About 104 properties are showing this pre-Thanksgiving weekend. New listings include a 4,200-square-foot townhouse on the market in South Orange.

4 Greenview Way, Montclair
List Price: $1,250,000
Taxes: $21,543
Acreage: 0.43

Built in approximately 1954, this 10-room Contemporary is new on the market. The house recently underwent a two-year renovation “from the studs out.” The house is not lacking: there is an elevator from the two-car underground garage to the first floor, for one. And, there is a large new kitchen, central air, a fireplace in the living room and a security system. The master bedroom has two walk-in closets; the master bathroom has a marble countertop and a glass-enclosed shower. Finally, there is a full, walkout basement. Open 2 to 4 p.m.


444 Richmond Ave., Maplewood
List Price: $500,000
Taxes: $15,533
Acreage: 0.17

Listed in the last month, this eight-room circa 1906 Victorian has a new (unfortunately not eat-in) kitchen with a butler’s pantry and updated bathrooms. Interesting details abound, especially on the third level, which incorporates wood paneling in a few unusual ways (one third floor bedroom is pictured at left). Wood is a theme throughout the house; the dining room has a beamed ceiling and there is a sizable front porch. Also, there is a wood burning fireplace in the living room. Lastly, there is a full, unfinished basement and one-car detached garage. Open 1 to 4 p.m.


25 Clonavor Rd., West Orange
List Price: $385,000
Taxes: $13,850
Acreage: n/a

There is a lot to like about this eight-room brick English Colonial, also new to the market. Highlights include cathedral ceilings, a stately stone fireplace in the living room and a deck. There is an unfinished basement and two-car detached garage. The house is believed to have been constructed in 1920. Open 2 to 4 p.m.


7 Tillou Rd. W., South Orange
List Price: $869,000
Taxes: $24,870
Association Fee: $700

This circa 2006 Townhouse, an end unit, is another new listing. The 4,200-square-foot property is part of a 62-house community. Features include a two-story entrance; a large kitchen with a center island and butler’s pantry; a sunken family room with a gas fireplace; central air; a master bedroom with two walk-in closets; a gym; a finished, full basement; a two-car attached garage; and a patio. Pets are allowed. Open 12 to 4 p.m.


There are also a number of reductions this weekend, including:

11 Ferncliff Terr., Glen Ridge, listed at $699,000, has five bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, central air and an in-ground pool. The price of the 10-room Tudor was dropped by $30,000 in late October. Taxes are $20,660. Open 2 to 4 p.m.

72 Birch St., Bloomfield, a five-room Cottage with two bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms, is now listed at $215,000 — a $10,000 reduction. Taxes are $7,625. Open 12 to 4 p.m.

I was assigned to chimney security today at middle school in the State of Washington, to prevent Betsy DeVoss from trying to climb in that way when she couldn't get in the front door. Protesters abounded below while I rode shotgun on the roof. We're with Montclair all the way. Glad you're here MontClairVoyant!
