I am a member of the local MLS board which includes Mahwah, New Jersey. Mahwah is a large and scenic township in northwest Bergen County on the Rockland County, New York, border. It has many county parks (including a ski area), good schools, low taxes and a diversity of housing options from apartments to condos/townhouses to single family homes from $300,000s to milions. It is convenient to several Interstates and major highways. There are are many corporate complexes which help support the town's budget and services. You may want to view some Web sites for elementary, middle and high school rankings. Just enter Bergen County, NJ and then Mahwah, New Jersey. Your price range should afford you an opportunity to find a home on a reasonable sized lot.

Pretty much anywhere along the 287 corridor in Morris County. Somerset County is good too but it's a little far! Good Luck!
