Lovely Ranch Near Lake Godfrey & Manasquan River
363 Boland Avenue, Brick, NJ Monmouth MLS# 21337614
Ranch home on corner lot near Godfrey Lake & the Manasquan river. Kitchen has lots of cabinets & peninsula counter. Breakfast area with sliding doors to screened in porch. Full partially finished basement with family room, office, workbench and lots of storage. Spacious yard with shed.
For exercise, we also bike along a town walking trail just across Maple Ave. It’s paved with crushed gravel, and is a couple miles long through a stretch of woods. We frequently ride our bikes along that trail which ends at a ball field and play area.
For a home cooking, we’ve gone to the Cozy Kitchen on Herbertsville Road several times. Our favorite place is the Allenwood General Store on Allenwood Ave in Wall. It’s only about 8-10 minutes away, but filled with antiques so Dad and the kids can have special one-on-one time together with a very low price tag.
For evening walks, we like to go to the beach in Bayhead. In the evening, there are rarely people there and we can bring our dog and throw a football or fly a kite. We also like going to the Brick Reservoir which is 5 minutes up the road.
We’re only a few minutes from Brick Hospital and in the general area we’ve had our dentist, doctors, even our vet.
We love the screened in porch. It faces the lake and we have spent countless nights out there having dinner, entertaining family and friends, and just grabbing a few moments to unwind. Not only did it draw us to the property, but it’s such a part of our life that we’ll miss it.
We also love the full sized attic. We put flooring and lighting in most of the attic so not only can it be used for storage, you can walk around up there and actually see what you’ve got.
We use the basement as living space. It’s our family room, playroom, office, library, and work area. Having this rugged space allows all six of us to live here pretty comfortably.
We also love our shed. It’s only a couple years old and is in fantastic shape. It allows us to put away all the yard/outdoor/recreation stuff and keep the place reasonably organized. We actually have two sheds on the property so we are able to keep the gas/chemicals away from the kid’s bikes and toys.
