With about 100 properties showing, it’s shaping up to be another busy open house weekend in Baristaville. There is a lot of variety at all price points, but many familiar listings. New offerings and reductions are in the minority.

29 Upper Mountain Ave., Unit C290, No. 2, Montclair
List Price: $225,000
Taxes: $6,748
Association Fee: $252

This one-floor, 790-sq. ft. unit features an updated kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances; the bathroom was renovated in the past year as well. The four-room Condo also has a dining area and central air. There are two closets in the bedroom. Heat and hot water are included in the maintenance fee. The building was constructed in 1965. Open house 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

18 Oakridge Rd., Bloomfield
List Price: $339,000
Taxes: $10,337
Acreage: 0.09 Acres

Recently reduced by $20,000, this six-room Colonial has a new roof and windows and hardwood floors throughout. Other house attributes include a fireplace in the living room. The backyard is enlivened by a patio and garden, but can’t compare to nearby Brookdale Park. Finally, the circa 1930 house has a finished, full basement and one car attached garage. Open house 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

18 Appleton Pl., Glen Ridge
List Price: $615,000
Taxes: $17,502
Acreage: 0.19 Acres

This nine-room Center Hall Colonial, constructed in 1914, is distinguished by oversize rooms and a nice mix of old and new. The 2,302-sq. ft. house has built-ins and a fireplace in the living room; the first floor bathroom is newer. The kitchen, though adequate, may be lacking to some. There is a sunroom on the first floor as well. Two bedrooms are located on the third floor, along with a full bathroom. Lastly, there is a full, finished recently renovated basement with a French drain. There is no garage, but there is a storage shed. Open house 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

66 Montview Ave., Millburn
List Price: $2,119,000
Taxes: $45,388
Acreage: 1.18 Acres

There’s a lot to like about this 10-rooom Colonial, which has an extra house on the lot. The main house, built in 1937 and renovated in 2006, boasts a master bedroom with heated stone floors, three closets and an outdoor rooftop terrace. Luxuries abound. A refrigerated pantry in the kitchen may be the most over-the-top touch. The second house, constructed about five years ago, has a kitchen, vaulted ceilings and central air. The custom, heated gunite pool has an electronic retractable cover. Open house 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Just reduced: The price of 27 Gracel St., Bloomfield, a nine-room Colonial with four bedrooms and four bathrooms featured here, was just lowered by $20,000 to $349,000. Open house 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Meanwhile, 35 Collamore Terr., West Orange, was also just reduced by $20,000. Listed at $350,000, the eight-room Split Level has 2.1 new bathrooms, three bedrooms, hardwood floors and central air. Open house 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Christie's political career is finished and quite frankly, the state of New Jersey is so over him and his big mouth bully tactics that we're all wishing his replacement was part of the Nov 8 election. Hooking his caboose to the disastrous Trump campaign is his only option.
