Home of the Week – September 13, 2013


Location – 120 Maplewood Ave

Year Built – 1910

This is one of my favorite homes.  I always pass it on the way to Maplewood Village and the location is spectacular.  Close enough for a two minute walk but not too close.  It’s a Side-Hall Colonial with German exterior details and has a lot size of 0.39 acres

Building of the week September 3 – South Orange Village Hall


Address – 101 South Orange Avenue

Style – Tudor

Year built – 1894

Village Hall is home to South  Orange’s municipal government including administration, code enforcement, tax assessing, engineering, zoning, health and parking authority.  Police and Fire have their own buildings.

South Orange Town Hall is undergoing a much needed renovation. Estimates are for it to cost 6 to 7 million dollars.  Part of that price includes a geothermal system for heating & cooling that will eliminate petroleum needs and eventually pay for itself.  There are other ‘green’ systems that will be featured.
