About 4 miles down river from the massive Garrett Mt. development depicted below, the ultimate in small scale subdivisions can be seen at 24-28 Oak Tree Lane in Bloomfield. This little green box is very likely the oldest continually occupied home in the township. Family records kept in the home date back to the original construction c.1860.
This was the Weichert description when it was first listed as 24 Oak Tree for 310k in November 2004:
Family homestead...first time on market...corner property/oversized lot... (101x100) possible subdivision.... Sold 'AS IS'. Buyer resp. for CO . Oil tank in basement. Ample parking but no garage.
Bloomfield’s Historical Society wanted it.
Schweppe/ERA got it for 310K.
Back on the market after a year, this is the Schweppe/ERA description for the 50x100 ft lot:
APPROVED PRE-CONSTRUCTION SINGLE FAMILY PROJECT including subdivided lot, approved architectural & engineering plans & building permits. Current list price does not include construction.
The price: 337K for each lot.
