I grew up close to Riverwoods and graduated from the New Hope Solebury school district. I can't say enough good things about being raised in such a great town. I recommend the area very highly, especially if you have children. It offers safety, great schools,beautiful scenery and a small town feel without being cut off from major metropolitan areas like Philly and New York. New Hope is also a great place for active living with its river sports, abundant hiking and nature trails and thousands of acres of state park within 15 minutes.
Riverwoods is so desirable because of its walkable proximity to the center of town without being part of the "strip". Many New Jersey workers live there to avoid the much higher property taxes across the river. It's easily commutable to the Pharmaceutical companies along the 202 corridor. People even commute to New York from New Hope.
One of the best things about the New Hope area is the versatility of its homes. If the close "townhouse" feel of Riverwoods wasn't to your liking, I have no doubt that we could find something more your speed without stretching your budget.
My love of the area is why I began selling Real Estate 4 years ago. I revel in welcoming new denizens to the town. Past clients have loved my insiders area tour featuring "The Most Beautiful Place in Bucks County." Care for a tour? 215-534-2873. http://www.michaelcosdon.com or email@example.com.
In Real Estate, the primary and most important factor to a lot of people is location, location, location! Therefore, the close proximity of the community to New Hope and New Jersey make it a desirable location for those people looking for close proximity to work or just being in/near New Hope. Other subdivisions such as Peddler's View (Delucca Builders) , which is in Lahaska/Peddler's Village provide a location further away but close to the village for those who want to live there. The other subdivision if North Pointe (Katz & Ryan Home Builders) which is a bit further away, with lots that have slightly larger lots sizes. All three subdivisions are in the New Hope/Solebury School District. I know all of these communities well and have listed/sold homes within these communities. Please feel free to contact me for any additional information. I encourage you to check my profile out at ColdwellBanker.com or my website, http://www.FrankDolski.com.
