Property description

Located in Beach Haven’s lovely Historic District, a block to the beach and minutes from all restaurants and shops, Beach Haven Belle is the ultimate beach house and is custom furnished by a local designer. The Beach Haven Belle is rented on a weekly basis in high season and a three-night minimum in the off-season, this 5-bedroom beach house is tastefully designed and appointed in keeping with the period of its neighboring Victorian Grande Dames.
The style of the house marries traditional and contemporary in a warm open plan that accommodates an extended family sharing in five spacious bedrooms and two distinct and spacious living spaces that flow seamlessly to the outdoor garden “room” behind the house. Three full baths, an open-plan kitchen, laundry room, outdoor bathhouse, and a detached garage complete this old-style beach house custom built for the most discerning of contemporary beachcombers.
Reclaimed wood plank walls, aged zinc counters, 100-year-old barn wood scraped red oak floors, an Aga gas range, retro light fixtures, and a sailboat and lighthouse bunk bed for kids combine to make this truly a one of a kind designer-built gem.
It has a full front porch, all new baths, custom cabinetry made from reclaimed wood and all new appointments hand-picked by the designer. Vintage restored original furniture pieces were collected from antique dealers in Hudson, New York and up and down the East Coast.
In the kitchen, plank walls stained and painted to simulate driftwood, period-style moldings, interior restored windows with original mullions came from a Virginia Farmhouse and traditional mullion, Dade-County-rated storm windows and glass doors are throughout the rest of the house, custom wooden cabinetry and a nautical staircase with semi-open risers were made by local artisans. The best of old and new typifies this stormproof beauty that is the perfect beach home for a large family or for those hoping to make memories with visiting extended family or friends.

Why the Owner Chose Beach Haven:
My husband grew up vacationing on Long Beach Island. He was a lifeguard on the island for seven years as a young man. When we married, I passed the 'causeway test', what every potential wife or husband has to go through before wedding. I fell in love with LBI and decided to renovate and work on the island doing beach house design.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The garden stands out as the most peaceful and beautiful place to both begin and end the days. I love the beautiful views from both master bedrooms, the one-block-away amazing beach and access to all the town has to offer by foot. I especially love that Pearl Street Market is around the corner. It's a great place for socializing. The beach up the street is one of the nicest you an find on the East Coast.
