My husband and I met in Hermosa Beach, California in the early 90's and lived there until 1998 before moving to Seattle, Washington. I'm from Reno, Nevada where we were married and I grew up on the north shore of Lake Tahoe in Tyrolean Village. My husband is from New Jersey and he grew up in Monmouth County. We have three children, our two older kids were born in California, one in Newport and one in Torrance and our youngest was born in Kirkland, Washington. We moved to northern New Jersey in 2001, we lived in Madison for a short period then moved to Chatham where we've lived since 2002.
We bought this house in 2007. We had looked at this house in 2005 and were intent on buying it but decided to buy the other house we own, listing 134026. At the time this house needed a lot of work and the other house was more attractive. However, this house stayed on the market and we got a great deal in 2007, this house is great and we love the street, it’s one of the best if not the best at the Northend of town. We've had a lot of great times in this house, it’s very cozy and comfortable.
This house is the perfect size for a small to medium size family. The house was gut renovated down to the studs immediately after we purchased it and we maintained a lot of the old charm in the renovation. It has a great open layout, everything you need is right there. It has a very relaxing and comfortable environment, plus the large front porch provides a great meeting place for the family. During the days and nights we're down the shore, we spend a lot of time sitting on the porch, talking, reading and relaxing there The house has a really nice and large outside shower, a small rear deck and side yard for grilling. It's in a great location, everything you need is a short walk or bike ride and the beach is very close and the neighbors are really nice. If you want to leave the island for any reason for a day to play golf or go to dinner in AC, Cape May, Somers Point or Long Port, it's very easy from the Long Port Bridge at the north end or the 9th Street Causeway.
