Homes are bought and sold all over South Orange on a regular basis. The factors determining where one might buy are: price, style and location of the home within the town. There are no areas to be "avoided".
South Orange village has great shops, restaurants, Cameron Field, and of course, the midtown direct train to the city - a 30 min ride.
From the Montrose section to Newstead, or any other section of town, S. Orange has much to offer.....charm and elegance....... beautiful homes , from Tudors to colonials to Victorians, on large wooded lots.... and a variety of architectural styles............ plus prices for many budgets.
I am a lifelong resident of Essex County, having spent, over the years, many an afternoon shopping or evening dining in South Orange. It is rich with diversity and charm. The new S.O. Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) is a gem.... with live performances, concerts and movie theater all on one!
It's a town that offers something for everyone!
You'll love it there!
