This Georgian estate, called Meadow View, is a unique property overlooking Branch Brook Park in the wealthy Forest Hill section of Newark. It was built in the 1920s for a jewelry manufacturer and has rounded portico and Corinthian columns, an entrance with 12-ft. ceilings, six working fireplaces, and patterned hardwood flooring. Newark, New Jersey’s largest city and home to an international airport, had one of the country’s highest crime rates but has seen improvements in recent years. Forest Hill, a pre-World War II neighborhood, is one of Newark’s safer areas. It has many historic homes and became a historic district in 1990, according to the Forest Hill Community Assn.
