Some of New Jersey's most beautiful countryside is here.

  • Description

    In Hunterdon County, N.J., in the west-central part of the state, small towns up and down the Delaware River are lined with historical houses, charming business districts and mesmerizing Delaware River views. Lambertville, directly on the Delaware across from New Hope, Pa., is the largest of the river towns. This former mill town is now a busy hub for art galleries and antique shops, not to mention a great array of restaurants and some unique boutiques. Its housing stock is primarily historical. Residents choose it for many reasons, chief among them its proximity to employment in the busy Trenton, Princeton and Somerville areas. They can return home each evening to a sedate, community-oriented town.

    Stockton and Frenchtown, just north on the river from Lambertville, also offer a charming quality of life. Stockton has a small commercial district with a highly regarded wine store and a busy farmer’s market on weekends (very much a favorite stop for locals and visitors, alike), plus several restaurants and a relatively small but appealing residential area. North of Stockton, Frenchtown is a larger town with many shops and an array of restaurants. It’s the closest point for New York City commuters, so quite a few people opt for weekend homes in greater Frenchtown. Daily bus service is available from Lambertville and Frenchtown to New York.

    “Inland” from Stockton, Sergeantsville (pronounced “sur-gents-ville” if you wish to sound like a local) is a little crossroads village with a historical tavern, a few shops, a local radio station (WDVR) and a general store that serves food, making it a favorite stop for bicyclists. This is very much a farming area with swaths of rolling fields, equestrian properties and weekend country retreats for city residents.

    The school district serving this area is Hunterdon County Regional, and there are numerous private schools if one is willing to drive toward Princeton or over the river into Pennsylvania.

    Hunterdon County’s proximity to New York and Princeton, N.J., is just one reason it remains one of the wealthiest counties in the U.S. It has many areas that are still quite rural, large farm properties, equestrian properties and some true hidden estates.
