New Home Communities in Somerset County

Successful people have been using this beautiful farming county as a retreat for a long time. Today it is estimated to be the ninth-wealthiest county in the country. Residents understand that simply being wealthy isn't enough--therefore they give back to their hometown. The result is that Somerset County today is a wonderful place to live.

 

The Duke Farms are one "perk" of living in Somerset. These grounds, once the private estate of the powerful Duke family, have been retooled as a public conservatory. The natural beauty of the farms should remind you very quickly that you're in the "Garden State" now. To fully immerse yourself in the meadows and lakes of the farm, there are 18 miles of trails to explore. Hiking and biking aren't your only options though. You can also cross-country ski through the property when weather permits. Butterflies frequently take shelter here, so keep your ears peeled for word that the butterflies have come home to roost. You can even take gardening classes and learn how to recreate the natural splendor of Duke Farms in your own backyard.

Another aspect of life in Somerset is how old everything is! (Except your beautiful new home, of course.) People have been making their home here since before colonial times. The local Meadows Foundation is dedicated toward the Dutch and English part of Somerset County's heritage, preserving homes and businesses with names like the Van Liew-Suydam House, the Van Wickle House, and the Hageman House and Barn. These antique homes are a testament to the architectural genius of New Jerseyans for the past three centuries. Take a tour of one of these homes at Tulipwood, an 1892 (and thus, later) example of "old English" house design.

If you like to spend a Saturday on the links, and you're known for your low scores in your favorite sport, Somerset County has much to entertain you, starting with the Trump National Golf Club. (Yes, that Trump.) The course is well-respected within the industry, though, winning the approval of the Metropolitan Golf Writers Association, who called Trump's National Golf Clubs the "Family of the Year" in 2011, and the New Jersey Golf Course Owners Association, who elected the course as their 2011 and 2013 "Course of the Year." That's the biggest and best-known course, but there are others. Quail Brook and Warrenbrook Golf Course are both free and open to the public as part of the Somerset County Parks program. There are also other golf clubs such as Fox Hollow, Royce Brook, and Fiddler's Elbow Golf Clubs.

If you're raising a family, you may be wondering what this city has to offer you. No worries: Somerset County focuses on the well-being of its youngest residents. Most local schools receive good ratings on school-information site GreatSchools.org. When your kids are off-duty for the week, take them to the Somerset Children's Museum, where they can explore a wide range of educational topics such as science and the arts in a hands-on way.
