Welcome to Hunterdon County! Whitehouse Station is located in Readington Township. Readington boasts Blue Ribbon & Star Schools! It is a wonderful area to raise a family. I grew up and live in Readington Township. If you would like to get a better feel for the area, please check my website, You will find schools info, transportation, recreation, etc. All in one source! You will truly be amazed at the beauty of our area, yet the convenience to major cities (NYC is THE CITY!), sports, NJ shore, hiking & skiing, etc. Once again welcome!

If you are committed to Whitehouse, which is a great area with highly-rated schools, then the names of the developments you may want to consider are: Whitehouse Village (townhomes), Cedarbrook ( 2 & 3 BR condominiums), and Lake Cushetunk (townhomes and single family.) They are all located on the Hwy 22 corridor. They are not rental communities per se, but there are owners who have listed their properties for rent with real estate agents. Price and length of term vary and are subject to negotiation. Any of the qualified agents here will be glad to help you! Good luck.

Hi John, you'll find great options in Branchburg, Readington and neighboring Bridgewater. Depending on your requirements, there are many townhomes and homes to choose from.

I'm sending a link to a NYTimes article about the impressions of one homebuyer - who ultimately did select the Branchburg area over other options as a great value.

A great resource to evaluate the school systems is the Star Ledger (our local paper) Report Card - working in Whitehouse Station, you could live in Hunterdon or Somerset Counties so broaden your view to include options in both. For instance, I assisted a family with a purchase (Trulia Buyer incidentally!) in Tewksbury in Hunterdon County - workplace is in Whitehouse Station, so consider that an option too.

And finally here is a gallery of available rental options in communities that you may consider:…

I do business in both Hunterdon and Somerset County and regularly work with relocating buyers. I would be happy to assist in any way.
