Singer Billy Joel cuts price of Manalapan mansion to $27 million


Billy Joel loves you just the way you are, but deep-pocketed buyers haven’t proven so keen on the Manalapan property he’s selling. So Joel cut the asking price of the spread at 1920 and 1940 S. Ocean Blvd. to $27 million.

Last year, Joel put the properties on the market for $29 million. Jack Elkins of Fite Shavell remains the listing agent. Joel in 2014 paid $11.8 million for 1920 S. Ocean and $6.5 million for 1940 S. Ocean, then paid for what Elkins called “a massive renovation.”
