"Upscale homes in the country, yet central"

Situated inside the crescent of Route 206, easily accessable to Route 1, & 287, and 95 as well. This spot is central to many of the large shopping malls, amusements, and even located so that you can get to two other states shopping malls within the hour, if you so please. It's a 45 minute drive to the Newark airport and a bit over an hour to the one in Philly.
The schools are great, the teachers are top in their fields and there are many after school activities.
Our neighbors are very nice. I can let our kids walk home at night, and I see folks out jogging at all hours in this neighborhood. There are lots of kids about. The bus picks the kids up right out front of the house.
The D&R canal is just over the hill from here and that's a large park running for miles with the canal and river in it. I kayak there all the time.
The snowplows come through right away when it snows. Garbage pickup is a choice between two companies - and both are good. Mail is delivered every weekday but Wednesday. Groceries can be delivered by Peapod, and water deliveries also happen here. Yet it's quiet and peaceful most all of the time.
We've enjoyed our years on this street and have good neighbors. Friendly and enjoyable. Not a bad one in the bunch.
