As new residents are discovering, this Somerset County township offers those working remotely natural beauty and ‘more bang for the buck.’

Last fall, when Saumil and Krupa Patel and their two daughters left East Brunswick, N.J., for Warren, about 20 miles northwest, they found themselves trading up in terms of housing, lifestyle and even the family car.

In need of more room to accommodate working from home, they went from a 1,700-square-foot house in a tightly packed neighborhood to a 4,500-square-foot colonial on an acre, which they bought in November for $1.15 million. From their new home, which sits on a mountaintop, they watch the sunrise over Washington Valley, Mr. Patel said, and they hike on nearby trails.
