159 Mercer Place

South Orange, NJ

Nestled in the heart of Tuxedo Park this 4-bedroom, 2.2-bath Colonial has been entirely updated with a contemporary open concept, which translates into easy living and a perfect layout for entertaining.  The home has a great flow, loads of natural light and rich hardwood flooring throughout. Due to its fresh, modern design, it was recently selected and used for a commercial shoot by a Fortune 500 company!

The first level features a lovely entry vestibule with a coat closet and space for a bench. The bright living room features a wood-burning fireplace on one side and large feature window with beautiful details on the other. With two seating areas in the main living space, you can cozy up with a good book in front of the fireplace or binge watch your favorite TV shows in the main living room. The high ceilings give the rooms a nice airy feel and the screened porch with new slate floors is perfect for taking the party outside.

The fully remodeled kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances opens to the spacious dining room which includes a great butlers' pantry/ bar area on one side and breakfast bar on the other.  This open layout makes for super functional modern living. There is also a first floor powder room off the kitchen.


This home has 3 spacious bedrooms (all with great closet space!) on the second floor which share a large full bath with a large soaker tub and hallway linen closet.


 As you take the stairs to the third floor private master suite, you will find all the amenities you could dream of, including beautiful exposed wood beams, double closets and a master bath with a walk-in rain shower, double vanity and gorgeous tree top views!


The finished lower level offers a spacious recreation room with exposed beams, giving the room a nice modern loft feel. There is plenty of storage and a fabulous laundry and powder room combination that you will love to retreat to when doing the laundry!


It isn’t just a catchphrase, it is the most important factor you should be considering when buying a home!  This home is perfectly situated on a tree-lined street in the Tuxedo Park neighborhood of South Orange, NJ. Here you have the serenity and community feel you have always wanted from the suburbs, but you are only minutes away from the bustling downtown center of South Orange shops, restaurants, parks, and train to NYC (with a 30 min commute to Penn Station!)

Jitney bus service to the train station is just around the corner! This service transports residents to and from the South Orange NJ Transit Train Station. It has several pick-up locations in the neighborhood (see below) and aligns its schedule with the NYC train schedule.
