Property Description

Welcome home! We are proud to offer an exceedingly rare opportunity to own an immaculate five bedroom, 4.5 bath, three story home which has been lovingly restored to become a perfect blend of “old Ocean City” but with the cleanliness and aesthetics of a brand new home, even having a super rare side yard for entertaining and relaxing with the family/friends. Opportunities abound for this 3-properties-in-one house with two street level efficiency apartments below the main living area on floors 2 and 3. Possible uses include maintaining it as a single family home, renting all or some of the three units, or opening a bed and breakfast. Enjoy a 200 foot stroll to the HEART of the OCMD boardwalk, or a couple more steps to the ocean. Parking, which is in short supply in downtown OCMD is not a problem either, with parking for up to FOUR cars in available spots on both side of the house. The efficiency apartments,which were used by current owners as getaway spots for their kids or for guests, have been restored entirely, with everything new from cinderblock foundation on in, and were outfitted with two independent Mistubishi split systems, new doors, new kitchens, stainless fasteners holding everything in place, and mass loaded rubber and Rockwool soundproofing insulation encapsulating the units for deadening noise from upstairs and outside activity. Upstairs, painstaking care was taken to completely restore all original, locally milled 1930s Douglas fir flooring to its original glory. Every kitchen appliance was replaced with stainless steel units tray ceilings were installed with Philips Hue ecosystem lights, four new high-end ceiling fans, brand new furniture, and updated colors throughout. Both bathrooms on the third floor were completely renovated with one containing interesting pebble stone shower features. Aside from the retrofitted HVAC on first floor, the system on floors 2 and 3 are also brand new, promising years of trouble free heating/cooling. But the fun doesn’t end on the inside. Outside, new stucco and a roof were recently installed. There is a fenced half lot with both grass and a beach/sand area for playtime and buffer area that prevents one from feeling “crowded” as is the case with properties downtown. A pergola with wifi lighting controls allows for socializing at night and elicits oohs and aahs from passerby walkers. Both sides are fenced to keep our furry friends and kids where they should stay,with an opportunity in the back of the property to create a “walk through access” corridor between the two sides of the house with the owner owned property between the existing rear fence and the neighboring rear property. The home boasts a large enclosed area under the back deck that can be used for storage or the possibility for additional living space. There are three elevated porches, two of them exceptionally large, for gatherings, sunbathing, or just watching the boardwalk. There are not many more things more relaxing than sitting out in the breeze, smelling suntan lotion and boardwalk food, while watching the action on the boardwalk and the breaking waves. Speaking of views, the upstairs deck has perfect views of the ocean and all the vacationers walking the boardwalk. After a long day at the beach, come home to an outdoor hot/cold shower under the porch. There is also some unique protection from storms as well, given the blockage from winds on all four sides, with special blockage from the condo building across the street from winds coming out of the directional ranges SW, S, and SE. And one of the best things about this home being a few feet from the ocean is that this house is you will save on insurance premiums, homeowners insurance costs, no condo fees, or large upkeep costs because almost everything has been replaced. Give me a call today to schedule a visit to see this remarkable and unique property!
