Montgomery Township, NJ Suburbia with a Natural Twist
Montgomery, a place rich with agriculture and history is located in the heart of Somerset County, NJ . Montgomery Township combines rural and suburban living which offers residents a refreshing lifestyle. The large township consists of several small sub sections including Belle Mead, Blawenburg, Bridgeport, Dutchtown, Fairview, Harlingen, Plainville, Rocky Hill, Skillman and Zion. The land in Montgomery has roots dating back to before the American Revolution and was once home to Native American Indians and historic battles. Located only an hour from New York City and an hour and a half from Philadelphia, Montgomery has a unique “subrural” atmosphere, making it a great place to buy a home.
Montgomery offers great real estate and a community to live in while preserving the natural beauty of the surrounding area. Unlike some townships that take over and destroy farm land, suburban Montgomery embraces and incorporates itself with its natural surroundings. The township is a state leader in land preservation with over 8,000 acres of preserved farmland. Montgomery has the programs and budget in place to make sure the town will maintain this trend into the future. The area is filled with parks, rivers and trails and is an excellent place to go for walks and commune with nature.
Woven into the habitat are numerous gorgeous homes ranging from townhouses, to large estates to colonials. Imagine owning a beautiful house laced with organic scenery and lush vegetation. Although the area is scenic, there is never a shortage of fun things to do. Skillman is home to the Montgomery Center for the Arts which features classes, exhibitions and workshops for both children and adults. Six miles away in the center of Princeton is historic Nassau Street which features world class theaters, dining and more.
If you are looking to live in an area that is close to fun things to do, but also captures the true essence of the Garden State, then Montgomery may be a perfect match for you. The “subrural” feeling of the township offers a living arrangement like no other.
