***ATTENTION REALTORS…Please do NOT call looking for a listing. We do not want to list the house at this time. Thank you for your cooperation***
This meticulously maintained home has been owned by the same family since approximately 1984. It has enjoyed almost 35 years of great family times and lifelong memories. It has been used predominantly as a summer home, but is a year round house if desired. There is central air conditioning / forced hot air heat (new in 2015). This home has been recently updated in 2017 inside and has 3 Bedrooms with large closet space, 2 Full baths plus an outdoor shower. The outdoor shower is always such a nice way to finish up the day at the beach, showering and looking up at the sky.
The home features an open light and bright floor plan, vaulted ceilings with original wood beams, plantation slider shutters, stainless appliances, built in convection microwave, dishwasher, natural gas cooktop, washer / dryer, rolling hardwood island, seating for a large family, white quartz countertops and a large kitchen with sliding serving window to enjoy dinners outside under the canopy on the large carpeted deck. Part of the renovation in 2017 was new water proof laminate vinyl wood grain light gray flooring which is perfect for the beach environment. It is easy to clean and super durable. New vinyl maintenance free privacy fencing was added in 2018. There is also a clothes line on the side of the house to hang your towels or if you simply enjoy the natural scent of line-dry-clothes. The large shed in the rear of the house provides excellent storage space for beach chairs, fishing poles, tubes and boogie boards. There is even a small flower garden as well as a separate vegetable garden. The grand children always love coming back from the beach and stealing one of Nanna’s cherry tomatoes!
Seacrest Beach is a private family beach club with a close knit community that is hard to beat on the Jersey Shore. Year after year, the same families come to enjoy the beautiful beach, the longtime friends and laid back atmosphere of the Seacrest Beach lifestyle. You can stand on the shoreline and look north and south to see the very crowded surrounding beaches, but not Seacrest beach. Only members with a name engraved flag are allowed to use the beach and beach shower. Year after year, the same core of lifeguards do a great job keeping the swimmers safe and watching over the beach. A few times a day, ice cream is sold from Seacrest’s private freezer near the dunes. It is truly an enjoyable beach day for all ages!
Because this home is part of the private Seacrest Beach Club, if you the owner ever wanted to raise this house or build new and build a large 3 story house, the owner would need “air rights”. The cost of these air rights are currently in the $50,000-$60-000 range. The “air rights” for this home at 37 Kittiwake have been paid and are included in the sale.
