There has been a real estate trend in Northern New Jersey towards very large, luxury townhouse communities. Kips Ridge in Montclair, was built about 25 years ago and it was one of the first luxury townhouse communities in Northern New Jersey. The location is private and secluded from the normal hustle and bustle of Montclair being located on Crestmont Avenue. The community overlooks all of New York City being one of the highest altitudes in Montclair New Jersey. They were designed with a master bedroom suite on the main level, along with a living room, dining room and kitchen. On the second floor is two more bedrooms and a den with a circular study high in the peaked turrets.
The townhouses range from 4,000-5,000 square feet, they have huge wrap around decks, large walls of windows which again oversee “ALL” of Manhattan. The town houses have varied roof lines, prominent chimneys and turrets. The exterior is very traditionally designed with brick and stucco. The interiors are modern with open floor plans and large circular staircases.The views are exceptional from Kips Ridge. Some of the townhouses also offer elevators.
