Your Future Home in Franklin Lakes

Luxury Living in Natural Beauty

Ensconced in beautiful foliage and serene, winding roads, every home in Franklin Lakes feels like its own private forest. Snuggled between Wyckoff and Oakland, residents have quick access to Route 208 which runs through the middle of the borough and merges with Route 4, making for a 30-minute drive into Manhattan. 
The population of Franklin Lakes (just about 11,000) is comparable to its neighboring towns, keeping consistent with the small town, tight-knit communities in this part of Bergen County. You’ll find luxury homes with sprawling estates, historical mansions with original architecture, and plenty of mid-range colonials to choose from. 
Residents enjoy the fact that they can get all their shopping done at the two main retail areas about three miles away from each other. Here you can find all the essential needs like food stores, coffee shops and other “downtown” staples, but within minutes you’re back to the quaint tree-lined neighborhoods away from the hustle and bustle. 
Natural beauty is definitely the biggest draw for people searching for homes in Franklin Lakes. On most properties, you’re more likely to hear a bubbling stream instead of a highway. There are plenty of walking trails and paths for a casual morning stroll, and more advanced hiking trails around the picturesque Franklin Lakes Nature Preserve. This outdoor space also boasts a huge 75-acre lake, surrounded by multiple areas for fishing, kayaking, birdwatching and much more; truly a nature-lover’s paradise. There are even more breathtaking landscapes to enjoy at Parsons Pond Park on the other end of town with walkways and picnic areas plus recreational ball fields.
After enjoying all nature has to offer, treat yourself to a nice dinner out along Franklin Avenue where you’ll find a cuisine for every palate. There’s exquisite Japanese at Sushi Cocoro, homemade pizza and traditional Italian fare at Pazza, or a high-end French meal at The Chef’s Table. The choices continue with restaurants offering Mediterranean, Chinese, and American dishes galore, all within a small radius.
All of this coupled with an excellent public school system and plenty of clubs and activities for seniors make Franklin Lakes an ideal place for raising and family or settling down after retirement. If you’re ready for that next step home, this Bergen County gem could be just what you’re looking for.
