Berkeley Heights is where professionals go to escape the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple. It also happens to be one of the most family-friendly boroughs in New Jersey. The general effect of the town, nestled in the Watchung mountains, remains very small town and almost rural. It's very much a town that will appeal to you if you would like to live in the country but also need to live close to work.As far as a home is concerned, Berkeley Heights can provide you with a choice. Much of the town offers tree-lined streets with a variety of modern and vintage homes and some new construction. An early community of note is the 67-acre "Free Acres" which was established in 1910 and originally designed as an artist retreat. Things are a little different there and they pay taxes to the community who in turn pays a lump sum to the Township. However, the enclave owns and operates its water system, a swimming pool and maintains the streets which have no lamps or light posts to preserve the rural and rustic ambiance of the area.
