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.

"Whether that whole municipal move thing really pans out money wise still remains to be seen." Uh, the Police Department move is going to happen. There is no Plan B. The only thing still open is the negotiation.
