Midland Park is a beautiful borough with a population of just under 7,000. This comfy hamlet is known for its vistas of the NYC skyline and its gingerbread village style layout which is oriented around a lovely school, church, and cozy downtown area. The township is tucked right on the western side of Ridgewood and thereby shares many of the same amenities with Ridgewood as well as a similar lifestyle. The houses in Midland Park are primarily detached single-family houses with beautiful architectural detailing that draw inspiration from a variety of classic American styles. Slightly more modest than some of Bergen County's lavish estates, these family houses still enjoy the greenery, privacy, spaciousness, and suburban serenity that most buyers seek out in a home.
Homes in Midland Park tend not to range into the multi million range the way homes in Ridgewood do. Instead, these homes tend to fall under the $1,000,000 mark. They include beautiful Victorian inspired houses as well as established 20th century homes with vast lawns and airs of retro luxury. The quintessential suburban homes that dot the landscape are accompanied by smaller ranchers and bungalows, resulting in a wide range of choice for buyers with a variety of lifestyles and space needs.
Oakland, New Jersey is a Bergen County gem with a wealth of lovely, unique homes each of which is architecturally and stylistically distinct from the other. Many homes here are situated within lush groves of trees, on wooded lots with long driveways and havens of exclusivity. They were built in the 20th century and showcase rich, character-filled features such as shutters, wood paneling, and timber beams. Exposed brick, ornate molding, original wood flooring, and other hints of heritage peek through each home here.
When it comes to lifestyle, Oakland continues to shine. You'll enjoy the beautiful parks and recreation facilities, as well as the coffee shops, bakeries, and natural spaces. Crystal Lake Beach Club is a community favorite; situated on striking Crystal Lake, this is the spot to swim, fish, boat, and enjoy the scenic backdrops. As with all the communities mentioned here, Oakland is home to some fantastic highly-regarded schools
Ramsey is a lovely locality with plenty to offer the home buyer. Though Ramsey is home to some truly gorgeous houses, many come here for the top-notch schools, warm and welcoming community feel, and refined culture. The Darlington Golf Center is beloved among locals, as are the inviting Irish pubs, peaceful parks, and nice restaurants that can be found here. Ramsey real estate is made up of bright family estates with all the majestic touches you could want in a house, including grand staircases and chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling bookcases, and high quality craftsmanship through-and-through.
Waldwick is a charming settlement that's home to approximately 10,000 residents. Homebuyers might look to Waldwick for its tranquil pace, wealth of amenities, and its timeless small town appeal. Large trees line the streets of Waldwick where endearing detached homes with delightful curb appeal are met by equally picturesque condos and row homes. Walk anywhere — to school, to the library, or to the diners and eateries that pop up every few blocks. Waldwick gives you the full and authentic community experience with city life at your doorstep.
Wyckoff is an unbelievably picturesque township of around 17,000. A rural flair that hints at the township's origins can be seen in the farmhouse architecture of many of the estates here, the Dutch barn-inspired architectural features, the markets, wide green spaces, and the rustic cuisine stops. Within this setting, you'll find other breathtaking homes that enjoy landscaped grounds, plush East Coast characteristics, and incredible amenities. Take the dog for a walk at Russell Farms Community Park; enjoy the beautiful brick buildings and lampposts that form the prestigious atmosphere here.
