Including a beach right on the property.

This expansive contemporary home sits right at the foot of the bridge connecting Longport to this island in Egg Harbor Township. It’s located at the northern tip of the Seaview Harbor subdivision.

Even though it’s clearly contemporary in style on the outside, its interior combines elements of contemporary and classical decor.

Main floor

But it does so in a clearly contemporary fashion. Walk through the front door and this is what you see: A totally open main floor.

Not even the foyer is separate from the rest of this soaring, two-story-high space. Only the raised dining room is set off by a low wall topped with columns and arches.

The kitchen in turn connects the dining room with the breakfast area and rec room. It’s equipped to handle a large gathering, with a separate full-sized Sub-Zero fridge and full-sized Sub-Zero freezer, two sinks, two DishDrawer dishwashers, two cooktops, two ovens and a warming drawer, not to mention two islands and plenty of tile-topped counter and cabinet space. (It only has one microwave, but that’s probably enough.)

Ringing the fenced-in area is a yard with a boat dock and a private beach with views of both Longport on Absecon Island and the ocean in the distance across Great Egg Harbor Inlet.

And between the three-car garage, the carport and the driveway, you can park 19 cars on this lot, which should be more than enough to accommodate your family, your vacationing friends and your dinner guests.

So there’s really no reason that you need to leave this compound once you arrive, except to stock your larders and liquor cabinets. But I imagine you won’t want to dine in every night. Fortunately, there are a number of good eateries in Margate to the north, and even more, including several bayside ones, in Somers Point to the south. And Ocean City is also nearby if the kids want to have fun on the boardwalk.

Otherwise, this bayside Longport contemporary traditional house for sale is a resort vacation unto itself.
