Marble Arch Homes can create a family's dream home

“One home buyer requested a second floor on the conservatory”

Think of a house with room to entertain in style, a gracious entry, a family room, a kitchen that makes meal prep a breeze, a home study and a master suite with closet space that can't be filled. via Asbury Park Press Online

I purchased a home in one of Marble ARch communities..very sorry I did.. The builder will promise you the world and deliver you headaches.
For almost two years I am waiting for major repairs to problems addressed at closing..For example...warped kitchen cabinets...cracking hardwood floors..a leaky basement and if tats not enough te eat and air conditioning does not work properly.
Its been a nightmare..they will fight you in every way to fix the problems, or blame someone else. then the defects don't get fixed

my suggestion

use another builder or build it yourself

I am in a Marble Arch home in Manchester NJ. Also would not recommend this builder. Took him to arbitration for water leaks in bsmt. Does not own up to builder's responsibility. Still dealing with this two years later.

Thanks for the info. Did you have a block basement or poured basement? What is defense for not fixing the problem?

Poured bsmt. He insists caulking the front door will solve the water trickling down the basement wall below. Caulking has been done several times throughout last two years, without success. Buyer beware.

I live directly across from Estate at Highgrove in Manalapan Twsp. This is a nine-home, three-car garage community on a busy country road--five houses on one side (my side) and four on the other. The building has been going on for 3 long years. The first year they had to drain the land on one side of the street because they're being built on a high water table. The large pump was going day and night--even on holidays--and it was LOUD! There are ONLY five homes left but it doesn't look like people are too eager to pay the exhorbitant prices this builder wants for huge backyards and no trees. They are really pushing to get these homes finished, even working weekends. There is no peace any more on this road.

I have owned a Marble Arch Home - In Manchester off Rt571. Marble Arch quality is terrible. The owner simply hires whatever sub that comes in with the cheapest prices while charging you top dollar. Everything from the basement leaking, windows not closing correctly, cabinets to matching (color) and horrible sheetrock work. DO NOT pay good money to have a home built by Marble Arch, you be sorry.

i have been living in jackson for 8 years in a home built by Marble Arch Homes and my entire community has been thrilled with our homes and the customer service that Marble Arch Homes provided- they build a far superior product to most builders.

I find it very curious that 'happy buyer in Jackson','luxury buyer in Manalpan' and 'strathallanbuyer' all decided to post on exactly the same day. And even more interesting that all three are posting from the same location. How convenient!

Seems that Marble Arch Builders is based in Jackson, NJ. The same location that 'happy buyer in Jackson','luxury buyer in Manalpan' and 'strathallanbuyer' all posted from yesterday. What an amazing coincidence!

Hi Manalapan homeowner (and Manchester as well);
I had been considering a home in Highgrove - manalapan but was actually skeptical because the pump in basement was full of water, the kitchen cabinets were listed as maple but are laminite and the builder and realtor seemed quite evasive. I couldn't even get a brochure with house dimensions and standard inclusions or info on the warranty. I may have signed contract with contingency but am feeling I'd probably have to fight "him" to get the large deposit back. How do you feel and what is it like living there? Thanks so much.
