A home with this kind of character, in such great condition is truly rare. When it comes with a panoramic view of Sandy Hook Bay beyond, it's exceptional. Whether it's the 9' ceilings, the gorgeous pocket doors, the substantial wood trim & period fireplace or the slate & glass tile kitchen floor, you'll know you've discovered something unique & wonderful. High on the hill looking out to the ocean, the bay & beyond, sits this 5 bedroom, 3 bath home that offers a stylish mix of old world and contemporary aesthetics. The Victorian character of its past is evident in the rich moldings, 8' solid wood doors, antique hardware, claw foot bathtubs, porcelain kitchen sink, bedroom built-ins & stained glass windows. A more modern design sensibility is apparent in the materials & fixtures such as the slate & glass tile flooring of the kitchen & 1st floor bath, the Dacor 6-burner dual-fuel range, the iridescent glass tile floor of the 2nd floor bath and the 3rd floor bath's copper sink. Perhaps best of all, the extensive renovation which included new Pella windows, updated electric, great appliances and more, means you can move right in. The large yard offers a large level space for playing or gardening. And the large wraparound deck off the living room allows for easy indoor/outdoor entertaining with views of the water and NYC in the distance. A perfect weekend getaway or year round residence. Great schools (Navesink Elementary, Bayshore Middle, Middletown South High School). Walk to the ocean, riverfront, NYC high-speed ferry, and to some of the best-rated restaurants in New Jersey (just check Zagat!)
