Glen Ridge NJ Real Estate began as a neighborhood within Bloomfield NJ. The communities roots can be traced back to 1666 when sixty-four Connecticut families led by Robert Treat bought land from the Lennilenape Indians and named it New Ark. The name New Ark reflected a covenant to worship freely without persecution. The median household price for Glen Ridge is $580,000 for 2014.
The territory purchased included the future towns of Bloomfield, Montclair, Belleville, and Nutley. When Bloomfield seceded in 1812, Glen Ridge Homes fell within a neighborhood “On the Hill” composed mostly of farms and woodlands with the exception of a thriving industrial area along Toney’s Brook in the Glen. Residents “On the Hill” became unhappy with their representation on the Bloomfield Council. In spite of repeated requests to Bloomfield officials, Glen Ridge Homes remained uncared for, roads were left unpaved, water and sewer systems were nonexistent and schools were miles away.
In 1895 Glen Ridge NJ was separated from Bloomfield, they marked out the boundaries of a 1.45 square mile area and thus Glen Ridge NJ was born. One thing to note about Glen Ridge Homes is the historic pride residents have in their residencies. Very rarely will you see a Glen Ridge Home in need of repairs or painting.

Glen Ridge Homes
Glen Ridge NJ began and grew to maturity during a period in which eclecticism was the predominant influence in American Architecture. Glen Ridge Homes reflects all the major architectural styles from the mid-nineteenth century on. The earliest were simple farmhouses, which have since been altered and/or enlarged. As the nineteenth century progressed, the towers and turrets of the “Carpenter Gothic” appeared on many Glen Ridge Homes as well as the stone and half-timbered wood and stucco manor houses of the Medieval time period.
Later, the High Victorian period gave Glen Ridge Real Estate many Italianate “villas”, homes with bracketed eaves and some Second Empire mansard roofs and arched dormers. The “Queen Anne Cottage” and the “shingle style” are also represented in Glen Ridge Homes and by the mid-1890’s there was a surge of interest in the American Georgian Style.
Glen Ridge’s Architectural Legacy includes buildings of outstanding design quality for their time, and famous architects have had their hands in the creation of this legacy. The most notable is the contemporary homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Three homes in town are credited to Stanford White and one Georgian Style Home is the work of John Russell Pope.
