Bigger doesn't necessarily mean better.
Expensive can also take the place of "bigger" in the prior sentence.

What do you guys think?

I think parts of Montclair have really interesting beautiful homes.

I like the houses in Montclair, too. The town I live in MA now, Brookline, has very similar housing stock--it's so beautiful to me.

You have a lot of unique historic homes in Moorestown, it was settled late 1600s. As a result you have some of the best examples of early American history - victorians, colonials, etc., plus historic homes with European influence.

Funny, as an old architecture buff, some of the nicest homes I've seen have been in places such as Newark and Trenton - from when those towns really were the centers of wealth in the State. One home sold in Newark not so long ago that had belonged to Louis Comfort Tiffany. Absolutely stunning detail. In another location would have been worth millions.

Outside of that, Mountain Lakes has some real beauties, as does the Bernardsville/Far Hills area.

Not a fan of 90% of the homes produced in the last 20 years.

I agree with Montclair. I'd also add Summit, Mendham, Rocky Hill and the established areas of Bedminster and Cranbury. They all have beautiful homes that are quite dignified.

There is also an older colonial farmhouse along Georges Road here in South Brunswick that I think is quite stately. If I can, I'll post a few pics tomorrow.
