My husband just accepted a promotion that will have him managing the companies Horsham and Bethlehem office. We are coming from Jersey city and are not looking for a suburb with a bunch of houses and not much else. This is why we were thinking Doylestown would be great.... A downtown area, great school and nice homes (new construction even). He will be at both locations pretty evenly.... Horsham is really close to Doylestown but will travel to Bethlehem be a nightmare for him? He ends to be in around 7:15/7:30am and will stay til 6ish.

Are there other towns more in the middle of the two offices that have what Doylestown has?

The commute to Bethlehem will be long, but not bad traffic wise. The biggest concern will be in the winter with bad roads and deer to look out for. There's a long stretch of road that is hilly and wooded. Another town to look at is Sellersville. It has a small downtown and a great theater. Home Sellersville Theater It's a better location.

Yes, more centrally located to both areas but Sellersville is not at the level of Doylestown. Sellersville is much more country-ish.

Absolutely, which is why I suggested Doylestown to the OP on the Lehigh Valley forum. I know when we were looking for a house, we looked at a few different areas.

I'm guessing that commute to Horsham will be around 30 minutes. Obviously Bethlehem will be at least twice as long. Doylestown seems about as good as you are going to get location wise, other than possibly one of the towns along Rt 309 (ie. Souderton, Perkasie).

Thanks toobusytoday.... We will be checking out a few areas and will likely add sellersville to the list. I posted in a separate thread but has anyone had experience with nv homes positive or negative?

Is Doylestown rural or do they have a lot of stores nearby?

Doylestown has plenty of stores. The mall is not esp. close, which may explain why Doylestown has kept a vibrant downtown. Plenty of little stores and great places to eat. New Hope is nearby. It isn't too bad to get to the Montgomeryville mall. Every chain place imaginable is out that way.

Doylestown has great charm.

You also may want to look into Warrington which is just down the street from Doylestown. It's a little closer to the turnpike for his commute.
