Property description

Designed with families in mind, this century-old seashore Dutch Colonial sits a block and a half to the family-friendly beach and Avon Pavilion with its shops, restrooms and restaurant. Just a short walk to the stores and eateries on Main Street, the house has been recently redone from top to bottom combining modern convenience with vintage charm and every imaginable accommodation (see list of items included with the house below).

The first floor boasts an open floor plan with living room, dining room, newly-remodeled kitchen, full bath and bedroom. Upstairs there is a second full bath and four more bedrooms; plus the living room sleeper sofa provides extra space for your weekend guests.

After a morning run to the bakery for crullers, take a stroll on the boardwalk or a bike ride to nearby Spring Lake or Ocean Grove for lunch in an outdoor cafe. Following an afternoon on the beach swimming, sunning and searching for sea glass, enjoy a cookout on the backyard deck. In the evenings you could drive down to Atlantic City or over to Monmouth Racetrack; or stick around the neighborhood and play miniature golf, shop in factory outlets, visit a local pub or just hang out on the rocking chair front porch.
