Just shy of 10 sq. miles, with a population of 20-21,000, Millburn NJ is home to Short Hills, an unincorporated community equipt with its own train station. Attractions in Millburn include the South Mountain Reservation, The Mall at Short Hills and the Paper Mill Playhouse, an established regional theater with 1,200-seats that has been designated “The State Theatre of New Jersey”. Short Hills NJ also boasts the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum and Bird Sanctuary – A site owned by the daughter of Short Hills founder Stewart Hartshorn with a 16 acre park and 3 miles of trails. Says a NY Times article from 2000, “The residential area of Short Hills is characterized by winding, hilly roads, bordered by thick stands of oaks. Behind them, often shielded from public view by sumptuous flower gardens, are some of the country’s best examples of 19th-century residential architecture. The rest of the town, known as the Millburn section, is laid out more conventionally, with neat streets and a mixture of building styles — small turn-of-the-century workers’ houses, Victorians, Tudors, Cape Cods and 1950’s ranches and colonials — on smaller lots, some just 36 feet wide.” Due to Short Hills price points, a single family in Millburn NJ can range from the $500,000’s through $8,000,000 with more inventory in the higher ranges.
