Property description

This is a charming older (early 1970s) large cottage on the beachfront. The decks are cantilevered over the dunes, offering stunning unobstructed 270-degree views of miles of wide white beaches and endless blue ocean from the living room, dining room, kitchen, and beachfront bedrooms. The beach in front of the house is extremely wide, with clean fine white sand and lifeguards posted in designated swimming areas in the summer season.

The house is equidistant between the town centers of Avalon (to the north) and Stone Harbor (to the south). Each town center is a 3-minute drive from the house, or a pleasant 40-minute walk on the wide, flat beach, or a 10-minute bike ride on the main road (max car speed: 25 mph). Avalon's small town center has an old-time American atmosphere, with small shops and restaurants, bicycle rentals, a park, tennis courts, playgrounds, and a new public library with computer terminals and Wi-Fi.

The slightly larger and busier town of Stone Harbor has wonderful shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants, and a popular movie theater. Or drive 30-45 minutes to visit historic Cape May with its Victorian houses, charming walks, and excellent shops, galleries and restaurants. Less than an hour's drive from Avalon are Atlantic City with its famous boardwalk casinos, and Wildwood with its oceanfront amusement park.

We have vacationers who return to the house year after year. We look forward to hearing from you!

Location

Car: Necessary

Avalon's beach was not affected by Hurricane Sandy, and the house was untouched. The edge of the damage started a few miles north of Avalon.

The main attractions of Avalon are the beach, which is unusually wide and uncrowded, and the surf. Avalon is a low-density, family-friendly community with no highrises or large multifamily buildings. Stores and restaurants are small and family-owned. The wide main street (speed limit 25) is great for biking and jogging.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Weekends at the shore are a summer ritual for many New Jersey families. My family made day trips to the beach for years, until one summer, 45 years ago, we joined with another family to rent a tiny cottage on Longboat Island (NJ) for one whole week. We were hooked, and for the next decade we rented cottages for one or two weeks until we were finally able to buy a house at the beach. Avalon is a wonderful place for families, and equally wonderful for those who want a low-key place away from the noise, stress and fast pace of urban life. And of course the glitter and grit of Atlantic City's casinos and boardwalk are less than an hour's drive away. The Nor'easter of November 2009 washed away a lot of sand from the Avalon and Stone Harbor beaches, and did quite a lot of damage down the coast all the way to Virginia. The beach in front of our house, while reduced, is still broad and wide, since the high dunes in this area are so extensive. The dunes are intact and fully protected all the houses in this area. So while some sand was lost, there will be no effect on the use of the beaches in 2010.

Why the Owner Chose Avalon:
Avalon has one of the last remaining high dunes systems on the east coast, providing a beautiful backdrop to the beach. Avalon's 4-mile beachfront is lined with wide-spaced single-family houses; there are no high-rises anywhere in Avalon or Stone Harbor. For those who seek open spaces and tranquility, there is probably no town on the Jersey shore that offers owners and vacationers more of both.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is interesting that while some of the Atlantic Ocean beaches on the east coast of the U.S. have had erosion problems, the beach in Avalon has actually built up naturally over the years, due to favorable wind patterns and water currents. The dunes have probably tripled in depth over the last 35 years, and the beach width has probably doubled. The fabulous views of the dunes, beach and ocean from the decks of this house are a truly unique feature.
