Florham Park Real Estate Communities
Housing in Florham Park consists of single-family home neighborhoods built during the mid-century, more recently-built luxury home enclaves and several condominium communities.
Beechwood in southern Florham Park was built in the late 1940s to accommodate soldiers returning home from World War II. Many of the 120 modest split levels have been rebuilt and upgraded through the years. Spacious homes from the 1950s and 1960s define the Briarwood neighborhood near the Briarwood School, Pinch Brook bordering the Pinch Brook Golf Course, and Brooklake near the Brooklake School, although this section also has some homes built in the 1980s. The Afton neighborhood in the center of the borough dates to the mid-1950s, with many updated homes now located in that enclave which began as 400 split levels.
Floral Manor consists of roomy late 1960s and 1970s homes on Village Road and Vultee Drive.
Murphy Circle is a similar neighborhood of 1960s Colonials located near Ridgedale Avenue and Ridgedale Middle School. Sherbroke Drive is a low-traffic enclave developed in the mid-to-late 1960s bordering Madison and surrounded by that town’s Memorial Park.
Convent Station, a small section of which is within Florham Park’s borders, includes parts of Delaware Road, Punch Bowl Road, Ward Place and Arrowhead Road. Also in this area are portions of The College of Saint Elizabeth and Fairleigh Dickinson University’s campuses. Many residents living in the Convent Station section are a short distance from the NJ Transit train station, where Midtown Direct rail service is a bonus for New York-bound riders. This western corner of the borough also borders the Morris County Golf Club.
Spacious Colonials and contemporary-style homes created mainly during the 1980s characterize the Lakeside neighborhood situated near Route 24 and the Brooklake Country Club. Newer luxury homes built mostly in the 1990s are located in Summit Woods near Columbia Turnpike and the Passaic River.
Country Club Estates in the eastern part of Florham Park is known as one of the more expensive areas. A home sale in 1994 for over $1 million set a record at the time. Bordering Brooklake Country Club, luxury homes built in the mid-1990s line Pine Valley Way and Country Club Lane. Today, values have gone up considerably; some homes are in the $3 million range. The prestigious Rosemont Hills section off Brooklake Road is another upper-end development of estate-style homes constructed in the late 1990s on lots of about an acre. Several opportunities for newly-constructed custom homes exist throughout Florham Park when homebuyers seek that option.
Florham Park also contains a nice variety of townhouse and condominium developments. Brandywyne at Florham Park is a collection of contemporary-style residences built in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Consisting of 90 multi-level condominiums, the expansive 40-acre Florham on the Fairways community is adjacent to Brooklake Country Club’s golf course. Belantrae Greens is a gated complex of 190 townhomes sited on about 26 acres bordering the Pinch Brook Golf Course. Hearthwood Village condominiums are situated just off Columbia Turnpike on a series of quiet streets.
There are two 55+ condominium communities for active adults in Florham Park. Northgate at Florham on Hanover Road consists of 33 townhomes with two and three bedrooms built in 2008. Brooklake Park on Brooklake Road offers a collection of two-bedroom condominiums with numerous on-site amenities; it was built in 2009.
