Holgate house description

Thank you for your interest in our vacation property. Due to Hurricane Sandy, we've decided to re-build a BRAND NEW HOME!

This gorgeous Cape-style home sits on a large 80' x 62' lot with plenty of off-street parking + a nice fenced yard with a picnic table, several lounge chairs, brick paver patio, a second gas grill, and an outside shower (w/hot and cold water).

We will consider pets! Please see policy below (i.e. no long-haired shedding pets will be permitted unless clipped and groomed prior to moving in).

The first floor has the Master BR and Master Bathroom along with LR, DR, kitchen, another 1/2 bath AND a nice sundeck off of the DR. The 2nd-floor has 3 BR's plus a full bath.

The southern exposure to the back of the home affords plenty of sun and the view of the stars at night is truly 'astronomical'; bring your telescope!

There is deck furniture for your dining and relaxing pleasure plus an electrical outlet and light fixture. The deck conveniently also has a new Weber natural gas grill (no tanks!) for your BBQ's!

Since this area of LBI is only one block wide, there is very little street traffic which offers security, safety, and serenity to enhance your relaxation.

The home affords close proximity to both the beach (7th from the beach) and the bay (10th from the bay). As for the beach, because this area of LBI is sparsely populated, it is very spacious; no need to worry about 'turf wars' and the boulevard is very easy to cross! Beach access is directly at the end of the street.

The water is very clean and dolphin schools can often be seen feeding close to the beach. Surf fishing can be good if your timing is right. The beaches are life-guarded. Keep in mind that the house is only a short walk from the beach should you need to return for something.

As for the bay located at the other end of the street, there are spectacular views of the sunset and bay waters. As it is close to the inlet, boats of all sizes can be seen traversing the waters. Just a few yards to the south is a newly re-built playground which is State-owned and maintained. It has a small beach where there are no waves and warmer waters... great for toddlers! It also offers benches, a swing set, see-saws, basketball court, tennis court, and a play gym. On the north side of our street is a bulkheaded lagoon where many boats are docked and crabbing can be done. Check out the beautiful boats and homes, too!

We have some bicycles and beach chairs which you are welcome to use (please check for availability). One new addition is a tandem bike (built for two!)! How's THAT for fun! Please bring your own bike helmets. Also, we have 'boogie boards' for your use as we know that these items can take up a lot of room when packing the car for vacation. As a courtesy, we also provide four beach badges which will save you quite a bit of money.

At the very southern end of the island, about 12 short blocks away, is Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Preserve; we recommend taking a nice walk or bike ride. This Federally-funded and maintained area has SPECTACULAR, uninhibited views of the ocean, the natural beach, and the Atlantic City skyline. Many wedding photos are taken here! It also has a beach for bathing, public restrooms, a shower, and a long jetty/bulkhead which is great for fishing. Admission is FREE for motor vehicles, foot and bicycle traffic. Also at this end (just prior to the park entrance) is a deli/convenience store; great for picking up a cup of coffee, bagels, a newspaper, some lotion, lunchmeat, milk, etc.

The island, about 18 miles long, has quite a bit of history. There is two museums close by in Beach Haven, old Victorian homes dating back many years, and 'Old Barney'... Barnegat Lighthouse, at the north end of the island. Also in Barnegat Light Borough resides the commercial fishing fleet in Viking Village. Stop by to see them unload their catches, buy some (very) fresh seafood, or do some shopping.

Party boats are also close by for those who enjoy deep-sea fishing; they even offer rod rentals, supply the bait, and clean your fish for you! The HUGE jetty at Barnegat Inlet was re-built a few years ago and is open to visitors and fisherman who can walk out along the inlet (cement sidewalk with railing).

There are plenty of restaurants and retail shops all over the island! Fantasy Island, an arcade and amusement park, is located about three away in Beach Haven; there is also a magnificent water slide there! A public golf course is about 15 miles away on the mainland but the island has plenty of miniature courses which the whole family can enjoy.

PETS: We understand that pets are an integral part of any family and that kennels are expensive, inconvenient, and stressful. We will consider pets (for an additional non-refundable fee of $150/pet) on a case-by-case basis. Sorry, but long-haired, shedding pets are not permitted unless clipped and groomed before moving in. No guarantees that we will permit a pet.

As you can see, the area is very attractive, offers many conveniences and we, as homeowners, offer many extras that others don't. I have a few more pictures available. Please e-mail or call with any questions.

Thanks for considering our post-Sandy vacation property and we hope to have you as our guests. Either way, have a memorable vaction on LBI!!!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1991

              About the owner: First and foremost, I am VERY easy to work with as a property owner. But I DO expect my home to be treated with care and respect. That being said, here's a little info about my wife and I... I recently changed careers and now am a Registered Nurse. My wife is retired from Travelers Insurance Company. We LOVE Holgate and our street, in particular, as it is filled with fabulous neighbors!!!

              Why the Owner Chose Holgate:
              My wife and I rented in September, 1990 and fell in love with Holgate. The next Spring, we bought the well-kept home (on a NICE double lot) from a nice gentleman who lived alone. On October 29, 2012 a young lady named 'Sandy' paid us a visit. Although the original home was engulfed in 4' of water, it was repairable. However, after much consideration, we decided to raze our old friend of 21+ years and build anew! It was truly a bittersweet time for us...

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Close to the beach and bay...the island is only one block wide in my area so we enjoy the proximity to the beach (only seven houses) and watch the sunset at the bay. There's also a playground (State owned so it's top quality!) with a play-gym for kids, swings, tennis courts, and basketball court. Very little traffic on the street...it's quiet and relaxing.
