Houses in suburban Montville in Morris County, New Jersey are larger and have bigger yards compared to other New York City suburbs (like half an acre), so you get more space and privacy here, plus a quick commute to the city.

The township is made up of three areas, Towaco, Pine Brook, and Montville. If you like nature, you’re close to several parks including Great Piece Meadows, Pyramid Mountain, Lake Valhalla, Camp Dawson, and Veterans Memorial Park. It’s also ranked as one of the best places to live in the state, according to Niche, and the public schools are well rated.

There isn’t a walkable downtown area, so you’ll need a car to live here. There are several local stores and restaurants like Red Barn, Rails Steakhouse, Columbia Inn, Locanda Vecchia, and Planted Eats. There’s also a New Jersey Transit stop in Towaco or you can drive to the city in less than an hour.

When it comes to the area’s real estate, the current median sales price is $530,000, according to Redfin. There are many large homes on the market with four to six bedrooms and an acre or more of land, and you can also find modest houses and townhouses.
