Our family is considering relocating to CT in order for my husband to commute to Midtown Manhattan. He would like a commute time of 45 minutes or less. We need a town with a good school system and amenities such as a pool and tennis courts. We would consider a 2800sq ft home in the 800K price range. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Finding a 2800 s.f. home in a good town within 45 mintues of Manhattan for $800k will be a challenge. You are moving to one of th emost expensive areas of the country. Your travel time limit and need for good schools limits you to Greenwich and maybe Darien. In Greenwich, $800k buys you a modest house (less than 1600 s.f.) on a small lot. In Darien, you will get a little more house on a slightly larger lot. Check out listings on Realtor.com to see what is available in your price range. Good luck and let us know if you have any other questions. Jay
