Featured Property - 361 North Ridgewood Road, South Orange

Last week, I had a personal tour of the well-known Linden Lawn Estate at 351 North Ridgewood Road, across from Flood's Hill in South Orange. For me, the most striking room of this exquisite mansion was the cherry-paneled library. Not only did it feature a carved fireplace and decorative moldings; but its focal point was the sun shining through the stained glass window over the desk. Two French explorers are painted on the decorative panel which was originally from Charles Edison's home, son of Thomas Edison.

​Linden Lawn offers 7 bedrooms and 5.2 baths of luxurious living space. This South Orange property is listed for $1,499,000. If you would like more information on this property, please contact me at
