Realistically, from Readington, Clinton, Pittstown areas, you are looking at a 45 minute to 1 hour commute on a good day. As you get closer east, of course the amount of time will decrease. I have lived in both Somerset and Hunterdon Counties since 1986 and would never live anywhere else. This part of NJ is the BEST kept secret out there!
We have shopping outlets, malls, public transportation etc. I don't quite know what your wife's co-workers definition of "hicks" is but it does not refer to people living in these areas. The school systems in these areas are among the tops in the state.
Please feel free to contact me by phone or text (908-334-8010) so we can discuss the subject further. I would hate for you to miss out on a wonderful opportunity for your family because of the comments of a select few.

Hi Ellen, hope to answer your inquery.............I am guessing that the 40 minutes you mentioned, from Basking Ridge/Bernardsville may be your place of business?..........there are wonderful communites that you would love well within 40 minutes and they all have their "speical" town functions...........besides the 2 mentioned, you can investigate Bedminster, Readington and much more........I would suggest keeping you close to the 287/78 corridor which the above towns mentioned are if I am correct in your job's position.............I work in all areas as well as reside in Bedminster........depending on what you are looking for in a townhouse would depend on which areas may interest you.......The Hills in Bedminster for example have great ammenities such as pool, tennis, full gym, biking and jogging paths as well as a golf course...........please let me know if I can be of further assisstance
