Why not look at the surrounding towns? If you go to the top of your budget (~450) you should be able to find something in Fort Lee or Leonia, and might be able to find an older/smaller single family home in Tenafly or Cresskill, if you're willing to look at that. Ridgefield would be slightly less nice but potentially get you closer to the midpoint of your budget, as would Weehawken (which would make the commute lightening quick although AFAIK schools there are not nearly as good as the other towns mentioned).

Granted since you live in Englewood I'm probably saying nothing you don't already know .
