my wife and I are falling in love with the washington town center in Robbinsville. has anyone been there? it' seems like a really nice and relatively new community. we are considering a new construction townhome there but also have looked at a few re-sales.

Does anyone have any info about the area or the town center specifically? We are out of our normal geographic area. We originally only looked middlesex county (we live temporarily in new brunswick now) and really wanted to stay in this area originally. Middlesex county is closer to work and our families as well. But after a friend told us about the town center in Robbinsville and we went there to visit, we have been leaning toward buying there. The prices are much better than what we've seen in middlesex county (piscataway, edison, north brunswick, etc) plus the town center itself is so much nicer of a complex that the ones we've seen in middlesex. We definitely get more bang for the buck in Robbinsville. I just need to figure out if I can deal with the commute (I work in Somerset) and just being further away from anything. We also need to figure out if the new construction is the route to go or if we should go with a re-sale.

Anyone have any pointers? thank you in advance!

I lived in Robbinsville for the past four years (moved away in July) and I was very happy there. Crime is almost non-existent. The schools are good. You are close to several major roads/highways (Turnpike/I-95, I-195, I-205, Rt. 130, Rt. 33). Shopping is nearby no matter which direction you go in; every possible store and restaurant is convenient to get to. It's well-kept, clean, there's no real bad area. I can't think of anything negative to say about Robbinsville.

mikieguns-I don't think you would be disappointed living in (buying in) the relatively new Town Center in Robbinsville. Robbinsville (formerly one of the 6? Washington townships in NJ) was once an agricultural area. It has become a very desired location over the past several years.
Don't know if you are concerned about the schools, but until a couple of years ago, Robbinsville had some great elementary schools and then paid to send their kids to Lawrence HS.
With the new growth, they have recently built their own HS (within the past 3 years). This new HS is promising to be a major contender in the area.
You will be within a couple of miles of everthing you ever wanted, shopping, eating etc.
Can't imagine what your commute will be, 206? could be a bit of a nightmare.
What I can tell you is that you will be very happy to arrive home at the end of the day.
This is a Sharbell development and their homes seem to be well constructed and well appointed. The homes are so new that I would think a re-sale would not be a bad deal in the current market.
Good luck with your search!
