Location: West Orange, New Jersey
This unique, 1964-built home located in West Orange, New Jersey combines the best of midcentury design with its crescent-shaped floor plan, accordion pebble roof, and a dramatic wall of windows that open up to an expansive lawn and views of the New York City skyline.
Situated on two acres of greenery, the four-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot residence boasts a mix of materials including bluestone tiling, a limestone hearth, and redwood paneling. Recently restored, the home features all original light fixtures (including the uplighting), dramatic 12-foot post-and-beam ceilings, open-plan living and dining areas—plus an abutting sun room—and a perfect period kitchen with double fold-down NuTone ovens and Caloric cooktop.
The property perches atop First Watchung Mountain right above the historic Llewellyn Park community and enjoys vistas that include not only the natural landscape but the city as well. Located at 24 Eagle Ridge Way in a double-gated private area with 24-hour security—and no association fees!—the home is accessed by a circular driveway that leads to an oversized carport, which then connects to a bright red door under a covered walkway. It’s asking $1,297,000. Watch a video tour below.
