Elegant, stylish, enjoyable, and tranquil bayside contemporary “beach home” in excellent condition with a diverse selection of amenities and local activities. Endowed with 5 bedrooms and two full baths (for beach guests, working from home office space, or a growing family), this attractive home is situated just 500 feet from an often passed over beach overlooking New York City. Naturally lit during the day with an abundance of windows and skylights, and well ventilated with ceiling fans and a near constant bay breeze during the summer blends the outdoors with the inside. The billiard room with liquor bar, as well as the stamped concrete patio by the pool welcomes friends and family for cookouts and beach parties (especially for the unofficial fireworks on the beach on the 4th of July!). Local fishing and crabbing spots, the Henry Hudson Trail for biking and running, and area parks can keep you busy. A small garden in the side of the house compliments the abundance of flowers and vegetation on the large corner lot. In the winter, the smell and warmth from the cozy wood burning stove and the natural wood accents completes the metamorphosis into a “ski lodge” feel, making this a true home for all seasons. With zonal heating and AC, and fully owned solar panels, and recently upgraded tankless combi boiler the costs and comforts can be scaled for the needs. Dock your boat at the local marina (1 minute drive) or lower it via a trailer into the bay. 18 minute drive from Sandy Hook Beach. Just a 5 minute drive to the ferry (or 10 minute drive to the train station) can offer NYC commutes.
Of note: Taxes are very low for NJ. The home is protected from flooding by the coastal protection built by the Army Corp of Engineers. No damage from hurricane Sandy (or any other storm) since it was built. Flood insurance is grandfathered in at a lower rate.
