About Nan Richardson

We are a family of 7 brothers and sisters (plus assorted spouses or significant others, 14 offspring, lots of cousins, in-laws, and friends) who live variously in New York, Washington DC, and Los Angeles. We return like the swallows of Capistrano yearly to Spring Lake for our Memorial Day extravaganza, and for many weekends and early vacation weeks. It holds many happy memories for us all, and for our children now as well. We are lawyers, publishers, hotel decorators, science editors, art directors, video filmmakers turned property managers, architects. This is the place we come to be together with our extended family, who still live in this charming town: cousins, aunts and uncles.

Nan Richardson purchased this house in 1960

Why Nan Richardson chose Spring Lake

Our grandfather came from Ireland when his older brothers inherited the farms, to make his fortune in America. He bought a farm in Princeton and part of an old estate in Spring Lake and we summered there with grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles, a big extended family, in a compound created from the old carriage houses and stables and gardens of Grandpa's peonies and irises. When two lawyer friends (who lived with their 6 children a few houses down in this lovely brick house) had to move for work to Washington DC, my parents swapped homes with them. (But in the neighborhood it is still referred to as 'the Maloy house!') It was reportedly built by a Mason in 1910 and he built it well; the steps and proportions follow those magic numbers. It is a lovely, solid, happy home, and we have great memories of fireflies and flashlight tag, of the screen door slamming softly and Mother coming out on the porch and placing a tray of vanilla cream sodas on the wicker table, and the strawberry patch and the sweetness of the lilacs and Rose of Sharon blooming, and the beach all shimmering in that summer light .... Finally, after 50 years, we finished a massive renovation to bring all to a state-of-the art level. Since our children love it as much as we do, the house is now good for the next 50 years, so we hope their children will someday enjoy it too!

What makes this house unique

Peaceful, restful, deeply restorative are the associations we have with being in Spring Lake at this Brighton house. Evening strolls on the boardwalks, morning runs on the beaches, leisurely bike rides anytime, reading (and a little nap) on the porch sofa with its view of the sea, hanging out and catching up in the awning shade, fishing off the bridges in Spring Lake, trips to the 5 & 10 for penny candy, great BBQs in the backyard, The Scone Pony or Tom Bailey's freshly-baked doughnuts, and so much more!

Great house, excellent location

  • 5 of 5
My family was very pleased with our stay. House is exactly as pictured - different wallpaper themes with coordinating bed covers in each bedroom made upstairs feel like a cute B&B. All bedrooms have ample drawer + closet space. Mattresses are very comfortable (we're picky about that). Two full, modern + immaculately clean bathrooms on the second floor make this a very easy house for a group. Another full bath on the first floor and terrific outdoor shower - one of our favorite things about life at the beach. Kitchen is well laid out + equipped, with a large table that invites you to gather. 4 blocks from the beach (an easy, scenic stroll) and an even shorter walk into town. First floor is very well laid out, although we spent most of our time outside and didn't use the living or dining room. We had a few questions on arrival, and Nan responded immediately to our voice message. A perfect stay - we hope to be back next year! I definitely recommend this property.

Perfect house for a idyllic vacation.

  • 5 of 5
Growing up in Spring Lake I have great memories of the beach, boardwalk, the lake , town and all that this beautiful Jersey Shore town has to offer.
This house brought all those happy memories back: walking to the beach , biking over the lake’s wooden bridges, a stroll for ice cream at Petersons or Hoffmans, chocolates at Jean Louise, penny candy at the real old-fashioned 5 and Dime. Spring Lake is like time travel into a simpler, sweeter past.

We rented this house before it was renovated and loved it and wanted to come back again. The location is perfect-close to town and beach and the house is airy and light-filled. With the renovation it sparkles. Polished wood floors throughout; bright large windows in every room, gleaming new bathrooms, and handsome spacious living areas. Very comfortable beds with crisp linens. Beautiful kitchen all marble and stainless, plus backyard propane grill (the grill was great) and deck. Ample dishware. Really tastefully appointed.

We loved the porch on the side with its sofas, and the deck perfect for a sunny breakfast or evening meal, and the big backyard with two teak chaise longues from which we could laze away summer days reading and watching the neighborhood.

