Homes for Sale in Montclair NJ

Montclair is a diverse community, just 12 miles from NYC, with something for everyone. You will find restaurants (about 130), chic clothing and home design stores, and a mix of real estate, from high-end single family homes to rentals.

You may hear Montclair being referred to as the urban suburb, or leafy (there are nearly 40,000 shade trees in Montclair which is more trees than people).

According to Travel & Leisure, Montclair is "one of the coolest suburbs in America" (8/2010).

New York Magazine calls Montclair "the upper west side of Suburbia" (11/18/96) and in another article back in 2002 referred to Montclair as a "cultural oasis" in the suburbs — it remains so today.

The Wall Street Journal features Montclair in a 10/9/10 article as an example of the type of community "where Americans are clamoring to live and where housing prices have held up…"

Montclair has long attracted creative people. Media professionals, writers, filmmakers, editors, and a variety of professionals who work in the city but want to raise their families outside of it make their home here. It also appeals to entrepreneurs, who have home offices for pursuits in areas such as architectural consultation, event and wedding planning, and photography.

A 3/11/07 Gawker article about Montclair titled "Where They Weekend", calls Montclair "a wondrous place…..the hinterland of the creative class."

The commute into Manhattan is fast – about 35-45 minutes by train or bus. Montclair has 6 train stations, with direct service to Hoboken and Manhattan. One could conceivably live a short distance to either train or bus or both, as well as one of the four shopping districts in town, enjoying the best that this walkable suburb has to offer.
