Chester Properties for Sale

Chester Township's  beautiful hillsides and wooded terrain make it one of Morris County's most picturesque municipalities. Many farms and estates still dot the landscape. Although the Township has experienced rapid development recently, zoning practices and selective development have preserved the municipality's rural character.  At present Mendham Township has a population of 1,649.

Shopping and Dining

 The Township is completely residential with the exception of one restaurant, with The Borough being home to all of the shops, stores restaurants and other businesses in the area.  In the center of the Borough lies an historic village business district with many of the original structures still standing and in use.  Charming and quaint are just a few words to describe this part of the Borough, which includes a plethora of shops, restaurants and services ranging from a drug store, deli, a gourmet Italian food specialty store (La Famiglia), jewelry store, antique shop, cycling store, hair and nail salons, a spa, gardening center, bank and more.  Other points of interest include the Village Shopping Center serving residents of both the Borough and the Township.  Truly a one-stop location for your everyday needs such as a King’s super market, liquor store, florist, dry cleaner, book store, florist, several restaurants, banks, jewelry store, gift shop and plenty more. 

Parks and Recreation

Along with the many parks in Mendham is Brookside Beach which is a fantastic way to enjoy a summer filled with special events and family activities for all ages.  Brookside Beach offers a sandy beach for family recreation which includes a snack stand that sells hot/cold food/drinks/desserts, a new sound system so patrons can enjoy music, a separate lap and swim team areas, a picnic area, volleyball, tetherball, and horse shoes.  There is also a first rate health club located just behind the Village Shopping Center called the Mendham Health and Racquet Club.


Both the Borough and the Township offer a broad variety of homes, from antique colonials, grand Victorians, luxurious contemporaries to sprawling gracious estate homes and farms. The local landscape includes streams, parkland, tall oaks and rolling hills which are all reminiscent of a classic Norman Rockwell painting.  Despite the present-day transformation from a rural farming community to one of New Jersey’s more affluent residential suburbs, both Mendham Township and The Borough retains its early character through carefully preserved homes, farm buildings, and villages.  These are living remnants of Mendham’s past when people worked where they lived in a natural setting, away from the factories and mills of the big city, pursuing economic independence and the American dream.

Schools, Health, Transportation

The Borough has an excellent public elementary school system, the Chester School District. Secondary school students attend West Morris Mendham High School. In addition, many fine private schools are available within the region.  The school was the 45th-ranked public high school in New Jersey out of 328 schools statewide in New Jersey Monthly magazine's September 2012 cover story on the state's "Top Public High Schools", after being ranked 26th in 2010 out of 322 schools listed.

Because of its close proximity to Morristown, commuters can drive just a few minutes east to access the New Jersey Transit midtown-direct Morris & Essex line express train which takes 57 minutes to reach New York Penn Station and 40 minutes to reach Hoboken, in addition to other major commuter highways, as well as access to Morristown Municipal Airport and Morristown Medical Center.  Newark Liberty International Airport is only 45 minutes away by car.  Heading west in the opposite direction just a few short miles is the charming town of Chester, known for its historic main street village shopping area and access to other major commuter highways.
