Just Listed at the Shore: West Coast Beachfront House in Stone Harbor
This spectacular oceanside manor would not look out of place at all in Malibu. Yet it still has a Jersey soul.
Stone Harbor is the younger and (just slightly) tonier of the two boroughs that share Seven Mile Island. And like many an upstart, it has something to prove.
After seeing this spectacular beachfront property in the borough’s southern reaches, however, I’d say it has nothing left to prove. If this isn’t “The Shore at Its Best” (Stone Harbor’s motto), I have no idea what is.
Listing agent Jack Vizzard of BHHS Fox & Roach refers to this Stone Harbor beachfront house for sale as “Malibu East,” and it has loads of California cool about it. But you’ll find as you look at the photos that this house still has a very Jersey soul.
The beachfront facade makes it clear that this house combines both traditional and modern design cues. It offers ocean views from all three of its levels, plus a bonus: a roof deck where you can view the sunsets.
Of course, like most newer Shore houses, this one is built upside down, with the main floor on the top. Here you will find a striking great room with a soaring vaulted ceiling.
The kitchen flows seamlessly from the great room, and the space even has an outdoor component in the form of a covered deck. Custom-made 13-foot-high sliding doors made in Germany allow the outdoor and indoor spaces to become one.
The covered deck extends across the main floor as an open-air balcony. Behind the great room you will find the primary suite and the steps to the roof deck.
You’ll also find the snazziest powder room you will ever lay eyes on. Both its blue wall tile and the vanity with its unique pendant water faucet were imported from Italy. Chances are you will wind up prying your visiting friends and guests out of it.
One floor down, you’ll find a comfortable den and four bedrooms, one of which is configured to sleep an entire family of four.
You’ll also find three full bathrooms and another powder room.
Finally, on the ground floor, you will find a three-car garage, plenty of storage space and an indoor-outdoor entertaining space. Outside, a dramatic waterfall feeds the swimming pool, and an attractively landscaped large yard surrounds it. Facing the waterfall and pool is a bar and lounge that can be closed off with sliding glass doors for use in all seasons.
(And speaking of four seasons, there’s a fireplace on the roof deck too.)
This house also comes with views to die for: you can see all the way north to Atlantic City and south to the tip of Stone Harbor from its outdoor spaces.
A New York Times profile of the community described Stone Harbor as a place of “gleaming McMansions and elegant shops.” The writer might have revised their assessment of the houses had they seen this truly unique Stone Harbor beachfront house for sale.
