Depending which attribute is more important to you, you can be centrally located in Manchester or its suburban towns and be 30 minutes to the Ocean, 50 minutes to the lakes and 65 minutes to the Mountains. There are many cities and towns with very good schools. It will depend what price range you are looking in, what size house you want and how large of a lot to which area is better. Please feel free to contact me and I can send you some listings and pictures of some different ones to give you a better feel. I hope to hear from you soon.
