Located in the quiet north end neighborhood of 13th Street sits this amazing piece of Avalon’s history, one of the “twin sisters”, and one of two of the tallest remaining residences left in Avalon. This unique one of a kind home has been lovingly restored and updated. While maintaining the charm and character of “yester-year” this home has the modern appointments and amenities your family looks for today.

The home has been expanded to a 6 or 7 bedroom home depending on how you chose to use the space all with hardwood flooring and built ins. The ocean and beach is just 12 homes away and can be seen from a deck off the master bedroom as well as the third floor bunk room. The best view in the house is from the easily accessed widows peek deck. Star gazing has never been this good. Fireworks seem like they are exploding overhead. The skyline and night lights of Atlantic City are your entertainment. Watch the sunrise and sunset; the waves roll onto shore all from the best seat in the house, your private deck high above Avalon. The convenience of town is just a short stroll away and Avalon’s largest recreation fields and playground with tennis and basketball is one block away. If fishing is your past time, join the rest of the fisherman at the inlet just a short bike ride to the 8th street jetty. What can be better than an afternoon on the front porch with a good book and beverage of choice in your favorite rocker? Or board games with the family on the front porch as you say HI to the many neighbors walking by. This home has been lovingly maintained and enjoyed by many families over the course of time. Summer times of dreams have come true here. Make it your family’s destination and dream maker today. Call listing agent for more details and an appointment to make this home your own.
