                              This house is located in a great neighborhood at the northern end of Ocean City two blocks from the beach. This area is known as 'North End' just south of 'Garden Section' of Ocean City and is nice because everything is close. You can walk or bike to most destinations including the Wonderland rides on the boardwalk at 5th Street. At the same time, you are far enough away from the main activity that it's quiet at night.

                              The boardwalk runs from 1st Street south for approximately 24 blocks or 2.5 miles. The main boardwalk runs from 5th street south to 14th Street. Ocean City is rated the number one family resort city in the United States by Travel Channel. Please check out our other Cozy Beach Digs listing 157515 about 2 blocks north of 1st street and approximately 1 block east from this house on Stenton Place.

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: My husband and I met in Hermosa Beach, California in the early 90's and lived there until 1998 before moving to Seattle, Washington. I'm from Reno, Nevada where we were married and I grew up on the north shore of Lake Tahoe in Tyrolean Village. My husband is from New Jersey and he grew up in Monmouth County. We have three children, our two older kids were born in California, one in Newport and one in Torrance and our youngest was born in Kirkland, Washington. We moved to northern New Jersey in 2001, we lived in Madison for a short period then moved to Chatham where we've lived since 2002.

                              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Gardens:
                              We bought this house in 2005 after selling some investment property. We originally intended on buying the other house we own, listing 157515, but at the time this house was more attractive and we really loved the size of the house, the detached garage and the great neighborhood location. We've had a lot of great times in this house with family and friends over the years and love being there every summer.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              This house is great, it's a nice size for two small families or one extended family. We've done many updates, but maintained a lot of the old charm of this house. It has a great layout and a very relaxing and comfortable environment, plus the large front porch provides a great meeting place for the family. During the days and nights we're down the shore, we spend a lot of time sitting on the porch, talking, reading and relaxing there The house has a nice driveway that can be used for parking up to 3 cars, a play area or staging area for your daily trips to the beach. It's in a great location, everything you need is a short walk or bike ride. If you want to leave the island for any reason for a day to play golf or go to dinner in AC, Cape May, Somers Point or Long Port, it's very easy from the Long Port Bridge at the north end or the 9th Street Causeway.
