On the Market at the Shore: Modern Condo Close to the Beach in Margate
Let's face it: You're not going to find a great beach block house for much under $1 million. But this bright condo for sale right across the street comes awfully close.
Beach block houses and condos at the Jersey Shore don’t come cheap. Unless you’re willing to settle for an older unrenovated house or are willing to go down a notch or two on the status scale, expect to shell out seven figures for a property close to the beach.
But what if we told you you could buy a very attractive modern condo for sale right across the street from a very short beach block for less than $500K?
We have your attention now, don’t we?
Okay, the street you have to cross is Atlantic Avenue in Ventnor, a main thoroughfare. But there are crosswalks one short block in either direction from your building, and the drivers will stop when you enter them. (At least that’s what New Jersey state law says they should do.) Besides, the bulk of the traffic’s one block behind you on Ventnor Avenue anyway.
But between Ventnor Avenue and the beach, you’re sitting pretty as far as convenience is concerned. You won’t need to hunt for a parking space when you want to hit the beach or head to one of Margate’s many fine restaurants and shops.
And you will be spending your days at the Shore in a bright, sun-splashed condo with loads of contemporary style.
Its open main living space features a tile floor, a gas fireplace and French doors that open onto your wraparound deck.
From that deck you can look straight down Delavan Avenue and see the ocean.
It has a contemporary styled kitchen with modern appliances.
And its master bedroom and bath are spacious and nicely outfitted. It also has its own private deck with ocean views.
If you don’t feel like hitting the beach or heading over to the main drag, you can relax around the community pool instead. The building also has a clubhouse.
Is this close enough to what you want? At this price, we’d definitely say “Yes.”
