My Notes
Edit
This Tudor with a dramatic Vermont Slate roof, woodburning fireplace, original hardwood wood floors with inlay, 4 bedrooms, nursery, three bathrooms, a huge basement play space and large, yard, screened porch and detached garage will make you feel at home. Welcome to the nationally registered historic district--Forest Hills-- oasis in the North Ward and locations of mansions of heirs to Tiffany stained glass, thread-manufacturing Clarks and beer-breweing Ballantines--in the well-located city of Newark, a mere twenty minutes to NYC via public transport and right next door to Montclair. Located one block from Branch Brook park, designed by Frederick Olmstead (who created Central Park in the same style, but BB also has an internationally renowned cherry blossom festival), this stately, custom-built home can provide you the joys of living on a mini garden estate, complete with slate walkways and benches, roses, lilacs, iris, day lilies, hastas, elms, a giant pine and a cherry tree.
Forest Hills features elaborate historic homes with large yards, streets lined with hundred year-old trees and a park loaded with Cherry blossoms. It is one of the few integrated neighborhoods in Newark, or New Jersey. A wonderful neighborhood association holds a dinner and dance party each year. Parking is simple for those who drive, and for the carless, a commute to downtown Newark or New York is a breeze. I can buy exotic and fresh grocery items that I could never find in stores in New York city at much more affordable prices. Our neighborhood is ten minutes from Montclair's restaurants, shops, yoga classes, but our real estate taxes are a fraction of theirs.
 
What I love about the home
One block from Branch Brook Park, designed by Olmstead (who designed Central Park). Gorgeous cherry trees, historic hybrid of purple iris and bluebells . Porch with stone walkways and benches through the backyard. Deep porcelain tub, pedestal sink all original fixtures.

Zillow predicts Newark home values will fall 0% next year, compared to a 1.7% increase for New York Metro as a whole. Among Forest Hill homes, this home is 45.4% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 24.5% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Newark, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 185.4% higher than in New York Metro, and 45.7% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Newark home values from rising as quickly as other regions in New York Metro.
