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.

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.
