Metuchen’s age differentiates it from its more modern suburban neighboring towns. Many homes in the area reflect post-Civil War suburban architecture and Italianate design. From the Victorian era horse-watering trough on Middlesex Avenue to its many charming, restored historic homes, Metuchen retains a timeless historic aura.
In addition to the classic homes of Metuchen, there are also smaller starter homes, spacious townhomes, comfortable apartment complexes and planned development communities. Home values range in price, with housing available to suit nearly every budget and need.
The small-town affability of Metuchen can be felt throughout its residential areas, which feature shady tree-lined streets and sidewalks that give way to joggers and pedestrians. What’s more, many of the homes in Metuchen are in close proximity (even walking distance) to the train station and downtown area, making getting around town a cinch. A designated trail system as part of the “Walk Metuchen” program connects nearly all borough homes to these pedestrian-friendly routes into downtown.
With all the attributes of the area, which include excellent educational opportunities, outstanding healthcare, great shopping and cultural districts, it is no wonder why so many people are proud to call Metuchen home.
