Beautiful town with bucolic charm, very low taxes, 2 acre minimum properties and only 30 minutes from NYC. There are many historic barns in Saddle River dating back to the 1800's and 23 historic properties throughout town. Wandell Elementary School is second to none with the state's top technology and arts programs, a model STEAM program and high academics. The police and fire departments are also the best of any town.
One of the wealthiest communities in the United States. Homes primarily sell for above $3mm. Great community filled with successful and high achieving residents. Highly recommend for all able to afford.
