Private Homes, Gardens house description

This bright and beautiful, updated, original OC home in the desirable Gardens/North End section has the perfect blend of location and amenities. With this single family home you do not have to contest with families above or below - it's all yours and comes with multiple off street parking spaces.

You won't find a better home to fully relax and create your own summertime memories. Close to guarded beaches (North, Surf and Atlantic), as well as the surfing beach at Waverly. Enjoy sunrises on the back porch/deck (or front) with your cup of coffee. After the beach, freshen up in the brand new, clean, double door outdoor shower house with a rainfall shower head and enjoy the glorious sunsets on the front porch or deck with a cool beverage and family and friends. Relax. Put your feet up and enjoy the Shore.

The house is ideal for family gatherings, large or extended families or multiple families.

The first floor provides a spacious and sun filled front family room with plenty of seating and a TV; sunny dining room with an extra leaf insert for the table to accommodate 8-10, eat in kitchen with coffee maker, toaster oven for morning bagels and afternoon dogs, microwave; a separate back family room/guest suite with attached full bath and pullout Queen sofa, closet, TV with DVD and card table for board games. This room includes access to the large back deck, just above the back patio, which includes a glass topped/umbrella covered table with brand new gas grill.

Upstairs you enjoy four bedrooms: a front master bedroom with a King bed, TV-DVD, and closet, with a separate, sunlit sitting room and access to the front top deck; a middle Queen bedroom with closet; and two back bedrooms, each with a closet, one with a full size bed; the other a twin, with access to the expansive back deck.

The third floor - the Kids Hangout - contains two twin beds and a full size, wooden futon couch/bed, a TV with DVD, and full bath.

As the kids play cards or outside games (we know, WiFi and cable are also here), you can grill out your gourmet meal (burgers and dogs are gourmet, right?), or order local take-out, see reviews below.

If you want to stay in and decompress, do it, there's plenty of room. If you'd like to head to the Rides, it's a leisurely 15 minute walk. This house is perfectly situated, just blocks from the beaches, several restaurants (Cousins, Island Grill, or nestled in the dunes - Northend Beach Grill), two great ice cream parlors (TJ's and Annie's Carousel), two delis/small groceries (Berenatos and Bakelys) and one block to Express Pizza, which offers pizza, stromboli, subs and more. Last but not least is Pesanos, a fantastic variety store that carries everything you've forgotten.

This quiet, one-way, one block, tree-lined street has very little traffic and is just right for families with children. Get back to the times when you were a kid and it was just about having fun and spending time with family and friends. In fact, with the four porches/decks, have plenty of family and friends - make new friends!

Remember, this is the Shore.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: We've been here for generations, dating back to the late 1800's. Other places are wonderful in their own right, but OC is just the place for our family. We love the atmosphere, powdery sand beaches, the electricity of Boardwalk and the quiet calm of the Gardens.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Gardens:
                  This is a single family home. You do not have to contest with families above or below - it's all yours. Plenty of off-street parking. Lot's of room to explore for the kids on foot or by bike. It's a safe, quiet, rare one-way, one block street tucked in the family-friendly Gardens neighborhood.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This home is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded downtown area, but close enough that you can get there on foot and be in the center of it all if you like. Ocean City differs from many larger suburban neighborhoods in that you can park your car for the week (except for larger grocery store runs) and get around by foot or bike.
