Property description

This unique 3 bedroom 2 bath unit is nestled atop the Merrimac Condominium located on the 80th street beach block in Avalon NJ. This well maintained building is located across the street from the Stone Harbor recreational area. This area has a baseball/softball field, soccer fields, 11 tennis courts, basketball courts, and a skateboard park. The recreational area is also home to a wonderful children's playground complete with swings, a large climb & slide jungle gym, gazebo and a full bocce court.

The Merrimac shares a block with the very popular Windrift restaurant/lounge. Connected to the 79th/80th street beach block you will find a total of 5 restaurants and 3 bars/lounges. If you venture a block further, you will find more restaurants, take-out seafood places, a pizza shop and a market.

This location is within walking distance of Stone Harbor's quaint and charming 96th Street (Main Street) with numerous restaurants, shops, famous ice cream establishments and kids’ activities such as roof top mini golf, Movie Theater, etc.

Did we mention location? Walk half a block from the condominium (crossing no streets) to the private, wide, beautiful, clean beach where you can enjoy the sand and surf. Ice cream vendors push carts along the shoreline, so you can enjoy a cold treat and an ice cold bottle of water without leaving your beach chair. When you are finished in the sand, come back to the Merrimac for a relaxing dip in the heated pool. If you are not a fan of the beach, spend your whole day at the pool, the choice is yours!

The 3 bedroom condominium is bright, spacious, recently remodeled and freshly painted. Enjoy the new, large, flat screen television mounted in the living room and watch the waves roll in from any seat on the living room sofa. Every bedroom is equipped with a ceiling fan, an ihome alarm clock/docking station and flat screen television. You will find all the comforts of home while on vacation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Philadelphia Magazine Article - by Michael Callahan, June 2008 AVALON & STONE HARBOR: THE VIBE Lift the Main Line off the Main Line, hike it 37 miles down the A.C. Expressway and 23 more down the Parkway,and plant firmly on seven-mile island. Add a generous portion of Center City-ites on weekends, plus a heaping handful of overprivileged high-school seniors/college seniors/single yuppies in group houses, and two pinches each of Lilly Pulitzer, Jimmy Buffett and Mercedes-Benz. Fold in friendly locals. Mix well.

Why the Owner Chose Avalon:
Our family has rented at the Merrimac Condominium for years before we purchased. We always dreamed of owning a unit in the building. Avalon NJ, specifically the Merrimac Condominium has always been an incredibly enjoyable family vacation spot. We were able to realize our lifelong dream of owning a unit when real estate prices started to decline a few years ago. Now we are busy making many improvements to our ‘home at the shore.’ We invite you to bring your family and share our home on your next vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
A wonderful feature is the covered deck area outside of our unit. You can dine, enjoy a cocktail, or play cards on the table located in the deck area. Rain or shine, sit and watch the waves free from nature's elements.
