I am living in Chester county, and went to College at West Chester. It is an awesome area. If you want to offer the kids a great education, and still have some space between you and the neighbor, you may want to look at Avon Grove School district. That was the goal for me an the wife, but we fell in love with a house that was one township over in an great, but not as great, School District.
If you are up here soon enough, by fall or so, you can get in on the group brew lambic. PM me if your interested.
