Our home is in New Jersey, 45 minutes west of New York City. This colonial style home is in a quiet upscale neighborhood on a beautiful private wooded lot with a stream. It is perfect for nature walks. We also have a pool, great for swimming laps or just splashing around. Beautiful flower gardens surround the pool.
The house has 3 levels with 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and 2 half baths. One bedroom on the first floor has a queen bed with en suite bath. The other four bedrooms are on the 2nd floor, along with 2 full baths. One bedroom has a king sized bed, one has a twin "race car" bed, the third is an office and the fourth has a crib.
The lower level is finished with plenty of toys for young children. We have a 4 and a half year old boy and a 2 year old girl.
The house has a kitchen complete with all the necessary conveniences. There is a family room with fireplace, a sunroom, a living room with a fireplace and a dining room. We also have a 2 car garage and would be willing to allow use of our cars.
Our neighborhood is in New Jersey in a suburb of New York City. The street has a cul de sac on either end making it the perfect place for walks and bike rides. the area is mountainous and wooded. All the homes are on 2 acre lots. A stream runs through our backyard and is a great place for hikes.
You cannot walk to stores. The center of town is a 6 minute drive. Driving to New York City (NYC) takes about 45 mintues depending upon traffic. The train station is 10 minutes away. The train trip to New York takes about an hour and 15 minutes.
The closest beaches in New Jersey are about an hour away by car.
We are a family of four. I am a stay-at-home mother of two young children, 4 and 2 years of age. My husband trades commodity options and commutes to NYC daily.
We have no pets. We speak English and very limited Spanish.
We are interested in living in rural England for 1-3 months. We are considering a time frame between April 2007 - July 2007 or April 2008- July 2008.
We need at least 2 bedrooms.
