    West Freehold, NJ
    Growing up in West Freehold, I used to ride my bike all over the neighborhood to go see friends - or just to ride, since the streets are huge, safe, and quiet. One of the coolest parts of those rides would be turning off Applegate on to Tilton and suddenly feeling like I was on the West Coast! In a sea of colonials, Contempra was and still is an oasis of classic California contemporary architecture in beautiful Freehold, NJ. I was always envious of my friends who lived there (some have even moved back!) and I really love working in the neighborhood. With open floor plans and entertaining spaces, cathedral ceilings, and unique features like double sided fireplaces and conversation pits these homes are as functional as they are unique. Marketed as "Contempra at Monmouth Heights", the homes were modern alternatives to the Monmouth Heights colonials previously built in the same neighborhood (future installment). The approximately 225 homes were constructed between 1971 & 1974 and are located north and south of Elton Adlephia Rd. (between Townsend/Kings Mountain and Ticonderoga Blvd.). Most are on huge lots of 5/8 acre or more and some back to permanently preserved space.

    The models at Contempra are:

    - Montana Ranch: Approximately 1925 sq ft with 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths.

    - Colorado: Approximately 2660 sq ft, this is the largest model. The Colorado was offered with four upstairs bedrooms, with an optional fifth over the garage (most have that fifth bedroom).

    - Arizona I: Approximately 1800 sq ft with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths.

    - Arizona II: Approximately 2200 sq ft, this home is the same as the Arizona but with a second floor that has two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom for a total of 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths.

    - Nevada: Approximately 2330 sq ft, this is a 5 bedroom 3 full bath bi-level home with great in-law/mother-daughter potential.

    At the time of this writing (January 2014), homes were selling in the mid to high 300's for the smaller models, and the high 300's well into the 400's for the larger models. The highest current closing was an almost fully updated Arizona II for $465K in July 2013.

    Residents of Contempra pay an annual $150 fee for use and maintenance of the members only Monmouth Heights Swim Club, located on Tilton Dr. Children attend either West Freehold or Laura Donovan for K-5, Clifton T. Barkalow for 6-8 and Freehold Township H.S. 9-12. As with the other great communities in West Freehold (more installments to come!), Contempra residents enjoy convenience to local park and rec facilities, shopping, medical facilities, and dining & entertainment.
