Fifteen minutes from Routes 33, 9, interstate 195, and the Garden State Parkway, this freehold estate community is a boon for commuters

By Laura D.C. Kolnoski

Located on a former sod farm adjacent to woods in the heart of central Monmouth County, Monmouth Chase by Toll Brothers has now sold 29 of its 52 luxury homes since the scenic upscale development opened in October of 2012. Construction is nearing completion, and Toll Brothers expects to sell out in a quick 12-15 months.

The serene rural setting and proximity to specialty, mall, and outlet shopping, dining options, and New Jersey beaches, combined with exceptional homes and amenities, are contributing to the Howell Township development’s popularity. Nine different energy-efficient home designs feature Whirlpool appliances, water-conserving Kohler fixtures, hardwood flooring, two-story entrance foyers, granite countertops, nine-foot ceilings and extensive oversized millwork. All homes have four bedrooms, open-floor plans, and the luxury details Toll Brothers is famed for.

The feel is private and secluded, yet close to major highways. It is the only estate home community in central Monmouth County with one-acre home sites within 15 minutes of Routes 33 and 9, I-195, and the Garden State Parkway, and is 65 minutes from New York City.

Monmouth Chase buyers can personalize homes with hundreds of options to fit needs, including conservatory additions, expanded kitchens, guest suites, and finished basements, said Christopher Gaffney, Toll Brothers group president.

“Many buyers visit our communities just to see the decorating and ultimately fall in love with our homes and become Toll Brothers buyers,” Gaffney said. “We use a number of award-winning designers from all over the country to merchandise homes to the highest levels of luxury and cuttingedge trends.” Gaffney added that the “Stansbury” design is a new addition to the community and becoming popular among buyers. In addition to an open-floor plan that’s great for entertaining, it offers a large playroom/homework area. (The homes are within the Freehold Regional High School District, students will attend local elementary schools and Colts Neck High School, one of six in the district.)

Priced from $678,995 to $783,995, the residences have two and one-half to four and one-half baths. All but one style have three-car garages. Sizes range from 3,134 to 4,745 square-feet.
