Branchburg Properties for Sale

Branchburg, New Jersey is a township in Somerset County.  As of the 2010 United States Census, the township's population was 14,459.  Incorporated in 1845, the area now known as Branchburg Township was originally inhabited by the Raritan Indians a tribe of the Lenni-Lenape Indians. By 1686 most of the land was purchased by the Lords proprietors of East Jersey. These Proprietors sold the land in small parcels to numerous settlers, mostly of Dutch or English extraction. Branchburg at that time was located in a large area called East Jersey and encompassed parts of Essex and Middlesex Counties as well. County boundaries were a subject of controversy until 1741 when Somerset County acquired parts of Middlesex and Essex Counties, nearly doubling its size.  Due to the expansion of Somerset County, Branchburg finally lay entirely within the County where it is presently located. Today, Branchburg is a semi-rural area of approximately 20.2 square miles, is eleven miles long and approximately two miles across at its widest point.

Shopping and Dining

There are several small stores and strip malls as well as a “World Class” Shop-Rite supermarket, Starbucks Coffee and Dunkin’ Donuts within Branchburg’s boundaries and several shopping areas nearby including the Bridgewater Commons Mall and the outlet shopping area in nearby Flemington.  Most of the commerce — big box stores, chain restaurants and corporate offices — is found on Routes 202 and 22, which bisect the township.  In addition to nearby diners, Sol Mexican Cantina known is for its authentic Mexican cuisine.  Janina Bistro is restaurant located in nearby Lebanon offering unique Italian Mediterranean fusion dishes, including homemade pastas, steaks, chops, fish and other seafood dishes. For a more upscale restaurant try The Ryland Inn, a historic Township landmark in the village of nearby Whitehouse Station.

Parks and Recreation

Branchburg has a variety of Recreational facilities including White Oak Park located on Baird Road which is the most developed park in the Township. It includes a walking trail,
picnic facilities, tennis courts, handball court, baseball, softball and soccer fields and playground. Other parks include Ten Eyck Park in North Branch, that includes a dog park, Marshall Street Park in Neshanic Station and Old Towne Park located in the Olde Towne Development. Joseph J. Stala Park also located in Neshanic Station, is in the planning stages of development. Golf courses include Somerset County’s Neshanic Valley Golf Course on South Branch Road which is a public golf course and Fox Hollow Golf Club which is a private golf club.


Once primarily a farming community, Branchburg today is a picturesque blend of farmland and residential settings ranging from condominiums to homes on 10-acre parcels.  Halfway between Philadelphia and New York, the township offers many of the desirable traits normally associated with Somerset County: a semirural atmosphere, large homes on sizable properties (some zoned to accommodate horses) and a topography of rolling hills. What it doesn’t have in common with some neighboring towns is high cost.