I have many memories of this house from childhood and the owners have done a wonderful job on the renovations and keeping the house in perfect condition. It made our time in Spring Lake a truly memorable experience. This wasn’t a vacation rental, it really was like visiting home. We didn't want to leave, and we will definitely come again.

Old School in Spring Lake

  • 5 of 5
I spent eight nights at this lovely property. I wish it could have been a month... I met family there and we all enjoyed the cozy, relaxed accommodations.During my time there I felt as if life was uncomplicated and I was able to reconnect with my childhood growing up at the Jersey shore. (Probably a combination of the house and the town of Spring Lake itself!) The side porch took us all back to another era. We left the front door open and never locked the doors (with the exception of bedtime) and we felt completely safe. The bedrooms were comfortable and quiet and private. (And they had really cool wallpaper--kind of a combo of modernish Victorian meets Edward Gorey!) The kitchen was updated and perfectly appointed. We really enjoyed sitting around the long table, eating and talking for hours. The location was convenient to the beach and 'around the corner' from town. My son sent me a text last night and said he pulled out a sweatshirt he had taken with him on the trip and said 'it smelled like the house'! He loved that... It reminded him that we made many great memories there...

Spacious...inviting...perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This house is so welcoming, you feel at home on the first day. There is plenty of room to move around. Each room has its own character, from the sunlit office, complete with a comfortable couch for an afternoon snooze, to the finished basement, perfect for movie nights with the huge flat screen tv. The bedrooms are colorful and comfortable with the unique charm of antique furniture that blends yesterday with today. The “L’ shaped kitchen is a cook and baker’s dream. There is ample marble counter space to prepare your favorite meals in the cooking area set away from the seating. Want to be more formal? The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen. Both eating areas lead to an outside porch. Off the dining room, you are secluded by the beautiful bushes and striped awnings. Thirsting for more sun? Step onto the open back porch in the large private backyard. It is great for barbeques, family activities and games. This house has everything you could possible need to make your stay perfect. Plus, it is in a great location. Spring Lake offers a little something for everyone. You are within walking distance to the lake, beach, shopping & dining, and the train station. You can play tennis at the lake while the kids fish or enjoy the playground just a few feet away. You can take a scenic bike ride, walk or jog around a picturesque and historic town. The beaches are beautiful and spacious. Downtown Spring Lake has shopping and dining or a market with prepared foods for dining in.
You don’t feel the hustle & bustle of other crowded seaside towns. It is large enough to get lost, but quaint enough to feel at home. You’ll never want to leave.
Our recent stay was during the winter. We especially enjoyed the hearth fireplace and large property for family friendly snowball fights. We regret that we didn’t get to use the new outdoor shower. I suppose we’ll have to book our next stay during the warmer months.

Sandy Relief at its Best!

  • 5 of 5
This delightful home is all that it claims and more!!! It was the perfect solution to unfortunate circumstances caused by Superstorm Sandy. There was true comfort in this newly renovated home from lots of living space for a big family, to little nooks, to go lose yourself, if down time is what you needed. Being a native Spring Lake, I got to appreciate again all the things that make this town truly lovely. I love to walk on the boardwalk and despite the boardwalk being currently under repair, a walk around the lake and through town was a great alternative. The only downside to that was an impromptu stop at The Jean Louise Chocolate Shop! I would highly recommend this lovely home, with all its new ammenties, a fabulous backyard, close proxmity to the beach and town, as the place to come and visit. You will not be disappointed!

September at the shore

  • 5 of 5
We like the shore best in September. The boardwalk and beach are all ours. First time we found this place and it is a keeper. Very comfortable for a couple, two couples to share, a family or a family reunion. There is plenty of space (four bedrooms), the house is nicely outfitted, and the fireplace is wonderful on a crisp September Saturday evening. We really loved our long walks through town, the houses and architecture are amazing, not to mention the 2+ mile boardwalk. We definitely recommend a stay here (the owner was so gracious and helpful but not intrusive!). You will feel relaxed, healthy and healed.

One of the prettiest towns on the Jersey Shore, retaining its Victorian charm with wonderful pristine beaches, a boardwalk with gazebos, two sweet lakes with little bridges, and adorable downtown with a honest-to-goodness 5 and Dime, attractive shops, two chocolate stores and other childhood delights. Great dining options nearby. Everyone gets around on bicycles. A gentle, relaxing place, out of time. Perfect.
