Barnegat Light house description

This house has it all!! Recently upgraded this reversed living vacation home is located on the ocean block. A new kitchen and new bathrooms highlight the upgrades. Enjoy the sunsets from any of the three decks along with ocean and bay views. This house is situated on the beach block where a small boardwalk leads you to the sand gitney that transports you to the water's edge protecting your feet from the hot sand.

Because the home is designed as reversed living, you enter the front door and walk up the steps to find yourself on the first floor where the three bedrooms, den, laundry room and large bathroom are located. There are two bedrooms with 2 twin beds in each and a third bedroom with a queen size bed. A newly upgraded full bath, laundry room and den with private deck complete the floor plan on that level.

Continuing the walkup, the second floor plan is open and the high ceilings in the living room/dining room/kitchen area create an open and airy feel. A large deck with BBQ is directly off the kitchen. and up the spiral staircase is a 50 ft rooftop deck with views of ocean and bay. The MBR suite with a full bed is on this level. There is also an additional half bath.

The custom kitchen is very well-equipped making it easy to prepare family meals. After an active beach day, dine out at one of the excellent local restaurants! Amenities include Central Air, Dish Washer, flat screen TV's, Stereo system, WiFi Internet Service, Three Decks. The high point for most beach goers is the outdoor shower where one can shower under the stars. It is located in the back yard.

Convenient tractor-tram helps families get to the ocean. The short boardwalk at the end of the block connects to the tram. It's a great convenience for elderly persons or young families with children. It runs about every 20 minutes from 10 am until 5 pm with a one hour interruption from 1-2 for the driver's lunch.

Specialized sand wheel chairs are available to rent from the town. The Municipal offices are on 8th street where you can get updated events going on in town.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Barnegat Light:
Privacy, natural beauty and a wonderful beach. Having grown up on the ocean myself, I sought out this area to raise my sons and to enjoy the tranquility this section of LBI provides. This is where safety and peacefulness abound.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Easy beach and bay accessibility. Wonderful walks along the inlet on the new walkway near Old Barney. Complete safety from storms because of the carefully placed sand dunes and protected inlet. Quiet summer retreat where residents and visitors are allowed to sleep in. Barnegat Light is truly a family destination.
