Located in the oldest town on Long Beach Island, this home started its life in about 1870 as the Beach Haven Lumber Company. The main building, along with the numerous out-buildings served the construction and home needs of LBI and the neighboring mainland towns. One of the smaller buildings which remains to this day, The Cottage, was the carriage house for the old Baldwin Hotel.
Converted to a residence in the early 1900s, this home is now on the National Registry of Historic Homes. Over the years, the main house and the cottage have been a residence and beach house to a few families. In 2011, Hurricane Sandy left her mark with about 2 feet of water throughout the cottage and main house.
Major renovations and repairs were completed in 2015. The Lumber Yard is now open to guests. For an up to date quote, you can contact me directly at : email@example.com or 201-400-2910.
Decorated in consultation with SFE, Inc, the main house boasts a designer kitchen, dining room seating for 10, living room, powder room and full laundry area, and a TV/media room with a flat screen cable television. Internet is also provided. There are three master suites on the second level each with a queen size bed and an en suite bathroom. On the third floor there is a twin bedroom for 2 and bunk room for 4 with a shared full bath. The main house has full laundry area with Bosch washer and dryer, iron and table top ironing board.
The first floor of The Cottage has a full efficiency kitchen with a bistro dining area, an open area living room with a flat screen cable TV and sleeper sofa, and a powder room with a stacked washer-dryer, as well. The second floor of the cottage has a shared bathroom with shower. There are 2 bedrooms: one queen bedroom and one single bedroom.
Restored to the design of its time, the exterior of the property has not been neglected. There are two private hot & cold showers each with a dressing area, a gas grille, and a dining area with seating for 12 on the deck off the house. Enjoy morning coffee or a quite place to get away and read on the private balcony off bedroom #3.
Not to be forgotten, children of all ages can enjoy the dipping pool which is only 4 1/2 feet deep. But the best is the full wraparound porch in the front of the main house. Sit, relax, and enjoy the church carillon at 12 and 5. The beautifully landscaped yard with grass, trees and flowers would be an ideal spot for an intimate wedding celebration.
Park the car and forget it. The Lumber Yard is located within walking distance to LBI’s white sandy beaches, bayside boating, great island shopping, many restaurants, Fantasy Island Amusement and Water Park for young and older alike, as well as Veteran’s Park for concerts and other activities.
