These large lots provide the canvas for incredible homes ranging from stately historic residences to palatial contemporary masterpieces. No two homes in Saddle River are exactly alike—architectural styles within the community include grand stone manors, elegant English country estates, and enchanting French chateaus.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Saddle River is named after the scenic waterway that courses through the community. The Saddle River Inn is a romantic dining destination housed within a rustic 1790s barn on the riverbank. Chef Jamie Knott’s elegant French-influenced dishes have drawn rave reviews from The New York Times and Zagat and won numerous awards from New Jersey Monthly, OpenTable, and 201 Magazine. The menu changes seasonally and features prime dry-aged beef, line-caught seafood, and organic local produce. On the opposite riverbank, Saddle River Cafe is a more casual eatery operated by the same team behind The Saddle River Inn. The menu here is light and focused on nutrition with seasonal entrées, açai bowls, and cold-pressed juices. Saddle River Cafe’s thoughtful dishes are served in an airy arboretum-like dining space with lots of plants and natural light. Waterford Gardens is stocked with everything you need for your own ponds and water features. This pond supply specialist store is one of the nation’s premier water lily farms. Waterford Gardens also sells top-quality koi and other pond fish as well as all leading brands of pumps, filters, fish food, and medication. Many more shopping and dining options are less than a ten minutes’ drive from Saddle River in Paramus, which has four major shopping malls offering some of the East Coast’s most extensive upscale retail options. Garden State Plaza is the largest of the four malls with around 335 businesses. You can also shop at leading fashion brand boutiques and home design stores at The Shops at Riverside, numerous specialty stores and unique high-end supermarket Stew Leonard’s at Paramus Park, and steeply discounted labels at The Outlets at Bergen Town Center.
