***MARGATE LISTING ALERT***6BR 3BA***BEACH BLOCK CUL DE SAC***DIRECT OCEAN VIEWS***OWNED BY SAME FAMILY FOR 58 YEARS!***NEW ROOF***NEW HVAC***50x115 LOT***TAXES $20,805*** A DIAMOND ON DOLPHIN~If you’re tired of the same cookie-cutter, uninspired, black-and-white “open living space” Margate McMansion that’s been popping up all over the island and will be dated and out of style in three years, why not go with a classic stalwart that has withstood the test of time, tide and the elements for over 60 years? This sturdy brick beauty occupies the LAST available oversized single lot on the ONLY true beach block cul-de-sac on all of Absecon Island in what has been recently transformed into the circle of millionaires. This elegant mid-century marvel has been lovingly enjoyed and maintained by the same family for the past 58 years, and boasts 6 bedrooms, 3 full baths, plus a laundry room shower right off the back door for easy clean-up after the beach, which is literally just steps away. Features of this iconic beach house include new roof, new HVAC, new garage doors, recently remodeled kitchen, new windows and paint throughout, walk-in attic with incredible storage capacity, and a resurfaced balcony deck with new sliders to the balcony from the massive master suite for your magnificent direct ocean views. The formal dining room and massive living room provide wonderful flow for parties and entertaining. Many large parties and holiday celebrations have been hosted at the home by the owners over the past half century, including a beautiful wedding reception for 50 guests held in the secluded parklike backyard surrounded by the mature landscaping. Unheard of beach block off-street parking for up to six cars completes the package. Located half a block from the Margate Library, Pavilion, playground and park, you can walk to EVERYTHING! Beach, bars, restaurants, shopping, Casel’s, Dino’s, banks, post office: you’ll be in the true heart of Margate, hidden from view and free of any through-traffic. Options for buyer: enjoy it as it stands, or if you really want that extra 2,000 sq. ft. of living space, save the hassle and unnecessary expense of demo/rebuild and simply lift the house on the existing non-conforming footprint. That way you keep all the classic architecture and coveted mid-century design while allowing you the freedom to create an entire additional vast first floor living space tailored to your own needs and imagination. With the garage spaces (and additional storage) moved to ground level (remember: existing Margate zoning laws allow 2.5 full stories above the ground floor!), you could convert the existing detached oversized garage into anything you’d like: in-law suite, office, pool house, flex space, rec room, entertainment oasis … the sky’s the limit! Why knock down and spend when you can lift and save?! Additionally, a lift would provide even better ocean views! The possibilities are endless! Act NOW for this prime and unique pie
