The Jersey Shore community of Ocean Grove, NJ was founded in 1869 as a Methodist camp meeting ground, earning itself the moniker, "Queen of Religious Resorts." It remains a thriving seaside destination, with beautiful Victorian architecture, easy access to Sandy Hook, and Atlantic City, and within walking distance of Asbury Park, where you can enjoy the boardwalk, restaurants and live music venues. Ocean Grove is very family-friendly, and home to a large LGBTQ community. And, most importantly, there's a beach.
If any of that sounds appealing to you, consider this gorgeous three-bedroom, three-bath Victorian at 97 Asbury Ave., now on the market for $629,000. The house is technically in Ocean Grove proper, but is located just a stone's throw from Asbury Park. It's also a legal two-family home, should you want to rent it out.
The house has a large light-filled living room on the first floor.
There's a dining room located just off the living room.
The kitchen has been recently updated.
There's a spacious bedroom on the first level.
And a full bath, painted a deep red.
Upstairs, there's a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.
There's also a small guest room.
And another full bath with a tub and some cheerful sea green paint.
The second level also boasts a family room with an attached eat-in kitchen.
And on the third level, there's an attic room that can serve as a bedroom or office space.
Other highlights include a full basement, a small patio, and a wraparound porch.
Ocean Grove is about a one-and-a-half hour drive from both New York City and Philadelphia. New Jersey Transit from New York Penn Station to Asbury Park takes just under two hours.
