Greenbriar II

Brick Township, New Jersey  08724

 Comfortable, Friendly Age-Restricted Community Close to the Jersey Shore is Solid, Quiet and Well Established

Brick Township is a suburban working class town (population 78,000) in New Jersey and has been recognized as one of the safest cities not only in New Jersey but in the United States, thanks to its neighborly but attentive and professional police department.   It is also home to Greenbriar II, an established, 55+ community with 600 single family homes and a friendly reputation.   Built in the late 1970s and early 1980s, this development has a solid, comfortable feel to it and is well maintained with tidy streets and manicured lawns.  Homes are not splashy but are kind of cute and compact with five to seven rooms and just one level.



This quiet neighborhood has seven home models, and all homes are re-sales.  Residences have siding and brick exteriors, mature landscaping (average size lawns), and all come with either a one- or two-car garage.   All of the homes have two bedrooms, one and a half or two baths and approximately 1,500 square feet.   Since this is an older active adult community and comprised of previously owned homes, some properties have more modern interiors than others, which affects prices.  Most of the homes for sale are in the high $100,000s to mid-$200,000s, although there are a few residences for sale in the high-$200,000s.   Back yards are private and many back onto wooded areas.    Basements, central A/C, security systems, central vacuum systems, kitchen upgrades, skylights, vaulted ceilings and more can be found in various residences.    Some rentals are also available for around $1,350 to $1,650 per month. 


The monthly HOA fee is $125 and includes lawn cutting, snow plowing of roads, maintenance of common grounds, trash removal, exterior home maintenance, security patrol and complimentary transportation to nearby shopping centers.  

Greenbriar does not have all the bells and whistles of newer active adult developments, but it has a number of clubs and activities for residents.  There is a clubhouse and a swimming pool, and the Jersey Shore is ten minutes away.   One drawback to keep in mind with this community is that while home prices are fairly reasonable and the HOA fees are low, annual property taxes are high (although average for this area), roughly 2% of a home's fair market value.  Homes for sale can be viewed at www.firstchoicenj.com (search for Adult Community in Ocean County and click on properties from $184,900 and up).  

Brick is in east central New Jersey and has lots of shopping and dining options.    Summer temperatures are in the 80s and 90s with relative average humidity of 70%.  The area receives 4 to 5 inches of precipitation a month, including 6 to 7 inches of snow per month from December through March.  Winter temperatures are in the 20s and 30s.  And because it is Jersey, the sun shines just 200 days of the year.
