Classic Jersey Shore houses don’t get much more classic than this beauty at 12 S. Jerome Ave., Margate, N.J. 08204. But if you like what newer Shore houses offer, you will be equally pleased to see what’s inside. | South Jersey Shore Regional MLS images via Soleil Sotheby’s International Realty

If you like those classic Jersey Shore houses of years gone by but want the flexibility of a modern open layout as well as up-to-date amenities, then this renovated Margate foursquare house for sale has exactly what you want.

On the outside, it’s a classic American foursquare house in picture-perfect condition.

And you will find a bonus room off the corridor leading past the laundry and full bath to the backyard. You could, as the current owner does, use this as a home office; that, in turn, means you could live at the Shore year-round if you wish. (The practicality of this move depends on what your employer plans to require now that COVID restrictions are being lifted and where your office is located.)

And this house is conveniently located: it sits on the south side of the street, a block and a half from the beach and a half block off Margate’s main drag, Ventnor Avenue. There’s an Italian restaurant at the end of your block. Turn right, head about seven blocks north, and you will be in downtown Margate, where you will find both basic services, including a supermarket, and several great eateries.

Turn left, head about a block to the south, and you will arrive at the real estate agency that’s marketing this renovated Margate foursquare house for sale.

And at the other end of your block, a right turn and a walk of about 13 blocks south on Atlantic Avenue will take you to Lucy the elephant, Margate’s most famous landmark.

Now how convenient is that?
