Warren Area Insight

    Who knew that those of us who are fortunate enough to live and work near Warren are in the midst of a national celebrity? In 2009, Money Magazine ranked Warren as the #6 best small town to live in the entire United States! This rating was based on many factors, including the area's quality of living, natural beauty, real estate, schools, business climate, access to recreational activities, and more. As the folks at Money know, there's a lot to love about Warren.

    Located in the picturesque Watchung Mountains of Somerset County, Warren features lovely scenery amidst rolling hills and farmland. And the best part is that much of the county's undeveloped land is owned by some level of government, meaning that it will never be overdeveloped and lose its bucolic serenity. This means that the township will never have to deal with the over development and crowding that sometimes can happen to rural areas close to a major metropolitan area, and maintaining that small town charm is something that everyone in Warren appreciates.

    The school system in Warren has also been nationally recognized. Watchung Regional High School in Warren was ranked in the top 500 public high schools in the United States by Newsweek last year. Watchung Regional was ranked #131 by Newsweek, which used a composite score to determine its rankings based on school counselor availability, SAT/ACT scores, enrollment in advanced classes, graduation rate, and college enrollment rate.

    Warren is a well-to-do area, with many living there who work in New York City. Per capita incomes and real estate values in the township are on the high end, but property taxes are more moderate for an area of this level of affluence. There are abundant parks and hiking trails, and Warren is consequently known as an area favored by outdoors and nature enthusiasts. And all the fun isn't just for people: the Warren area has a number of horse farms, as well as proximity to some of the most well known stables (Lord Stirling in Basking Ridge) and racing events (Far Hills Racing Series) in the northeast region of the United States.

    I've called Warren Township "home" since 1984, and I'm so glad I did. I've watched the town grow, raised my two children here, and will continue to live here, because there's no place I'd rather be.

    The town of Warren has controlled growth, and will never be overdeveloped due to the adherence to the Master Plan. It's a great feeling when buyers tell me that they see open space, farms, and meadows driving around Warren, and then ask if they will be new developments soon. The answer is that the majority of vacant land has been purchased by the town, or county, or state for open space purposes. This protects the town and your investment when purchasing a home.

    The rural feeling has been protected. Warren has grown to include fine dining, convenience of shopping, and all the amenities that our busy lifestyles require. It's located within an hour of NYC, 20 minutes to Newark Airport, close to numerous major highways, and has a wonderful "Blue Ribbon" school system that attracts many of our new residents. Compared to other surrounding counties and towns, the taxes in Warren are moderate and stable.

    Warren offers a myriad of housing perfect for your lifestyle. The majority of the homes are single family, and are situated on 1.5 acre homesites. There are exceptions; single family communities closer to the center of town offering 1/4 to 1/3 acre lots, and The Promenade, an age restricted gated community of townhomes and single family residences. There are no entry level condo or town home communities in Warren.

    Warren is a great place to live. Come visit, and see what our town has to offer. You'll be glad you did.

    Warren Township has completed initial construction of a new Town Hall, located in the municipal complex at 46 Mountain Boulevard. Warren residents were allowed to tour the new building as part of its "soft" opening on December 29, 2016. The outer construction is now complete, but the new offices won't be up and running until the middle of February.

    The building is over 26,000 square feet and will serve as the new home of the township municipal offices. This includes the Warren Police and Office of Emergency Management, located on the lower (first) level. The second level will house the township Recreation, Planning/Zoning, Engineering, and Construction Departments, as well as the office of the Tax Assessor and Tax Collector. On the third floor, offices for the Township Clerk, Human Resources and Township Administrator, Sewage Authority, the Board of Health, the Fire Chief, and the Purchasing and Finance offices will be located.

    The current offices will be open until Friday, February 10. The staff will move into the new township offices on the following Monday and Tuesday, February 13 and 14; the offices are closed to the public on those days to allow staff the time to acclimate to their new building. The new offices will be officially open for business in on Wednesday, February 15.

    The new offices have beautiful woodwork identifying each office. Like Warren itself, It's a first class place that residents and visitors alike can be proud of.

    Warren is a picture of bucolic tranquility with 19.3 square miles nestled in and surrounded by the Watchung Mountains, Washington Valley and the Passaic and Dead Rivers. There's no shortage of ways to take in the natural beauty for Warren's residents and guests. There are many options for hiking, biking, and enjoying the outdoors.

