Property description

In 1956 my parents bought a shore house in Stone Harbor on seven mile island. All eight of the children grew up there in the summers. The simplicity and beauty of the house became part of our lives and our hearts. Life was simpler then with lots of sun, sand and good food. When my Dad died and left us the house we didn’t want to change a thing about it, as if that could somehow bring us back to the joyous past. It really can’t bring you back but the house is as simple today as it was in 1955 when we bought it. We have added a new kitchen, air conditioning, cable tv, internet and a better heating system for the winter, but the feel of the place is still 1960 strong. If you are looking for the seashore the way it used to be come and share our house

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1956

About the owner: We grew up in Ardmore, Pa and we were fortunate enough to summer in Stone Harbor from the 50s through the 90s. We all live in Philadelphia and the suburbs and share our shore home.

Why the Owner Chose Stone Harbor:
Our father and his many siblings visited Stone Harbor back in 1918, and kept coming back, renting when they could through the years, After renting my parents bought this house for their growing family in 1955. It wasn't unusual to have 15 or 20 people for dinner. This has been a special home for family and friends through the years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
At five houses from the beach, it is an easy walk for young children and older adults. This is a comfortable home with a great bath house for a warm shower after a long day at the beach. Relax with a cocktail on the front porch and listen to the sound of the ocean while you wait for whoever's turn it is to cook dinner.
