For Sale: 161 39th, Avalon, NJ 08202 | MLS# 203111

The outrageously gorgeous, Dave Bennett designed and Winfield Developers built home sits on an oversized, 60 x 110 lot just six homes removed from the beach.  One of the more architecturally unique and visually stunning homes on the island, this very special property offers both uniquely great interior spaces and tons of private and shaded exterior spaces.  The exterior is a beautiful combination of double dipped, cedar siding, brick and azek accents, and a maintenance free grand manor roof.  Inside, wide planked hickory floors line the entire house save for the bathrooms.  A large and inviting entrance foyer is trimmed with wainscoting and winds around to three first floor bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, built in beds and custom, pull out trundles.  The rear of the first floor is dedicated to a large laundry room and a massive family room featuring a wet bar with an accordion window that opens up to a counter with seating on the rear covered deck.  An accordion door walks out to a large covered porch outfit with a sectional sofa.  Walk down three steps and you are in a private backyard outfit with travertine pavers and an expansive pool built under the islands old pool rules (6’ setbacks instead of 9’ today).  A storage cabana is large enough to store all your bikes and beach chairs, and has a Sunbrite TV attached to the side that is enclosed by shutters.  Back inside, the second floor great room is massive and offers a number of very special places to entertain.  The chefs kitchen features high end appliances, honed quartzite tops, a large center island with seating for the entire family, and distributed audio.  The cozy living room is centered on a brick fire place and offers a gentlmens bar, coffered ceiling, wainscoting, and access through an accordion door to the covered second floor deck.  This space is the perfect place to relax after a great meal and watch the sky change with the sunset.  A show-stopping dining area features a two story vault, a beautiful shiplap accent wall and a striking light fixture.  The rear of the second floor features a large, private deck currently used for dining, a powder room, and an en-suite bedroom.  The entire third floor is dedicated to the owners suite, with a large office and laundry room on the rear and the bedroom on the street side.  The master bedroom is lined with trim and offers the best view in the entire house, both from inside the bedroom and from the third story, private deck.  A large master bathroom and walk-in closet complete this spacious suite.  Other special features include Sonos audio throughout, plantation shutters throughout, Ipe decking and cable railing on all of the exterior decks, herringbone brick driveway and walkways, and a shaft already installed for an elevator (the elevator is not installed, rather the space is used for closets).  Perhaps best of all, this extremely sought after location leaves you six homes from one of the best beaches in town, yet a short stroll into Avalon’s shopping and restaurant district.  Don’t miss your opportunity own this uniquely beautiful home – schedule your showing today.
