Hamptons Meets Montclair, Via Grove Street

BY  |  Thursday, May 05, 2016 2:45pm  |  COMMENTS (0)


I’ve always admired this house at 180 Grove Steet and wondered what it looked like inside. Turns out, it’s pretty spectacular and packed with tons of cool architectural details (leaded glass bookcases, burlap covered walls, a kitchen with reclaimed wood ceiling and island from Grover Cleveland’s barn), something you would never guess just from driving by.


Featured last spring in Montclair Magazine, this estate-like home with a pool and a lighted tennis court that’s not in the Estate section, is walking distance to Walnut Street market and shopping.

180 Grove has seven bedrooms, three full and two half baths, and is situated on almost 3/4 of an acre. Priced at $1,649,000, with taxes at $35,277. Open house this Sunday (take a tour for Mother’s Day?) from 1-4 p.m.

Montclair Makes Coolest Suburb in America’s 35 Biggest Metro Areas List

BY  |  Monday, Apr 18, 2016 8:25am  |  COMMENTS (0)


Thrillist published an article over the weekend listing 35 cool burbs near a big city and Montclair made the list. 

The chosen burbs had to have three major factors:

  1. A good (or at least respectable) food/drink scene, with enough places to go close to home to not always have to trudge back into the city.
  2. Not so far away from the city that the commute is awful
  3. A place with a history or its own unique elements that separate it from just planned suburban sprawl

Sums up Montclair perfectly, doesn’t it? Here’s exactly what Thrillist has to say about our cool burb:
