Call It Manhawkin, NJ or Stafford Township, NJ...It's Great Jersey Shore Living!

Southern Ocean County, New Jersey can be a bit confusing. Take, for example, Stafford Township. While Stafford Township is the name of the actual municipality, our post office is Manahawkin, NJ 08050.

The population stands at nearly 25,000 and is nearly fully developed according to the Stafford Township Master Plan. The final build out is expected to be completed by 2014, bringing the total population to approximately 28,000.

Within the boundaries of Stafford Township there are several communities. Communities within Stafford include Manahawkin, Cedar Run, Mayetta and most of Warren Grove. Moving counterclockwise from the western boundary, housing areas include Warren Grove, Ocean Breeze, Fawn Lakes and Atlantic Hills (adult communities), Ocean Acres (by far the largest development), Deer Lake Park, Manahawkin center (Downtown), Mallard Island (a.k.a. “Mud City”), Beach Haven West (bordering Barnegat Bay), Village Harbour, Colony Lakes, Mayetta, Cedar Run (including Cedar Run Apartments for seniors) and Perry’s Lake (adult community bordering shopping centers).

Ocean Acres is an area of nearly 6 miles and includes two municipalities, parts of Stafford and Barnegat Townships west of the Garden State Parkway, between Route 72 and Barnegat’s West Bay Avenue. Manahawkin’s Ocean Acres development is nearly complete, while Barnegat’s section is just getting started due to water supply issues and concerns of the New Jersey Pinelands Commission about the rare and endangered northern pine snake.

Development of Ocean Acres in Manahawkin began in the 1960’s. It includes numerous parks, schools, Holiday Lake and a golf course at the Ocean Acres Country Club.

Homes for sale in Manahawkin range in price from the $170’s for a “short sale” ranch to nearly a million for a custom lakefront on an oversize lot. Usual lot sizes are about 75 x 125. There are also building lots available priced from about $100,000!

With those bright red trees, I'm wondering if there are any bright red doors on any of the houses. I grew up in a house with a bright red door. Didn't like it then, and I still don't like it -- LOL.

Laura- great Post!


Jim-  They say a red door means mortgage free- I remember when my grandmother painted her door red, when she made her last mortgage payment
