On the Market: Oceanside Cottage in Stone Harbor
It's picture-postcard pretty and storybook cute, and it's right on the beach. And it can be yours for just $7.95 million. (Yes, you read that right.)
Isn’t this just about the cutest beach house for sale you’ve ever seen?
I’ll bet that it brings back memories of Shore summers past for many of you reading this.
Which it should, for it was built in 1954 right next to the beach near the southern end of Seven Mile Island.
Big picture windows flood the main living-dining area with light. This space has an exposed-beam vaulted ceiling and a balcony overlook.
Two of its three bedrooms also have vaulted ceilings.
And it has a bright modern kitchen…
…not to mention a second-floor deck with a nice view of the ocean.
All this can be yours for only $7.95 million.
Have you gotten back up off the floor yet? Okay, here’s why this little cottage comes with such a big price tag.
The view you see from the deck above tells only part of the story. This last house before the ocean is located across 111th Street from “Villa Marie,” the Immaculate Heart of Mary Convent.
The convent is set back 270 feet from the ocean end of the dunes, which extend all the way from this point to the nearby south end of the island. And behind the convent is a bird sanctuary.
This means that you enjoy an unobstructed 270-degree view of the ocean, beach and dunes. Not even power lines intrude upon it. (And you will enjoy a beach that almost feels private thanks to the absence of lots of neighbors.)
People kill for views like this. All you have to do is write a big check. I guarantee you someone will.
THE FINE PRINT
SQUARE FEET: Not available
SALE PRICE: $7,950,000. Since square footage isn’t given, we can’t say what the price per square foot would be on this house for sale, but based on the pictures, we’re sure it’s in the four figures. Probably even the high four figures.
