I'm a local so maybe I can answer some of your questions. This website will help with your general questions about the town:,_NJ and this is their town website:

The school district has a good reputation. It's a rural area that has become more suburban (built up with new housing, stores, etc.) in the past 30 years. There is no downtown area. Freehold, which is the next town over, has a nice downtown, and a huge shopping mall with a movie theater. Manalapan has a county library with free music events. New York is about 55 miles away (an hour drive with no traffic; with traffic, could be up to 1 and a half during rush hour), and the beach is about a 20-30 minute drive. There is bus service to New York City along Rt. 9 in Manalapan, but trains are about 10 miles away in Matawan. I would say it's a good area for kids, pretty safe, but kind of boring for teens and adults. I'm not sure what you are looking for, or how much you already know about NJ or the area. FYI New Jersey has high property taxes. For example, a house in the price range of the house you mentioned might be $10,000 a year in property taxes. Good luck in your search.

I'm a Manalapan real estate agent and can assist you with questions you may have about town amenities and schools if you need help. There is no mention in your question about the particular house that you like. I can tell you that Manalpan schools are part of the Freehold Regional School District which includes : Marlboro, Manalapan, Freehold Twp, Freehold Boro & Colts Neck. Most of the buyers I have assisted buying homes here are very pleased with the schools and that is usually their primary reason for moving here.

I am originally from Bergen county that area has some places with great schools but the taxes may be a little higher in some of the areas with those great schools.

I know the house you are talking about, I was just in it last week for an open house. The builder has a very modern style with plenty of space. There is a tree that blocks the view coming out of the driveway but other than that is a nice house.

The Manalapan Englishtown Middle school is a great school and depending on what your child's future interest there are a few regional high schools to choose from.

If you are looking for a great family community with good schools and an easy commute to NYC, then Manalapan area is perfect. I have 2 kids in school here and both are very happy. I often go to the city and its an easy commute by bus, train or car.

Good afternoon! There is no address listed, please supply the address of the house you are interested in and I will gladly get back to you in regards. I own property in Englishtown which shares schools with Manalapan. It s the Manalapan-Englishtown school system from K-8, then the Freehold Regional School system for the high school, My sister currently resides in Manalapan as well.Ellen Barton : )
