Located just three houses from the sand, the large townhouse at 5044 Asbury Ave. in Ocean City’s chill Southend has plenty of room for a large group of people to drop their bags and enjoy the island.
The home has four bedrooms, a living room with a cathedral ceiling, an elevated dining area and kitchen, two full bathrooms, and a powder room, and four decks outside.
Ocean City, Maryland is a popular East Coast vacation destination known for its beautiful beaches and 2.5-mile-long boardwalk lined with hundreds of shops, restaurants, and attractions. Asbury Avenue and Ninth Street form an award-winning central business district, and the area around Third Street on Bay Avenue is known as a watersports hub.
On this 8-mile-long island, there are 10 unique neighbourhoods, so being near the water isn’t the only indicator of a good location. Many people visit The Gardens because of its reputation for a relaxed pace of life, its expansive beaches, and its winding, pedestrian-friendly streets. A large number of Riviera homes are Mediterranean in design, and many are situated on inland lagoons, making it a boater’s paradise. The Central area is where you want to be if you like the hustle and bustle of the downtown and boardwalk, while the Southend is more residential and compact. Many of the island’s historic homes can be found in the Northend, while Merion Park, in the south, is home to wetlands, wildlife, and breathtaking sunset vistas. Stunning sunsets over the bay and wetlands can be seen from Merion Park, while the Goldcoast is home to some of the island’s finest beachfront properties.
The Southend area, which encompasses the streets 34th through 59th, is ideal for getting away from it all because it is so much smaller than the rest of the island.
In the many mom-and-pop stores and along the bustling 34th Street business district, you can find anything you need for a relaxing beach getaway.
No need to trek through downtown Ocean City to get to the Garden State Parkway; all the attractions that make Ocean City America’s Greatest Family Resort are within a mile or two on foot or bike.
The right half of a duplex, this house has a hardscaped front yard of concrete and paver stones, softened by shrubs in raised, mulched beds.
Debbie Tweed, the listing agent, described a garden with lavender and butterfly bushes as a welcome sight as you ascended the front steps.
After a day of fun in the sand and surf, retire to the house’s large, covered front porch, accessible via wooden steps.
The 10-foot-high threshold of the front door features a large window that lets in natural light both in the morning and the afternoon. The elevated dining area and kitchen beyond add an air of sophistication to the great room while maintaining its airy, spacious feel.
One wall is dominated by a gas fireplace with a wood mantel and windows, while the other offers ample room for a large sectional sofa.
The dining area, located three steps up, has a chandelier, large windows, and plenty of room for a table to seat everyone. On the other side of the granite countertops that form the perimeter of the kitchen, there is a peninsula with additional seating.
