68 South Prospect has 7 bedrooms

Let’s face it: When many people think of a big house, they think Montclair. And perhaps rightly so. There are almost three dozen homes on the market now in Montclair with five bedrooms or more, including a 10-bedroom mansion with a price tag of nearly $5 million. That kind of size (and price!) are rare in Verona.

The newly listed home at 68 South Prospect Street has seven bedrooms, and those of us who have been in town for a while remember that, back in the day, it was home to a family with almost that many children. Now, two of the bedrooms are being displayed in the listing as home offices and a third as a guest room.

Here’s what’s happening in the Verona real estate market this weekend, from lowest priced to highest in each category:
