Welcome to Saddle River
Saddle River is a private community of grand estates and horse farms located within an hour of Manhattan. Exclusive and highly desirable, Saddle River’s beautiful bucolic landscape is adorned with mesmerizing properties of the very highest quality. Saddle River also has the lowest property taxes in the state, offering significant savings compared to any other New Jersey community.
The architecture is breathtaking, and no two homes are alike. Zoning restrictions require all lot sizes to be at least two acres, and some of the most luxurious properties extend well beyond this. The space and grandeur of Saddle River’s real estate is hard to beat this close to New York City. Expect stone-brick country manors, elegant Tudors and Colonials, daring contemporary masterpieces, and majestic, palace-like structures with magnificent amenities inside and out.
