Ocean front beach house located on the most sought-after stretch of Atlantic Beach, Ocean Ridge Drive. Owned by the same family for over 60 years, this charming house has entertained many generations of family and friends. Appreciated by those who want a beach house ‘like they used to be’, this is a place where you feel comfortable with the windows open listening to the waves crashing on the beach from your bedroom.
Extensively renovated in 2014 but the rustic feel of the interior remain. Updates include complete upstairs bathroom renovations, all new pine paneling in the oceanfront bedrooms, which compliments the original pine paneling in the main living and newly refinished hardwood floors throughout the entire upstairs.
New features include a 60” internet compatible, flat screen TV, high-speed TWC wireless internet and phone service. Premium and HD TV channels are included. In addition, the ocean front bedroom downstairs has a 42” flat screen with HD cable. Easy to set up as a children’s viewing room as it has 3 twin beds.
The main upstairs living area consists of kitchen, dining room that can seat 12, spacious living room, 4 bedrooms and 1 & ½ baths. Upstairs bedrooms ; #1: one king, #2: two twins, #3: two twins & 2 full, and #4: one queen. The one feature that everyone loves is the huge ocean front porch. From your rocking chair, savor that first cup of coffee or afternoon glass of wine while enjoying a 180 degree view of the beach. You are literally 30 feet from the beach dunes so you can watch all the action on the beach without leaving your chair.
The downstairs (ground level) has 2 bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms. Bedroom #5: Two twins and #6: three twins. The washer/dryer, second refrigerator, 2 separate showers and a new deluxe gas grill are located on this level. The house can accommodate up to 8 – 10 cars including a 2 car garage – perfect for large family gatherings. There are plenty beach chairs and toys such as a sea kayak, 1 surfboard, as well boogie boards and skim board.
Comfortable for just 2 people or up 14 for a large family vacation, you’ll love the relaxed feel of our ‘Little Cottage by the Sea’. You’ll want to return, as most do, year after year and cherish those moments for a lifetime.
