The Hartshorn District of Short Hills is an extremely desirable area of town in which to live.
Located in the Old Short Hills area of Millburn Township in Essex County, the Hartshorn District has a rich history. In the mid-1800s, Stewart Hartshorn, who invented the roller shade, purchased land to create a planned community for people who appreciated nature. This area, which was named after him, is known as the Hartshorn District. Stewart Hartshorn’s vision is still evident today. Residents in this area have easy access to the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum, the South Mountain Reservation, Short Hills Park and Greenwood Gardens for a myriad of outdoor activities.
The Hartshorn section features magnificent homes that sit on larger lots and are generally well maintained. The streets are quiet, winding and tree-lined. This is a family-friendly area and a great place to raise your kids. The schools are consistently rated among the top in New Jersey. And, you will often see your neighbors out walking with their dogs, jogging, or biking.
Many people commute into the city, and the Short Hills train station is just a five minute drive away. The Hartshorn District is close to routes 78 and 24 which provide easy access to the Garden State Parkway, Route 287 and the New Jersey Turnpike. Newark Airport is about 18 minutes drive from Millburn/Short Hills. Major sports and entertainment venues are also just minutes away, and it is a short trip to ski resorts and our beautiful New Jersey beaches.
And world-renowned shopping is right around the corner–at the Short Hills Mall.
25 Stewart Road in Short Hills is a place you can easily call home and one you will be proud to share with family and friends.
