Wow, you could be talking about me. I was just in the exact same situation. Large home and taxes, third just left for college. We made the decision to downsize to a home that made more sense for the two of us that are mostly there and of course enough bedrooms for when the kids do return and visit. In the long run after the expense of college and everything else, you must do what is best for you now. The economy not being the same as years ago you must weigh your options and do what is best for you financially.
It turns out that my kids love my new home and find it "cozy" and more initiate. Its not small by any means by its not enormous either. The most important thing is not the actual house but the family inside, the kids will adjust and come see you wherever you are. Turns out now I'm close to the shore and its an added bonus!
Feel free to call me and discuss. I can share with you your options.

Susanne, thanks for your question. I too have heard mixed things about Marlboro's program. How old is the child you will have entering the Special Ed program? While I don't have personal experience with Marlboro's program I do have experience with Colts Neck's. I had a 3-year old who wasn't speaking very much. After a speech pathology assessment that suggested private speech therapy for him, we did some research ad found out this Colts Neck has a "child's study group" that would allow my 3-year old to attend Pre-K with other children who hvw special needs. The program includes regular Pre-K education PLUS speech therapy, physical therapy for children with mobility handicaps, and other special needs program. Within 2 months my son was talking as if he never had a delay. He's been in that program for 2 years and will begin kindrrgarten next year ahead of the skill level expected of a normal 5 year old.
I realize this doesn't 100% answer your question. However, while I do some research into Marlboro's program for you, hvw you considered Colts Neck?
