Although living in the Big Apple can be thrilling, you may feel like moving to the suburbs at some point… The quiet suburban life in Westfield, New Jersey, combines the best of both worlds.

In close proximity to New York (less than an hour ride with the train), Westfield seemed to the perfect place for Chintan Parekh and his family. Discover their story below:

Why a suburban lifestyle?

“We wanted a bigger house,” says Chintan. “We wished everyone to have their own bedroom and we also wanted to have more bathrooms. Plus, it was always our dream to have a pool in our backyard,” he smiles.

Why did you move to Westfield, NJ?

“We looked at many suburbs,” says Chintan. “The first towns we looked at were Summit and Scotch Plains. We decided to move to Westfield because it has one of the best school systems and we considered that an important aspect,” he continues.

Tip: Here is a list of the top towns in New Jersey.

Living the suburban lifestyle in the beautiful 101 N Cottage Pl

When it comes to sharing a home with other family members, space is a necessity. Chintan fell in love with the beautiful home we built at 101 N Cottage Pl in Westfield and it was only a matter of time until he and his loved ones moved in.

“Compared to the New York apartment, our new home offers a lot of space, which was an important box to tick on our checklist,” highlights Chintan.


Chintan and his family were not attracted only by the generous space in their home in Westfield, NJ, but also by the attention to details we put in the construction of this beautiful home. “Even though we lived in an expensive apartment in New York, the attention to details we found here exceeded our expectations. We love every detail of our new home!”

“The Gialluisi Homes team has been great in following up”

One of the challenges of living a suburban lifestyle and owning a home is maintenance. As a homeowner, you are in charge.

As Chintan puts it, “moving in a new home was a huge change, especially since we were used to having a supervisor who would take care of any issue that would come up.”


“The good part is that we don’t have to worry about anything, as the Gialluisi Homes team is extremely responsive every time we need help with maintenance,” states Chintan with a smile on his face.
