About the property

Charming Historic Beach Cottage, 4 BR, Newly Renovated, Steps from the Ocean

This 4-bedroom Victorian home is located steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world in quiet Ocean Grove. The house has a large airy front porch, four bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, dining room, brand new kitchen and appliances, living room and TV sitting room. Built in the 1880s, the house has undergone renovations, yet maintains its original cottage character. There are ocean views from the front porch, living room and two bedrooms and the beach is seconds from the front door. Many pieces of original antique furniture are still in use throughout the home. The house was lovingly maintained by one family for over 70 years and the new owners are happy to share the space with guests. 6 1/2 Heck has both the soul of an historic Ocean Grove home and clean uncluttered updates. *Please read House Rules below to be sure this house is a good fit for you.*

The house is located in the National Historic District of Ocean Grove and is surrounded by nearly a mile of antique Victorian homes. Ocean Grove is a quiet peaceful town and is a quick drive or train ride from Manhattan. A walk around town reveals meticulously maintained Victorian structures and a storybook setting of canvas tents clustered around the majestic antique wooden Great Auditorium. The impressive Auditorium holds worship services, concerts and events and houses a massive antique pipe organ. Ocean Grove has a great lineup of activities throughout the year, including a town-wide flea market, antique car shows and house tours. 6 ½ Heck Avenue is a quick five-minute walk to the shops, bakeries and restaurants on Main Avenue in Ocean Grove. Cheese on Main is not to be missed. Days Ice Cream is still in business in its original location after more than 138 years. The beaches of Ocean Grove and Asbury offer great surfing. (We like to check out the waves from bed in the morning!)

In the mornings we like to open the two front doors and let in the ocean breeze while our kids play in the front yard. The porch is the perfect shady spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. Hydrangea bloom along the front of the house and the sound of the ocean can be heard inside and out. A stay at 6 1/2 Heck feels like stepping back into Ocean Grove's early days when families would retreat to the shore away from busy lives.

The home's interior is bright and calm. The first floor has a dining room with antique furniture and a large dining table that seats six or extends to seat eight. The completely renovated kitchen has solid wood cabinets, butcher block counters, an antique farm sink, and open shelving featuring reclaimed wood and subway tile. The clean white refrigerator, gas stove, microwave and dishwasher are brand new. The kitchen retains its lovely vintage built-in pantry. Washer and dryer are off the kitchen and there is a half bath on the first floor. Built in shelves hold rainy-day games and collection of art books. The sitting room and living room adjoin and feel like one large open room. The living room boasts views of the water from its large windows and its door opens out onto the porch. There is wireless internet and a television with cable in the sitting room. The living room is a favorite spot for reading, writing postcards and gazing out at the water after a long day at the beach.

Upstairs are the four bedrooms, all furnished with the home's original antique furniture. Each room has its own large closet, dresser and new air conditioner. Three bedrooms have full beds and one has two twin beds. The master bedroom has ocean views from the bed and another has views from its two large windows. The full bath is located on this floor. New fluffy bath towels, quality linens and down pillows are provided for each room. (Please bring your own beach towels).

We provide four beach badges, beach toys and chairs for use during your stay. Bikes can also be rented from the Ocean Grove Hardware Store on Main Avenue or Brielle Cyclery on the nearby Asbury Park Boardwalk.

About Alfredo Fresnedo (732) 763-2961,alfresnedo@yahoo.com

The owners of 6 1/2 Heck Avenue are Jeanne Rondeau and Chris Beach. Alfredo Fresnedo of Re-Maxx manages the property for us. We live in Brooklyn with our three girls. We fell in love with Ocean Grove while visiting its Giant Flea Market.

Alfredo Fresnedo (732) 763-2961,alfresnedo@yahoo.com purchased this house in 2015

Why Alfredo Fresnedo (732) 763-2961,alfresnedo@yahoo.com chose Shore Region

Ocean Grove cast its spell on us during our first visit. On a whim we decided to look at homes for sale. We visited several properties but knew immediately that 6 ½ Heck was a special place like no other in Ocean Grove. Entering through the magnificent front door felt like we were stepping back in time and experiencing the history of Ocean Grove. The proximity to the ocean, summer cottage feel and quirky rooms enchanted us.

There is nothing better than walking out to the ocean first thing in the morning, or last thing at night. Our family has thoroughly enjoyed discovering Ocean Grove and the surrounding area and we know you will as well. In the short time we’ve owned this home so many wonderful memories have been created. We are so happy to share our home with visitors and we hope 6 1/2 Heck will be a place for memories of your own.

What makes this house unique

We love the home's simple beauty and original details. In the mornings we like to open the two front doors and let in the ocean breeze while our kids play in the front yard. The porch is the perfect shady spot for morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. Hydrangea bloom along the front of the house and the sound of the ocean can be heard inside and out. A stay at 6 1/2 Heck feels like stepping back into Ocean Grove's early days when families would retreat to the shore away from busy lives.

This lovely home is located in the National Historic District of Ocean Grove and is surrounded by nearly a mile of antique Victorian homes. The beach at Ocean Grove was voted one of the 15 best in the world by Fodors. Step back in time and experience the magic of Ocean Grove. A walk around town reveals meticulously maintained Victorian structures and a storybook setting of canvas tents clustered around the majestic antique wooden Great Auditorium. The impressive Auditorium holds worship services, concerts and events and houses a massive antique pipe organ. Ocean Grove has a great lineup of activities throughout the year, including a town-wide flea market, antique car shows and house tours. 6 ½ Heck Avenue is a quick five-minute walk to the lovely shops, bakeries and restaurants on Main Avenue in Ocean Grove. Cheese on Main is not to be missed. The Surf Avenue and Asbury beaches offer great surfing. (We like to check out the waves from bed in the morning!)

A 15-minute stroll down the boardwalk, or through town and over one of the footbridges will bring you to newly revitalized Asbury Park. Asbury is so hip now! It offers great bars, restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, music venues, shopping and independent theaters. There are also lots of activities for kids: swan boats in the lake, surfing lessons, an arcade and vintage pinball museum, miniature golf, Asbury Splash Park, and an amazing beach playground. Our kids love to watch the artists at Hot Sand glassblowing studio and eat at Tullulah’s whenever we are in town.
