Be careful about sections of Leonardo (and other areas as well) requiring flood insurance (which your realtor may not tell you). I passed up a lot of houses for that reason. And you certainly can find houses in Lincroft for that price.

Oak Hill is great, but I think in a Higher price range.

Default Truex Place

I was looking at a home on Truex Place, what section of town is that? Mostly older homes I believe near 35.

I have recently relocated to the Middletown area (Oak Hill area) and love it. There seem to people from many different income levels and I have not personally experienced any snobbery. People here seem pretty down to earth. The families I've met through the school system have really been a nice crowd.

I do not know much about the surrounding areas, but the River Plaza area also seems to fit your criteria and I have met several people who are very happy with the schools and neighbors.

There's a new development *ON* Rt 35 (north bound) called "The Village At Chappel Hills". It's very close to Oak Hill, Navesink River and Red Bank. It's next to Whole Foods and is a great location overall.

You can easily get a townhome there for the price you mentioned. Last I checked, they only had a few left. Good luck with your search.

EDIT: Also, I saw new townhomes being constructed on Harmony Road (behind TD bank). Not sure what's the deal with those, but you should check 'em out as well.

Is this a nice section of Middletown, or should I look elsewhere? Homes seem to be kept nice, we are retired and want a quiet neighborhood.

Good Luck!

A friend of mine lives in the New Monmouth area. Has a nice 3BR ranch with a good-size yard on a cul-de-sac and her neighborhood seems very family-oriented, friendly and safe. It's a good middle-class area--not snobby, not trashy.
