About the Property

3 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

We are so thankful that this grand old lady of Avon, standing just 1000 ft. from the Atlantic Ocean since approx. 1880, was spared from damage during the hurricane. The house has been fully renovated with all the modern amenities and has been totally redecorated. The entire kitchen is new with stainless steel appliances and granite counters. One of its most enjoyable features is the wrap-around porch to catch the sea breeze. The first floor has, in addition to the new kitchen, a very sunny living room (with TV, DVD/VCR, and stereo), large dining room, and a half bath. Up the antique stairway is a very bright, roomy Master Bedroom (w/ King-size bed which can be separated into 2 separate twins) , a new full bathroom complete with marble topped double sink vanity and soaker tub, a 2nd bedroom with a queen bed and small balcony, and a 3rd bedroom with a twin bed (or King if trundle is opened) . There is also a large outdoor shower, a gas grill, washer/dryer, and central air-conditioning. An attached cottage that is smaller is also available. This house has a wonderful feeling, like stepping back into a calmer time.
The little town of Avon further enhances this sense for it is full of architectural gems and has a wonderfully old-fashioned boardwalk where people jog, stroll, or sit and watch the ocean from early morning until night but is not busy with commercial establishments or and hustle and bustle. All forms of water sports (surfing, boating, and fishing) are available as are nearby golfing, tennis, live music and theater, and fine dining. In this family-oriented town the beach is white sand and very clean with an excellent surf. A pretty lake with swans defines one end of Avon while the Shark River defines the other end. It's a 5 block walk inland to town and minutes drive to larger shopping centers.

Avon-By-The-Sea is a small seashore village that is very quiet, safe, and friendly but also very close to major travel attractions. It's a rare situation when you can be biking along quiet seaside streets and then drive a mile and get on a train for New York City with all its exciting cultural events and every form of entertainment (there is also a high speed ferry that goes into NYC from a port 30 min. from Avon) . We find the contrast delightful, it feels like the best of both worlds. 20 minutes inland brings you to N. J. 's horse racing at Monmouth Racetrack while 20 minutes in another direction leads to Seven Flags/Great Adventure Amusement Park. Gambling casinos and world class entertainers can be seen in Atlantic City (1 hour) , The Garden State Performing Arts Center is 1 hour, historic Philadelphia 'Birthplace of the Constitution' is 1. 5 hours drive and the lovely college town of Princeton is 1 hour away as are the lovely Johnson Sculpture Gardens.
