To say that Far Hills is a small borough might be an understatement. The relatively young borough, incorporated in 1921, occupies an area that’s less than 5 square miles and has a population of just over 900. But what Far Hills lacks in size and numbers, it surely makes up in character.
Surrounded throughout by rolling hills, vibrant greenery, and peaceful winding roads, homes here are the stuff of dreams. Luxury estates and regular single-family homes are ideal for a quiet suburban lifestyle, less than an hour removed from the New York metropolitan area.
Being a small town, Far Hills shares a number of public amenities and services with a few of its similarly upscale neighbors. It shares a public library, fire department, and first aid crew with Bedminster Township, and a community pool with Bernardsville Borough. Far Hills and Bernardsville also share a common school system, athletics facilities and programs, and civic organizations.
Far Hills, however, is not lacking in features it can boast as its own. The borough is an accommodating community for the equestrian lifestyle and has been the home of the United States Golf Association headquarters since 1972.
Far Hills Country Day School serves approximately 400 students from nursery to eighth grade. Secondary level students attend the exceptional Bernards High School in Bernardsville, contributing to the school’s outstanding educational performance numbers.
