When people think of real estate, they think of "location," but when people think of home, they think "neighborhood" and Belmont Shore has both. Its alluring oceanside location and inviting neighborhood boasts strong real estate values, a thriving business community, specialty shops and salons, a variety of dining choices and seemingly limitless options for enjoying the beach and water.
PRICE IMPROVED BY $160,000! Brilliant use of stucco and sleek Absolute Black granite complement the contemporary architecture of this stunning re-built home in the heart of Belmont Shore, one of the city’s most coveted areas. Open spaces, volume ceilings and high-end touches define the interior of this modern beachside residence. House was originally built in 1950 and completely rebuilt in 1992/1993.
The spacious living room sports a marble and granite covered fireplace with 3 black marble mantlets - a remarkable piece of art unto itself. The striking formal dining room will comfortably seat larger gatherings, while the breakfast area is ideal for day-to-day living. The exceptional kitchen is equipped with high-end appliances, lustrous lacquered cabinetry and Luna Pearl granite counter tops. The upper level master suite has room to roam from the relaxing retreat and fireplace to the magnificent 5-star bath with over-sized jetted Kohler bathtub, glass ceiling and large separate shower. Also on the 2nd floor are 2 additional and nicely appointed bedrooms and a 2nd full bath.
