You need to investigate Watchung and Warren in Somerset County. Exit 40 on Rte 78, the towns have a lot of contemporaries, many of ridges with views of Manhattan. AND low taxes!! Mountainside is another good bet.I'd be happy to give you a free area tour, I cover a large area, have been a realtor for 30 years.

There are many towns withing 20 miles of the hudson river. The issue is not finding a modern home. How many bedrooms? taxes? lot size? swimming pool? There are also short sales which you may or may not want to be involved in. I have a few modern listings that I think you would enjoy seeing. Maybe I could be of assistance.

Have you considered Livingston (17 miles to the city)?

Are you planning on commuting daily?
What's your preference - bus? train? drive to Harrison and take the Pathe train?

Livingston offers a number of contemporary styled homes in your range.......some of the "train" towns have an older, charming look, but not as contemporary a feel, if that's what you're going for.

N. Caldwell also offers some newer construction in your range, with a similar distance to manhattan .
Please let me know if I can be of help!

Best wishes........

Hi Paady,

Does it have to be a maximum of 20 miles? Westfield is a bit further but a great town and I'd hate for you to pass it up for a few miles if you have any flexibility. If you are looking for an easy commute to the city, a great downtown and a top rated schools, Westfield is a great pick. I just listed a home 1 1/2 blocks to the train and to downtown Westfield. Here's the link - http://emailrpt.gsmls.com/public/show_public_report_rpt.do?r… - - but as I'm sure you are well aware, there are so many more to choose from and additional office exclusives. I can also offer you a buyer's rebate which will give you back a portion of my commission at closing! Hope to hear from you!

Hello Paady, I'm glad you asked this question. I can send you 6 great contemporary homes which are located in Bergen County & Essex County. Some exciting features of these homes are - large private wooded lots, gated community, sweeping staircases with enormous panoramic views, multiple layered decks, private deck with hot tub right off the Master Bedroom and one of them even has an indoor pool! These are well within the parameters of your required distance from the Hudson River. We are with ERA Distinctive Properties and would be happy to get your information so that we might send you these listings for your review. Thank you, David Blacker - David.Blacker@ERA.com 973-303-1346 Cell

Westfield -- 07090 -- is a destination community, a wonderful suburb; however, it is more like 30 miles from the Hudson. Summit NJ is 24 miles from the Hudson. In terms of a stellar community in Central NJ, these are 2 of the best. Millburn is another wonderful town, about 26 miles.

Frankly, to be in a good community only 20 miles from the Hudson, you might need to look in Bergen County -- north Jersey.

If you would like to discuss, feel free to call me on 732-423-2792.
