Location: West Orange, N.J.
The Skinny: It might not possess the political connections of the former Edison estate in town, but this 15-room 1920 brick Tudor in West Orange, N.J. packs a lot of top-dollar style into a $2M package. The highlight of this offering is the well-tended formal acreage, detailed with fountains bordered by flagstone, broad brick patios, and an assortment of garden outbuildings. To our eyes, these 2.65 acres seem perfect for a summertime soiree, but we don't get a good look at the interiors from the listing photos, so it's hard to determine the condition. Still, provided the roof isn't leaking ceaselessly, $2M is a good deal for five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and original '20s detailing.
