Bayfront Villa ... Avalon Style

5024 Ocean Drive Avalon NJ

Located on Avalon’s open bay, yet just one block to private high dune beaches, this 7,697 SF exquisite waterfront residence feels like a Mediterranean resort. Graced by soaring ceilings and wall-to-wall windows and sliders, this setting is a haven for gazing at sunsets and soaking up the wide open bay views from multiple vantage points within the home along with 7 exterior decks. As you enter the home thru the specialty designed walnut door, your breath is taken away by the sensational views of the bay. The grand two-story entryway with a sweeping Rob Hoffman floating staircase draws you into a voluminous open layout made for bayside entertaining. The first floor family room, theater room and "Ritz-Carlton bar" open to an expansive 1,400 SF Ipe deck overlooking the 50'x25' salt water pool and hot tub wrapped by a 90'x20' travertine pool deck. A dock easily accommodates a 55’+ boat plus jet skis, with a stationary pier over the canal. The two-story great room, with a wall of glass opening to the second floor expansive rear Ipe deck, is the dramatic focal point of the main level, accompanied by an elegant dining room and tremendous chef's kitchen, all overlooking Avalon’s bay. No detail has been overlooked in this kitchen, designed by Connie Kitchens with quality cabinetry complemented by Italian granite by Marble Crafters. Every convenience has been considered, with Dacor Double Ovens, warming drawer, two dishwashers, Subzero refrigerator and refrigeration drawers, ice maker, wine refrigerator, and more. The divine 1,400 SF master suite presents lighted tray ceilings, Brazilian Cherry flooring, Venetian plaster, gas fireplace with limestone mantle, massive windows, a terrace overlooking the water, access to the roof top bay view deck and an opulent marble ensuite bath with oversized Jacuzzi tub and separate glass steam shower. A separate office and bayside gym complete this floor. Each of the four ensuites has a spectacular bath. Walter Zangger tile and marble is complemented by custom cabinetry, specialty fixtures, and lighting. The home is heated and air conditioned with seven separate systems. A Lutron lighting system and Niles sound system create the ideal environment for entertaining. A Concord elevator with brass, cherry and travertine finishes conveniently transports you from floor to floor, and the attached three-car garage is large enough for all of your bay and beach toys, along with your cars! This one-of-a-kind home is truly resort style living at the shore.
