Finding the ideal place to live isn’t as simple as it sounds. One town may offer a large inventory of available houses but public transportation may be lacking. Concerns about the quality of the school district might make another area less attractive. The best locations satisfy most of the items on your list and offer a few intangible qualities that make you think, “This is the place for me!” If you’re looking for a home in Central New Jersey, you just may feel that way about Hillsborough Township. These five important benefits are among the many advantages of living in Hillsborough.
Sometimes the most beautiful houses are in the worst locations. That’s not the case in Hillsborough. You’ll find spacious, attractive houses located just a short drive from major highways and public transportation. It’s an easy drive to the office, whether you work in Hillsborough, Bridgewater, Montgomery Township, Raritan, Princeton or other local areas. You’ll also be in commuting distance of New York City, Trenton and Philadelphia whether you take the train or drive.
Excellent Job Opportunities
Proximity to thousands of employers makes Hillsborough a particularly attractive location for home buyers. Central New Jersey is the place to live if you work in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, communications and technology industries. Area companies with headquarters or large offices close to Hillsborough include AT&T, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Celgene, Citigroup, Daiichi Sankyo, Johnson & Johnson, Linde America, MetLife Insurance, Novo Nordisk, Pfizer and Verizon.
Hospitals, schools, universities, law firms, marketing companies, non-profit organizations, real estate agencies, banks, stores, restaurants and other smaller businesses also employ many area residents.
Keeping an older home in good condition can be costly. Mechanical systems fail, roofs need to be replaced, and leaks can cause mold growth on basement walls. If you’re tired of spending your disposable income on home repairs, new construction offers a better option.
New homes are much easier to maintain than older homes and are designed to meet the needs of modern homeowners. They offer large kitchens, family rooms, multiple bathrooms, abundant closets and garage space for several cars.
You’ll find all of those things and more at Country Classics in Hillsborough. The four-bedroom, 2.5 bath executive homes range in size from more than 3,000 to almost 5,000 square feet and are smart home ready. They’re designed with your comfort in mind and offer family and living areas big enough to host all of your guests for holiday dinners, plus luxurious master bedroom suites with sitting areas.
Good school districts not only provide an excellent education for area children but are also a crucial factor in home value and resale prices. Hillsborough’s school district is consistently recognized in local and national rankings. In fact, the district received an A+ rating from Niche.com and was ranked 15 out of 243 New Jersey’s districts.
The district’s 1:1 initiative encourages and facilitates computer literacy by providing every child in grades 5 through 12 with Chromebooks that can be taken home. Students are offered a well-rounded education, thanks to the strong curriculum and variety of extra-curricular activities that include sports, clubs and academic teams.
