I'm looking to find a house or duplex for rent in a 'woodsy / country' setting. I have found job posting in Ridley Park that's a prefect match for my skills.

I was born in Abington, and have lived oustside Chicago, and grew up in Woodstock, NY. I'm currently living in Austin, TX, and would like to get back to an area somewhat close to Ridley Park that is similar to Woodstock (safe, country setting, friendly people).
I am 38, single, have a 3 yr old black lab. I would like to have a house or duplex with a garage, as I am a car-guy.

I have read posts about West Chester & Media, and they sound like nice places. I'd love to read what anyone can suggest for places to live.

Wallingford would also be a good place to research.

I also thought of Aston and, depending on your travel limitations, maybe even Mantua and Swedesboro, NJ.

Why not live in Ridley Park. Unless it has changed drastically in the past 10 years, there is a small shopping area, good schools, a nice park with a lake, and plenty of places to live. It is on the train line into Philly and close to shopping. It is not far from the Taylor Arboretum, which is in Chester. It has been a long time since I have been there, but I used to hike with my lab there. Of course, I would never go alone, but that it is anywhere today. When I lived in RP, I rented the first floor of a Victorian home with my dog. It worked out great. Media is also a good option with shopping, dining, and Rose Tree Park for you and your dog.
