Known for its convenience and amenities

For buyers looking for an affordable suburb within a 30 minute drive to Manhattan, West Orange fits the bill. West Orange is a large town geographically and population wise. It has a very wide array of housing types, styles, price ranges and therefore it is hard to describe the town in a nutshell. From the estate section of Llewellyn Park, to 1950’s ranch homes, to small multi-families and newer luxury condo developments, the town really has something for every buyer. West Orange has a number of wonderful and unmatched amenities such as a beautiful new middle school, recently upgraded Turtle Back Zoo, new Safari Mini Golf Course, large indoor tennis facility, a convenient park and ride center, indoor ice arena and proximity to a large county park (South Mountain Reservation) and several local country clubs.
