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 have another question. the good schools districts are found according to cities or counties? for example i see some good schools in bergen county but i don't like some of the cities in the county! how do i decide?
sorry for that......the address is 573 craig road,manalapan. i have 3 kids, 2 in elementary school and 1 in middle school. finding good schools is our top priority. i also want to find safe and friendly neighborhood with bus or train stop nearby as my husband will have to go to manhattan at least once a week. also there should a good doctors, shopping area etc nearby and parks and activities center for kids. we are moving from clemmons north carolina which is a very safe and wholesome place to live. i hope we can find something good. thanks for replying so soon.
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 : )
