Bay Head house description

Celebrate summer in this unique, historic Jersey Shore home. This property is perfect for families and friends seeking stress free beach proximity with plenty of space and charm inside and out. Located across the street from the guarded beach, kids spend their days riding the waves under the watch of our very friendly life guards while you relax with toes in sand and cool beverage in hand.
Located a stone's throw from Bay Head's fabulous bakery, visitors can walk or ride a bike to local shops just a block away. Ideal for kids who love to play hide-and-seek and grown ups who enjoy cool drinks on one of the wrap-around porches or a good game of ping pong.
The big, bright, fully equipped, family-style eat-in kitchen features all new appliances and a large eating and prep center island for chopping, chatting and serving quick meals and snacks to kids of all ages.
We like to breakfast on the east porch and dinners outside, though the dining room and kitchen each seat 10. Feel free to set up croquet or badminton in the yard. There is plenty of space for a good game of tag, too. The eco-friendly playset offers kids safe hiding outside in the yard, a nice spot to share a handful of raisins and lots of sliding and swinging fun! The outdoor shower is a staple of the classic shore cottage. Friends and family have celebrated weddings, birthdays and a variety of milestones in this home and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. And the Good Humor Man drives past the house daily!

              Car: Not Necessary

              RIght in Bay Head, the small shops meet all of our visitors needs. Nearby there is a cheese shop, liquor store, clothing and gift shops. Of course the surf shop is a great stop, too!

              The scoop shop is three blocks from the house.

              Larger grocery stores and chain stores are only a 10 minute drive inland! We love the milkshakes and crunchy onion rings at Dorcas' Restaurant and the Bakery makes world class chocolate brownies with butter cream icing!!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1965

              About the owner: Our parents rented in Bay Head for years before this house became available in 1965. Five sisters own the home today and we celebrate graduations, birthdays, business partnerships and family milestones here by the beach.

              Why the Owner Chose Bay Head:
              Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the 'Wheeler's Home Cottage' sheds light on the grandeur of life at the turn of the century. From the dressing rooms in the cellar to claw-foot tubs and meticulous woodwork and architecture, we appreciate the proximity to the guarded beach and local shops. At our annual Kids' Day reunion, we hold relay races in the large yard.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Above all, this home is a memory maker. If you want to start a family tradition that your kids will talk about from now until they have kids of their own, there is no better place for you than 18 Bridge in Bay Head, N.J.!
