Location: Montclair, New Jersey
Set in the treetops of Montclair, New Jersey with views to the New York City skyline is this impressive two-story midcentury modern retreat designed by Arthur Rigolo in 1957. Five spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, stainless-steel-applianced kitchen, step-up living room with fireplace, glazed dining area, and first-floor den occupy the 2,800-square-foot space. Floors are laid in wood, carpet, ceramic, and stone.
The massive windows on the near-double-height upper level, on which most of the property’s private quarters are situated, give way to a private deck, one of two koi ponds, and a dog run. Surrounding the home is the lush greenery of a 200-acre nature preserve. With New York City less than 20 miles away, this tucked-away oasis would be a commuter’s dream. It's asking $899,000. Take a look.
