Want to go back to a simpler time? How about a historic farm property with a Victorian Farmhouse, genuine red barn and greenhouse, minutes from Montclair and transportation to NYC.
Priced at $525,900 (taxes $10,326/2013), the well maintained Victorian Farmhouse, located at 3 Harrison Ave. in Roseland, is one of the original houses in the town of Roseland that evolved from a much older farm dwelling. The half acre property includes an 1870s barn, hobby greenhouse and vegetable garden.

With the installation of a striking cornice and the opening of the Manhattan Bagel store, to join the already operational Pro Cuts next door, the building at 250 Bellevue Ave. (next door to the movie theater) has completed its transformation from law office building to a ground floor retail space with subdividable office space available on the 2nd floor. Montclair architect Paul Sionas worked to maintain the essence of the building and to improve its appearance and conform it to the historic district in which it sits.
For a detailed description of the property, being marketed by Andree Bertsche at Stanton Company Realtors, Montclair, see 250 Bellevue Details.
The building is owned by 250 Bellevue Realty, LLC, whose principals are Jeffrey Cooper and Elizabeth Schrero Cooper, the son and daughter-in-law of the late Hon. Peter B. Cooper who, before he was a judge in Essex County, owned and had his law practice in the building. His law firm, which at one point was Bennett, Shepherd and Cooper and then Cooper, Dickson, Merkelbach, Camp and Cass, later became Dickson, Ashenfelter, Slous, Tanner & Trevenen, LLP, which occupied the building from the mid-1950s until several years ago.
