HI Tom,

If you could identify what neighborhood specifically you are looking at, I could help you get an answer to that question. Generally in 08540, flooding is not an issue unless the home is next to a stream. Even if it is close to Carnegie Lake it's usually not a problem because the homes are set up high. The Boro is generally not in a flood zone. Please get back to me with specifics. ... more

Hi Ed-
Are you thinking of moving to the area? Stoney Brook Elementary School is located within a community on the outskirts of Pennington Borough and is convenient to I-95. You asked if the school rating is superior, but superior to what? Locally, Stoney Brook and the other elementary schools within the Hopewell Valley Regional School District have high ratings. You can visit our website: to look up local school information, community information and you can compare/contrast different areas. I have included a link directly to this section of our site in the Web References section below. When it comes to schools it is important that when you are in the area, take the time to visit the school itself. I have run into instances where schools rate well but may not meet the needs of the individual student/family and vice versa. These websites are great to start your search but the follow up when in the area is also equally as important. Please reach out if you have any additional questions or needs.

The "smoke cert" is just real estate jargon , it doesn't mean there was a fire. In most towns the smoke cert. is simply going to the township and scheduling for the inspector to make sure the home has the proper smoke detectors,carbon minoxide detector and fire extinguisher. A local FULLTIME agent can research the history of the home for you. I know a good agent in your area, if you would like to contact her, let me know. Good luck on the purchase. ... more

The best source of information regarding crime is the local police department--why not visit, ask all your questions and hear all there is to hear firsthand--if you aren't familiar with the area consider driving through neighborhoods more than once and at different times of day--then make a determination--where will your comfort level best be reached. ... more

Hi Jenn
This is a personal question, and only you can answer what is right for you................My town has several areas that have higfh tension wires and towers. Homes near them are bought and sold all the time. Years ago the town brought in experts , and much was investigated, town meetings held, etc.. The general concensus was that there is no "danger" by living in the vicinity of the towers or wires.
Let me state that I am not an expert, and I am only repeating what was said by others.. I suggest you look into this yourself - using google, I am sure you can have your basic questions answered. Speak to your agent, and see what the success rate has been seliing homes in similar locations, and whether there is any information available for you to read on the subject.

That being said, I have found it more difficult to sell listings very close to the towers - it goes to the buyer's perception. Usually those homes are sold for less than similar homes in other a result, you might get a great deal on this home, so that is the good news. The sale price will (always) reflect the location, whether it's this home or another one.
The decision is up to you.

Best wishes.........

I found Lawrenceville to have a small-town vibe - being conveniently located down the street from downtown Princeton and the prep school. The properties in this area of 206 are mostly older homes, but many of them have nice size lots. I never lived there, but I graduated from Rider University and commuted through the back streets of Lawrenceville - the town had a lot of town-wide events for the kids especially. Again, this is my opinion having traveled through Lawrenceville for a few years.

Visiting websites like city-data, nationalrelocation or wikipedia may offer additional stats for the area.
