town Direct train station.

Less than 1/2 mile walk to downtown which now has a Starbucks!

The House itself



This house in particular was formerly know as The Parsonage House and as such offers many historic features and amenities, as follows:

For starters, the property sits at a higher elevation than all surrounding homes, giving it amazing stature.
Additionally, as with old traditions, the house has a 52" wide front doors (making it much easier to move the Sub Zero and 8 burner Viking Range into the home) that were deemed a reflection of the more important the person the bigger the front door. The idyllic front porch offers a ceiling painted sky blue, customarily done to give you the setting as if you are looking at the sky while sitting on your front porch.
Furthermore, Strafford Farms, a previous owner of the house, then developed the area now know as The Pine Way in 1947. A bucolic winding way with pine trees and no above ground electric (no wires nor poles) on Pine Way making it a most desirable neighborhood.


More specific features and benefits:

American Chestnut stairs and molding.
Western Red Cedars planted in patio for a private surrounding in addition along side the driveway.
Southern Yellow Pine floors.
September 2014 installation of new upgraded Williamson(Weil-McLain) 175 BTU natural gas boiler, radiator steam heat resulting in energy efficiency and lower heating bills.
September 2017 new Honeywell thermostat installed.

A picturesque town in Essex County, Maplewood is located on the East Branch of the Rahway River. Originally consisting of farms, mills and orchards, Maplewood is now a great mix of residential and commercial areas, culminating in the jewel of a downtown village and coming together to create a charming, tight-knit and diversified community. Maplewood has predominantly Colonial and Tudor style homes with sprawling porches and ample greenery, but you can also find some Victorians and a range of more modern style construction on its beautiful tree lined streets.
Maplewood is a diverse town with 6 elementary schools and prominent municipal building designed by famous architects, Guilbert and Betelle. In the center of town, famed landscape architects, the Olmstead Brothers, created the breathtaking Memorial Park; not to be overlooked is Ricalton Square, nestled between the train station and the downtown shopping; this area is frequently used for events including a Halloween Parade with hayrides and petting zoos, as well as featuring replica homes during the Winter Holiday Season. The town offers many activities to its residents from camps in the summer, arts and crafts classes, a public pool (with 4 pools ranging from a “baby” pool to toddler pool to large lap pool and a diving tank) and a farmers market when in season. There is even an annual musicalpalooza--Maplewoodstock—featuring a variety of bands and musical styles, showcasing local and national bands with booths for local businesses to set up.
The Village, also known as Maplewood Center, is a quaint, downtown shopping district with everything from restaurants with foods from all over the world, bakeries, dance studios, gyms, bookstores, a movie theater and bookstores. With its large variety of cuisines to choose from, Maplewood recently started a yearly town-wide Restaurant Week with over 30 eateries participating.
Easily accessible by its throughways and the New Jersey Transit, it's no surprise Maplewood has been ranked several times as one of the most desirable places to live in America by a number of surveys.
