Car: Recommended

One of the prettiest towns on the Jersey Shore, retaining its Victorian charm with wonderful pristine beaches, a boardwalk with wooden gazebos, two sweet lakes with little bridges, and adorable downtown with a honest-to-goodness 5 and Dime, attractive shops, two chocolate stores and other childhood delights. Great dining options nearby. Everyone gets around on bicycles. A gentle, relaxing place, out of time. Perfect.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 1960

About: We are a family of 7 brothers and sisters (plus assorted spouses or significant others, 14 offspring, lots of cousins, in-laws, and friends) who live variously in New York, Washington DC, London, and Los Angeles. We return like the swallows of Capistrano to Spring Lake for our annual Memorial Day extravaganza, and for many weekends and early vacation weeks. It holds many happy memories for us, and for our children now as well. We are lawyers, publishers, hotel decorators, science editors, art directors, video filmmakers turned property managers, architects. This is the place we come to be together with our extended family who still live in this charming town: cousins, aunts and uncles.

Why Spring Lake, NJ, USA:
Our grandfather came from Ireland (when his older brother inherited the property), to make his fortune in America. He bought a farm in Princeton and part of an old estate in Spring Lake and we summered there with grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles, a big extended family, in a compound created from the old carriage houses and stables and gardens of Grandfather's peonies and irises. When two lawyer friends (who lived with their 6 children a few houses away) had to move for work, my parents swapped homes with them. (But in the neighborhood our house is still 'the Maloy house.') It was reportedly built by a Mason (who was a mason) in 1910 and he built it well; the steps and proportions follow those magic numbers. It is a lovely, solid, happy home, and we have great memories of fireflies and flashlight tag, of the screen door slamming softly and Mother coming out on the porch wth a tray of vanilla cream sodas we sipped on the the wicker couch, and the strawberry patch and the sweetness of the lilacs and Rose of Sharon blooming, and the beach all shimmering in that summer light .... Finally, after 50 years, we finished a massive renovation to bring all to a state-of-the art level. Since our children love it as much as we do, the house is now good for the next 50 years, so their children will someday enjoy it too!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peaceful, restful, deeply restorative are the associations we have with being in Spring Lake at this Brighton house. Evening strolls on the boardwalks, morning runs on the beaches, leisurely bike rides anytime, reading (and a little nap) on the porch sofa with its view of the sea, hanging out and catching up in the awning shade, fishing off the bridges in Spring Lake, or deep sea out of Shark River, great BBQs in the backyard, trips to the 5 & 10 for penny candy, to Jean Louise for chocolates, to Hoffman's or Peterson's (now The Sunday Times) for ice cream, The Scone Pony or Tom Bailey's for freshly-baked croissants or doughnuts, and so much more! It's like a Norman Rockwell painting of another time, and the small town feel is underlined in all the daily scenes of boys riding lazily home with their surfboards tucked under arm on their bicycles, or grandparents reading the Sunday paper on the benches by the lake as families of swans glide by. (It is the quintessential beach town: winter population 2700, swelling to 25,000 in summer). And a small piece of heaven on earth.
