Summit Homes for Sale 


Summit is a family-oriented residential community with light industry set in Union County, New Jersey. Considered an affluent suburb of New York City, Summit is known for its suburban character, tree lined streets and architect-designed houses. Summit is located approximately 20 miles from Manhattan. Summit has the 16th-highest per capita income in the state. Nearly 20% of Summit's residents work in finance and real estate, and the city has long been popular with traders, investment bankers, and money managers. Manhattan's financial elite prefers Summit real estate because of its large houses, good schools and New Jersey Transit rail link to Manhattan's financial district. The unique landscape has had a definite influence in the development of Summit. This tree-dense suburban community has a total area of 6.1 square miles nestled in the hills of the Watchung Reservation. Set into the broken hills, at a 450-foot elevation, Summit sits above Springfield, to the east of Millburn and just northwest, Chatham joins Summit to pinch the broad valley of the Passaic River. With a population of 21,457. Summit’s over 21,000 residents are comprised of an international group speaking 39 languages with a broad economic and ethnic cross-section, largely mirroring the makeup of our nation as a whole. Housing is available to all levels of income including subsidized housing for senior citizens, as well as for low and middle-income families. Originally, “The Summit” hill was a cozy rural farming community of about 300 people until 1837 when the railroad came to sweep over the "The hill” whose name was later shortened to Summit. After the Civil War, Summit became a summer resort area because of its crisp, clean mountain air and convenient proximity to New York City. Summit attracted extremely wealthy people who built extensive summer estates. Increasingly, in the 19th century, Summit served as a nearby getaway spot and "summer destination" for wealthy residents of New York City in search of fresh air via a convenient train ride to the relaxation of an oasis at one of the large hotels, smaller inns or many guest houses. Following World War II, the city experienced a great building boom, as living outside New York City and commuting to work became the fashion. Summit's Downtown Business District is a tapestry of retail and commercial businesses with an abundance of specialty and gift shops, clothing stores, home furnishings, a variety of restaurants of different cuisine including Persian, bakeries, fine wine outlets, movie theatre and ample free parking all within short walking distances. In 2000, Summit’s downtown business district underwent a complete utility infrastructure and beautification project to enhance the quality of life in the community. Underground utility wiring was updated, sidewalks were widened for pedestrian traffic, streets improved, sidewalk lighting added, festive space for markets and special events were provided with street-lined trees and seasonal plantings. The project cost over 4 million dollars. Education is a priority for Summit. Their public, private and parochial schools have continually molded good and able young people with 92 % of the students going onto college, contributing much to the community's development. Just recently, Summit High School was ranked the 6th best high school in the State of New Jersey. Many students return to live and raise a family in their hometown of Summit. Summit offers an array of programs, facilities, and events to capture and educate the community in arts, recreation, cultural and spiritual guidance. Summit has numerous playing fields to include baseball, football, soccer, basketball, tennis, running track and a 9-par Golf Course and a Municipal Pool. Crime is generally not a factor in the city, Many Summit settlers and current residents have attributed significantly to the world's business, industrial and government affairs. More importantly, their relentless dedication for volunteerism has made the Summit community a leader in civic mindedness. The land Summit occupies was purchased from the Indians on October 28, 1664 for "twenty fathoms of trading cloth, two made coats, two guns, two kettles, ten bars of lead and twenty handfuls of powder."
