Hi Rachael,

Walkable towns close to countryside are quite a few in NJ, namely in the Central NJ area,

1. Lawrence
2. Hopewell , Pennington
3. Allentown NJ

A Local Real Estate agent whose services cover outlying areas as well, can assist best in understanding your priorities and making suggestions on the most suitable areas, depending on whether there is a commute to consider, or you prefer the Top 10 schools VS the Top 100.

You'll find several of the Central NJ school districts in the Top 100 as well as those on the Top 10 list.

Working with an Agent who has years of experience in Global Relocation is a BIG plus .

I have moved many families from Country-to-country, coast to coast & state to state , seamlessly and i their desired time frame.

Please contact directly for a No-obligation consultation.

I utilize the newest technology to make it as simple & convenient as possible.

Thanks for all your fantastic answers and links. We move to the US this October so your answers are a great headstart for information.
Coming from the UK, I like the idea of walkable towns close to countryside. Goegraphically Flemington sounds a great place...now to just check out whether it's an affordable place! LoL.

Hi Rachael, I'm sending along a link to the recently released NJ Monthly ranking of High Schools - you'll see that Hunterdon Central is ranked in the top 100:

I'm also sending along a link to an "unofficial website" that has some good info and photos that will give you a feel for the community:

And finally, a link to the township website: http://www.historicflemington.com/

You'll find all styles of living in Flemington and a wide array of price points. When I think of Flemington I think of strong youth sports and activities and SHOPPING - great outlet center there. You've also got great access to highways.

Camille, the similarity in our answers was unintentional on my part. I think we were both typing our answers at the same time and you finished first! When I began my response, there were no other answers yet posted. Otherwise, I would not have repeated your sentiments. Thanks.

It's a great area. Schools are very highly rated. You have a choice between Flemington boro, which is a charming older town with many historic buildings, both residential and commercial. There is a "strollable" downtown with nice restaurants and boutiques. The surrounding township of Raritan has a nice mix of affordable single-family and townhouse developments, blended with larger-lot subdivisions with lovely views of actual working farms.

Year-round, Hunterdon County and the Flemington area offer enticing cultural and recreational opportunities.
A few examples: Balloon Festival, 4-H Fair, Turkey Trot, local wineries, farm markets, Liberty Village outlets, Round Valley reservior.

I would be happy to introduce you to the area and help you find a home. Please contact me!

I relocated my family here almost 10 years and I can’t think of any other place I’d rather live. The schools are excellent and we have everything from fresh Jersey farm vegetables to the huge malls a few miles away. It’s the best combination of farm and suburbs if you ask me.
If you’re looking for more information or would like a relocation package just let me know I’m happy to help. Flemington is where my office is located and I reside myself. You can get more information on school reports, maps, county information and available housing all on my website http://www.justjerseyrealestate.com. Contact me anytime.
