Avon By The Sea cottage description

This Victorian Seashore cottage has been standing 1000 ft. from the Atlantic Ocean since approx. 1880. It has all the modern amenities and was totally redecorated within the last 2 years. One of its most enjoyable features is the patio and side yard adjacent to the newly installed french doors of the dining room. The front porch is surrounded by lush plantings to give a cozy feeling while curled up with a book as the rest of the world passes by. The first floor has a bright living room (with TV and home theater system), a newly redone and well equipped kitchen (microwave oven, coffeemaker, etc.), a comfortable dining room with large french doors opening onto the side yard, and a full bath. Up the stairway is a very bright, roomy master bedroom (w/ king-size bed that can be separated into 2 searate twins), a half bath, a 2nd bedroom w/ double bed and a mid-bedroom with a captain's twin bed. There is also a large outdoor shower, a charcoal grill, washer/dryer, and air-conditioning.


This cottage has a homey, comfortable feeling, like the old seashore homes had in an earlier time. The little town of Avon is full of architectural gems and has a wonderfully old-fashioned boardwalk where people jog, stroll, or sit and watch the ocean from early morning until night but is not busy with commercial establishments or hustle and bustle. All forms of water sports (surfing, boating, and fishing) are available as are nearby golfing, tennis, live music, theater, and fine dining. In this family-oriented town the beach is white sand and very clean with an excellent surf. A pretty lake with swans defines one end of Avon while the Shark River defines the other end. It's a 5 block walk inland to town and minutes drive to larger shopping centers.

              Avon-by-the-Sea is a small seashore village that is very quiet, safe, and friendly but also very close to major travel attractions. It's a rare situation when you can be biking along quiet seaside streets and then drive a mile and get on a train for New York City with all its exciting cultural events and every form of entertainment (there is also a high speed ferry that goes into NYC from a port 30 min. from Avon). We find the contrast delightful, it feels like the best of both worlds. 20 minutes inland brings you to N.J.'s horse racing at Monmouth Racetrack while 20 minutes in another direction leads to Seven Flags/Great Adventure Amusement Park. Gambling casinos and world class entertainers can be seen in Atlantic City (1 hour), The Garden State Performing Arts Center is 1 hour, historic Philadelphia 'Birthplace of the Constitution' is 1. 5 hours drive and the lovely college town of Princeton is 1 hour away as are the lovely Johnson Sculpture Gardens.
