Historic Fair Haven known for its quaint character and small town charm, where children still ride their bikes to school.


Located on the Rumson Peninsula, along the banks of the Navesink River, Fair Haven is bordered by Red Bank and Little Silver to the west. Fair Haven is home to approximately 6,000 people in roughly 2.1 square miles. Fair Haven real estate is a mix of newly constructed and renovated seashore colonials, as well as much desired waterfront properties. Residents enjoy the quick commute to New York City and being able to come home and launch their kayak into the Navesink River after a long day at work.
