  • Cranbury is a town with so much to offer! Located in Middlesex County, close to Routes 130 and 1, and bordered by Plainsboro, East Windsor, and Princeton, this charming, historic village captures both the oldest and newest aspects of New Jersey living. From the Cranbury Inn, once a pit stop for pre-revolutionary figures, to more modern home developments, like Cranbury Greene and Cranbury Estates, Cranbury has a bit of everything and is a town that its inhabitants seem to adore.

    The Strawberry Festival took place this past weekend. The Cranbury Historical Society keeps a close watch on preserving the features of the many homes that align Cranbury's glorious main byway. There will be more festivals as the summer progresses. Get out to Main Street and enjoy a warm summer afternoon. A stroll along Main Street is a walk back through history in a town very much a part of a modern suburban New Jersey lifestyle.

    Cranbury is a fantastic, small, historic town with gorgeous older homes and buildings, great restaurants and shops with a real, small-town feel. But what I find relaxing to do in Cranbury is spending a lazy morning fishing on Brainard Lake right in the center of town. The lake isn't very large (15 acres) but there's a good variety of fish here.

    Some people like to fish at the eastern side of the lake by the dam near Route 130 but that's too noisy and less attractive for me. I like either the west end right on South Main Street across from the fire station or at the section of the lake that borders Village Park (off of Maplewood Avenue). The latter section is more peaceful and bucolic while the Main Street area is nice if you want to take a quick break for a snack or stroll around town. Surprisingly, this small lake was a regional winner in NJ Monthly Magazine's 2014 Best of NJ for best fishing hole!
  • Cranbury is a charming town, with much historical significance. According to its township website, Cranbury is one of the oldest towns in America. George Washington set up his headquarters here, Aaron Burr changed horses here, and Alexander Hamilton found lodging here. The Cranbury Inn, dating back to the 1700's, gives visitors a glimpse of Cranbury's past as it sits in the center of this wonderful community. The Cranbury Historical and Preservation Society website link below provides more details about 18th century transportation and local lodging in the area.

    Now bordering South Brunswick on one side, Monroe on another, and Plainsboro on the third, Cranbury retains its vintage feel while very much remaining a part of the wider community, close to shopping, major thoroughfares and all that Central Middlesex County has to offer.
    The Cranbury School serves pre-K through grade eight. And high school aged students attend Princeton High School where they are bused to and fro.The downtown Main Street is dotted with boutiques, ice cream parlors, Cranbury Pizza and an adorable post office. Some of the older, larger homes are priced at more than $1 million, while some of the newer homes nearby are priced in the mid-$400s to the high $700s. Taxes are lower here than in the neighboring towns of Princeton and Plainsboro.

    Cranbury is a very appealing area for those looking for an historic home or at least a town center with an historic ambience, excellent schools, and easy access to NYC and Philadelphia. But if you see a home you like, do not hesitate. There are few homes available here and when they do come on the market, they are soon gone!
