In Cranbury, you will find historic homes as well as new developments, all set in a charming and lovely township in Middlesex County. Surrounded by larger towns, most people who live in the Township are, as was reported in the NY Times in a February 25, 2014 article, “initially drawn to Cranbury’s quaint central village, where a mix of historic residential and commercial properties offer a central gathering place for many of the town’s 3,857 residents even if they don’t all choose to live there.” Cranbury has approximately 200 buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a community that is close-knit and adoring of their neighborhood and their local businesses. From a wonderful pizza shop, to the very historic and well-known Cranbury Inn, the downtown is truly the heart of the community as the New York Times noted.
The Cranbury School serves about 550 students from pre-K through eighth grade, after which students will attend Princeton High School. The Cranbury School was twice recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and the Princeton High School is consistently rated highly. Cranbury Brook preserve, created for walking, bird-watching, fishing, and jogging, is approximately 14 acres of land dedicated for passive recreation and natural beauty, right in the heart of town. An abundance of surrounding farmland and easy access to Routes 130 (with the nearby Park ‘n Ride) and 1, as well as the Princeton Junction Train Station, makes Cranbury a unique place to live. Bordered by Plainsboro on one side and South Brunswick and West Windsor on the others, Cranbury is a well-loved community with homes priced in the range of the mid-$300s (for homes in the 55+ community of Four Seasons @ Historic Cranbury) through the high $900s and into the million dollar ranges for some of the historic homes on Main Street and in the newer developments.
