Ocean Grove apartment description

This lovely apartment sports 5 sofas, one of which houses a Queen size bed. Two bedrooms, Queen bed and two twins, have roomy closets and sweet decor to relax in after a relaxing day taking in all that Ocean Grove's Victorian seaside town has to offer. The day/trundle bed room has a 32 inch flat screen to get away from the gang, if you need to.

Enclosed porch offers Lake views and space to spread out with a good book, play games or do a puzzle. Porch door offers direct access to the front yard overlooking Wesley Lake.

The living room houses a desk, two sofas (one is a Queen size sofa bed) and second 32' flat screen. Coffee table and good lighting provide all the comforts of home.

The eat-in kitchen sports a stainless steel French-door refrigerator and dishwasher, oodles of counter space, full size oven and stove, and breakfast table.

The newly renovated bathroom has a shower over tub, pedestal sink, and toilet. A washer and dryer will be installed mid- June. The stackable washer dryer make the beach going a breeze.

This open spaced apartment has a small entry hall for beach things, leading to the kitchen entry door. A second door also provides access to / from the window-enclosed porch.

The front yard overlooks Wesley Lake that separates Ocean Grove from Asbury Park. The foot bridge allows you walking access to Asbury's trendy restaurants and nightlife without the worry of parking. Walk along the lake to the beach, watch the reincarnated Asbury Swan Boats, or just enjoy the table and chairs on the lawn to sip a drink while the sun sets. Our Lilac bushes offer some privacy from strollers, but provide full view of the scenery.

                  Ocean Grove houses one of the most fascinating charters involving the rental of Summer Tents that surround the Great Auditorium. Within driving distance are several outlet malls, Six Flags Great Adventure, bus and train to NYC, State Parks and the world's largest Salt Water Pool with natural waves, just like the machines make at our favorite man-made pools (the Atlantic Ocean..... :o)

                  For those family members who dislike sand or water, Main Street Ocean Grove and Asbury Park offer antique shops (as does RedBank within driving distance.) Good restaurants both with bar or BYOB abound. Or grab a beach chair on a Friday or Saturday night, sit outside the hall and enjoy the Music or shows at the Great Auditorium. Or buy a ticket and skip the beach chair. Follow up with an Ice Cream Cone at Day's or at Nagles.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1991

                  About the owner: We fell in love in Ocean Grove, got married here and raised our kids. We bought this property as a year round rental unit and decided to renovate it since last May and do Summer rentals.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ocean Grove:
                  Already owned it, but didn't want to do the year round tenant when we had so much fun decorating and furnishing for shorter term rentals.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  On the Lake, close to everything and easy walking for New Yorkers or access by train.
