What We Love About Far Hills

Nestled in the heart of the Somerset Hills, Far Hills is a hidden gem that offers a slice of tranquil, suburban bliss. With its rolling landscapes reminiscent of the English countryside and a small, yet tight-knit community of about 1,047 residents, Far Hills feels like a step back in time to a simpler, more serene way of life.

As someone who has fallen deeply in love with Far Hills, we can’t help but admire its beautiful farmlands that stretch as far as the eye can see, seamlessly blending into the neighboring Bernardsville. These expansive green spaces not only offer breathtaking views but also embody the essence of rural elegance. It’s this picturesque setting that forms the backdrop to our lives here, providing a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Incorporated in 1921, Far Hills has a rich history that is deeply woven into the fabric of the community. The borough’s development was significantly influenced by land developer Evander H. Schley in the late 19th century, shaping it into the charming enclave it is today. This history is celebrated and preserved, adding depth and character to our town.

One of the crowning jewels of Far Hills is the Far Hills Race Meeting, a prestigious steeplechase event that dates back to the 19th century. This annual event is not just a highlight on the social calendar; it’s a reflection of the borough’s longstanding equestrian traditions and a testament to the community’s strong bond. It’s a day when everyone comes together, reinforcing the tight-knit fabric of our community.

Education is another cornerstone of the Far Hills experience. The Far Hills Country Day School is renowned for its commitment to excellence, offering a nurturing environment for students from preschool to Grade 8. As a parent or a community member, there’s a profound sense of pride in having such a quality institution shaping the minds of our future generations.

Living in Far Hills is about embracing a high quality of life. It’s about enjoying the simple pleasures—whether it’s a leisurely stroll along a country lane, the camaraderie of a community gathering, or the peaceful solitude of a sunset over the farmlands. It’s here that you can truly appreciate the beauty of nature, the value of community, and the richness of history interwoven into daily life.

For us, Far Hills is more than just a place to live; it’s a place to belong. It’s where the beauty of the land meets the warmth of the people, creating a community that’s both exclusive and embracing. In Far Hills, we’re not just neighbors; we’re a family, united by our love for this beautiful borough and our commitment to preserving its unique way of life. It’s this combination of picturesque landscapes, rich history, and tight-knit community spirit that makes Far Hills not just a desirable place to call home, but a cherished one.
