Watchung Homes for Sale

Watchung is a borough with a total of 6,000 people and covers an area of 6 square miles.  The borough borders Bernards Township, Bridgewater Township, and Green Brook Township.  The 6 square mile community of Watchung sweeps across the ridges of the Watchung Mountains and is wedged between New Jersey Route 22 and Interstate 78.  But unlike many other bedroom type of communities, Watchung offers huge properties, undulating hills, narrow winding roads, a lot of wildlife, and two lakes.  You can enjoy herds of deer, crayfish, ducks, a million dollar view, dales and babbling brooks.  And some people even have horses.  Since the town is small and the properties huge, everyone can be anonymous.  The wildlife is abundant in Watchung, making it very appealing.  Watchung is one of the safest communities in New Jersey and the schools have exceeded residents’ expectations.  The classes are small and the teachers care a lot about their students.  Technology is integrated as a course in the classrooms, and Watchung’s two schools are fully equipped with computers, internet access, and multimedia capabilities, and laboratories.  The schools want the children to be well-equipped.  It is also easy to get to know people here through volunteer work in this friendly community.

 

Watchung Home Prices

The median home price in Watchung is $600,000.  The typical home here is 6,000 to 8,000 square feet on an acre and a half.  The most common houses found are Cape Cods that go well over the 1.5 million dollar mark, as well as stucco-faced colonials on half acre lots.  Watchung is known for being home to luxurious houses with incredible views.  Large homes are sprinkled throughout the borough; however, because of the shortage of building lots, people are buying older homes, demolishing them, and building brand new ones.  There are also 72 townhomes and condominiums located in the Stone Gate Development.  There are a few rental properties located throughout the town as well.  There are many popular restaurants in the town and of course, the Watchung Reservation, which attracts many.  Most residents do their supermarket shopping in neighboring towns.  The closest major mall is the Short Hills Mall, only 13 miles northeast in the Bridgewater Commons, about 12 minutes away.  Watchung provides residents everything they want and more.  There is something to be said about living near the mountain; one can be close to nature, enjoy their privacy, and still enjoy modern day living that a community like Watchung provides. Whatever your budget happens to be on your new home, you’re likely to find a very magnificent home in a peaceful location in Watchung.
