Interlaken is an idyllic town. It is so close to the beach, you can walk to it! Also, it is far enough away that Sandy's ocean wave action did not harm a home. This is a TREE CITY and has been for 25 years, which is obvious as one walks in the shade of the mature trees found lining the streets. Drive down Fernmere from Wickepecko to see this for yourself or stroll the wide sidewalks or streets under a canopy of mature trees shading the way. The homes shout "Pride of Ownership" as each garden or home shows a different era or style, all dressed in the seasons' best natural beauty. Interlaken has greener grass - this to me is undeniable. For the literal, the lawns are green April through July and a little brownish August to March and beautiful to me year round.
Comprised mostly of single family homes, with the majority owner occupied year round, diverse architectural styles makes this desirable town a favorite for the knowledgeable buyer. The last time I checked, Interlaken had one of the lowest tax rates in Monmouth County, because Interlaken does not have to support a school district. Interlaken sends its students to local school districts and shares its police department with the town of Deal. Interlaken is bordered by Deal Lake and near Historic Ocean Grove and Asbury Park.
