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.

And we can get this project completed in time for Montclair's sesquicentennial when we can stick a fork into historic preservation as a public policy.
