Life is Better on the Bay
There’s never been a better time to invest in bayside living. From April 2018 to April 2019, 27 bayfront properties sold in Avalon compared to 25 during the same time period the previous year. And on average, they spent 18% less time on the market and sold for an amazing 40% more.
Of course, the benefits of the bayside go well beyond its investment potential. Living near the water can be extremely beneficial for your health, reducing stress levels, encouraging more physical activity, and providing you with endless access to fresh, open air. And in Avalon in particular, bayfront living offers plenty of opportunities for entertainment, including not just beach days but community events, world class shopping and restaurants, and no shortage of family-friendly recreation spots.
If waking up to the bay every single day sounds like something that you could get used to, check out these two spectacular Avalon Bayfront properties, one that went under contract within 72 hours of being listed!
4819 Fourth Avenue
Avalon, NJ $5.75M – ACTIVE MLS# 187819
Just one look at 4819 Fourth Avenue and you’ll see that this stunning home speaks for itself. With five bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and more than 3,200 square feet of sun-drenched living space, this French carriage style property has everything that your family needs to relax, play, and enjoy the luxuries of bayfront life.
4819 Fourth Avenue is a rare and exclusive find in Avalon’s prestigious bayfront lagoon. Located on a pie shaped lot at the southernmost tip of Fourth Avenue, 4819 Fourth Avenue offers 214 feet of bayfront and is one of only 17 properties on the bay in Avalon that stretches for at least 18,000 square feet. Any family lucky enough to call this property home will be welcomed to breathtaking panoramic views of the bay, wetlands, and Avalon sunsets, and with a price tag that’s almost $1,000,000 less than similarly located homes, it’s a steal for what you get.
Wide open spaces greet you at every turn, with vaulted ceilings in the great room and massive windows letting in tons of natural light and fresh bay air. Head into the galley kitchen, where you’ll find classic white cabinets and countertops and all the necessary appliances for creating a homecooked gourmet meal.
4819 Fourth Avenue boasts five spacious bedrooms and three full bathrooms, with each bedroom having private access to the outdoor space. It’s like having your own personal resort all to yourself, with more than enough room for everyone to stretch out. The interior could use a little bit of updating, but it is fully functional and ready to take on any of your own design preferences.
It’s the exterior of 4819 Fourth Avenue that makes it truly exceptional. Multiple large decks, luscious greenery, and a vacation-worthy pool all await, their beauty only matched by the view of the bay stretching all the way to the horizon. Spend your mornings enjoying coffee on the upper deck, your afternoons lazing on lounge chairs by the pool, and your evenings watching the sun set low over the bay. Even with Avalon’s downtown right at your fingertips you may never want to leave.
