Watchung New Jersey

THE 6.2-square-mile community of Watchung sweeps across two ridges of the Watchung Mountains, wedged between New Jersey Route 22 and Interstate 78. But unlike many other bedroom communities, Watchung offers large properties, undulating hills, narrow winding roads, abundant wildlife and two lakes: Lake Watchung and Best Lake.

''The typical new home here is 6,000 to 8,000 square feet on an acre and a half,'' Mr. Longo explained. ''The buyers are in their 30's and 40's with school-age children.''

Several areas are known for luxurious, expensive houses, like Acorn Road, where five new houses are now under construction, or Knightsbridge and Gallowae Roads, overlooking Best Lake. Large homes are sprinkled throughout the borough, however, because a shortage of building lots has led to the purchase of older homes, so they can be demolished and replaced by larger ones. One street with a number of ''teardowns'' is Johnston Drive, which has a commanding view of the Manhattan skyline, more than 20 miles away.

Basking Ridge New Jersey

Attractions include the highly rated school system, the wide range of housing, lower taxes and a reasonable commute to New York. What some may be surprised to find is a town of 28,350 residents that blends a rural setting with an urban vibe. The former comes from deep history and vast open space, both of which residents work hard to preserve. The latter is credited to the eclectic population, and to the many recreational, business and cultural possibilities.The Bernards Township School District serves a total of 2,750 pupils in five schools -- two covering K-2, one for grades 3-5, a middle school for grades 6-8 and Ridge High School.

Of this year's 163-student high school graduating class, 95 percent took the S.A.T.'s. Their mean scores were 478 in verbal and 545 in math, each of which is about 50 points above the national average.

The high school offers 28 advanced-placement courses, which School Superintendent Dalin K. Showalter says is comparable to offerings at schools with twice the student body of 670. Of this year's graduates, 92 percent are going on to higher education.

In 1986, Ridge High was one of five high schools in New Jersey to receive the Federal Department of Education's School Recognition Award for Outstanding Progress Toward Excellence in Education.
