At Gloria Nilson & Co., we are devoted to helping prospective home buyers find the perfect houses for their needs. Our team understands Manalapan and the rest of Monmouth County deeply and can steer your search for the right house toward the ideal home for you.
Manalapan, like many other communities in Monmouth County, has a history longer than the United States itself. The name “Manalapan” translates from a Lenape word that could be translated as “land of good bread” or “good land to settle upon.” In 1778, the Battle of Monmouth was fought on land that now comprises part of Manalapan Township and part of Freehold Township. Today, this land is preserved as Monmouth Battlefield State Park. The park is home to equestrian trails and a restored Revolutionary War era farmhouse as well as modern recreational amenities like tennis courts, a disc golf course, and a birth sanctuary. Today, Manalapan is a thriving suburban community of approximately 40,000 residents. In 2015, it was rated as the second-hottest East Coast town by Money magazine.
Manalapan is an affluent community with a median household income of $103,970. A key part of Manalapan’s attractiveness to young professionals, families, and retired individuals is its location. Nestled in central Monmouth County, Manalapan is a mere 15 miles from the beach and 45 miles from New York City, making it a dream for commuters who seek a more spacious setting than they can find in northern parts of the state. Manalapan Township is an ideal home for golfers. Battleground Country Club, Knob Hill Golf Course, and Pine Brook Golf Course are all located in Manalapan, and residents do not have to travel far to access the many other golf courses Monmouth County has to offer. For the boat and beach enthusiasts, Manalapan Township provides easy access to the coastline without the challenges that come with living in a “beach town” like heavy summer traffic and a transient population. When you are a member of the Manalapan community, you know your neighbors and they know you.
Although Manalapan is beyond the hustle and bustle of New York’s inner suburbs, it is not without access to nightlife. Asbury Park’s restaurants, bars, boardwalk, and entertainment are only a 30 minute drive from Manalapan.
