                          This house is located at the northern end of Ocean City on the 800 block of Stenton Place which is the main beach block. It's a short 5 minute walk to the boardwalk which starts and is accessible one block south of Stenton at St James. The boardwalk runs from St. James, south for approximately 24 blocks or 2.5 miles. The main commercial boardwalk starts at 5th street and runs south to 14th Street.

                          This area is known as 'North End' just south of 'Garden Section' of Ocean City. This area 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. Ocean City is rated the number one family resort city in the United States by Travel Channel.

                          Please check out our Classic Beach Digs listing 134026 about 2 blocks south of Stenton Place and approximately 1 block west of this house at Ocean and 1st Streets.

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, Boardwalk:
                          We bought this house in 2007. We had looked at this house in 2005 and were intent on buying it but decided to buy the other house we own, listing 134026. At the time this house needed a lot of work and the other house was more attractive. However, this house stayed on the market and we got a great deal in 2007, this house is great and we love the street, it’s one of the best if not the best at the Northend of town. We've had a lot of great times in this house, it’s very cozy and comfortable.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This house is the perfect size for a small to medium size family. The house was gut renovated down to the studs immediately after we purchased it and we maintained a lot of the old charm in the renovation. It has a great open layout, everything you need is right there. It has 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 really nice and large outside shower, a small rear deck and side yard for grilling. It's in a great location, everything you need is a short walk or bike ride and the beach is very close and the neighbors are really nice. 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.