    Warren's parks offer outdoor recreation and beautiful scenery. For those with small children, visit Elm Park off of Liberty Corner Road for two playgrounds, one perfect for children under five and another suitable for children from five to 12; please note there is no parking at this location. Off the same road but with more options for adults, Greenwood Meadows Park is so popular with residents that the township has established a one-hour limit on being there when there's a line to get in. Have you ever heard of a public park having a queue line? Greenwood Meadows has a playground area, a softball/multi-sports field, tennis courts, a 9-hole "disc golf" course (where the object is to throw a Frisbee into a small net), and a gazebo for public use. For golf lovers out there, visit Warrenbrook Park off of Warrenville Road, which includes a full 18-hole golf course, pro shop and clubhouse, plus swimming pools for adults and children and cross-country skiing courses.

    This area of New Jersey has a plethora of nature trails available for the avid hiker, and Warren has its share. Codington Woods, located on 23 Mount Horeb Road and 29 Casale Drive, is 45 wooded acres of hilltop trails that form two loops. You can see two farms, a fruit orchard of apple, pear, and cherry trees, a sheep pasture, and hardwood groves. The terrain is rocky and uneven, but paved, and is perfect for more experienced hikers. For those looking for scenic views of the water during a hike, look to the Dealaman Nature Trail and Pond (182 Mount Horeb Road) or Ehlens Brook (12 Timber Ridge) with five brooks and nature paths near each. If you're a fan of wildflowers, don't miss Glenhurst Meadows, featuring over two miles of mostly level trails that have views of wildflower meadows along the Passaic River. Bring your camera!

    Nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts of all stripes will find Warren a gem to visit. That's why so many have come to call it home.

    Many people who live in the major metropolitan New York City area love the vibe and action of the city, but also yearn for a quiet, spacious, upscale place to call home. Does that sound like you or someone you know? If so, you would be a perfect addition to Warren, New Jersey, and it would be perfect for you.

    Nestled in the verdant Watchung Hills of Somerset County and less than 35 miles from New York City, Warren is particularly noted for space: the average house has almost an acre and a half of land. Many Warren residents commute to New York City, so needless to say the extra living space is greatly appreciated! There's also a prevalence of farmland in Warren, with 74 tracts of land classified as farms in the last census. It's no accident that Warren is known for picturesque scenery and fresh produce. Speaking of produce, Warren is the home of Windsong Farm - the site of the well-known Farmer John’s Organic Produce, the first organic farm in New Jersey.  

    Warren's attractiveness as a community combined with its proximity to New York, favorable property taxes for an affluent rural area, and access to major roads (287, 22, 78) all make it a great area to work as well as live. Over 600 businesses call Warren home. This area also houses corporate headquarters of some of the country's biggest companies, such as Verizon, Citigroup, and Chubb. Nearby attractions include upscale shopping (such as the Short Hills mall) and restaurants.

    Add all of this up, and it's no secret that Warren is one of northern New Jersey's most attractive places to live. And the secret is out: Warren was voted as one of the top towns to live in New Jersey Monthly magazine in 2013 as well as the sixth "Best Place to Live" in the United States by Money magazine in 2006. (Sixth place is really good when you're talking about the entire country.) If you're looking to settle in an upscale, rural area with access to New York - somewhere that embodies the best New Jersey has to offer - there's no better place to be than Warren.

    Warren, NJ
    Warren Township is rich in history and promises a great future. The Lenape Indians were the original inhabitants of what is now Warren Township. In the early 1700's, European farmers began to settle the area and it was eventually incorporated in 1806 from part of surrounding towns. The town was named after General Joseph Warren who was a hero of the Battle of Bunker Hill during the American Revolution.

    Nestled in the Watchung Mountains, Warren is comprised of 19.3 square miles. Residents and elected officials work hard to keep the rural character and charm of Warren while recognizing that there will be growth. Warren has been described as the "greenest place in New Jersey" due to the town’s beauty. This town is also desirable due to excellent property taxes and convenient location.

    Commuters love that Warren is less than 35 miles to Manhattan. Businesses and residents alike choose Warren as their home because of easy access to major roads such as Routes 78, 22 and 287. This town is also convenient to many major shopping centers and great restaurants.
