Barnegat Light is one of the few places along the Jersey Shore left unspoiled, with expansive windswept dunes and scenic greenery against a sparkling Atlantic backdrop. Wide beaches, natural dunes and no storm damage. Barnegat Light is in great shape
The 3rd Floor main living Area showcases panoramic views of the ocean and dunes. This living area is open to the Gourmet Kitchen and adjacent dining area with walkout to the main deck. The main deck gives access to the rooftop deck for sunbathing or dining.
The back portion of the 3rd floor houses bedroom #1. The roomy Master Suite with King bed & vaulted ceiling has two small balconies and it's own private bath with a spa style shower.

This suite has it's own private bath (shower/tub).
Bedrooms 3 and 4 on the 2nd Floor may be set up as a suite, or separated for privacy by closing the french pocket doors. These rooms provide a quiet, private area 'away' for a young family with a baby or small children. There is one entrance to both of these bedrooms.

On a side note: This house offers extensive sound-proofing between floors and interior walls which lends itself well to large or extended families. Please keep in mind this house is very versatile and could be set up as a private, sophisticated 4-bedroom Bed & Breakfast, (only you will have to cook your own breakfast). This should not be a problem with a gourmet kitchen...GE Monogram gas cook-top, double oven (with convection option), dishwasher and Jennair French 3-door refrigerator.
The Brazilian Tigerwood floors join together the kitchen/dining areas, and the Jennair 48' gas grill is just steps away on the oceanfront deck. If weather permits, the roof top deck presents a world class dining experience for up to 12,15 people Most importantly the overall design combines all of these features to give you a beautiful, user-friendly vacation home.
The house sits on one of the highest areas of Long Beach Island. From the rooftop deck you'll be stunned by the 360 degree views including Old Barney ~ our lighthouse, the inlet area, maritime forest, expansive ocean front views from horizon to horizon and all the way around to the bay area and commercial fishing fleet in the distance & sunsets in the western sky.
This Oceanfront Property is set well back from the waters edge overlooking a small maritime forest, to the dunes beyond ~ where a boardwalk path leads to the Beach and the sparkling water waiting for you.
Keywords: Ocean Front House
Barnegat Light is a unique ocean front area with natural unobstructed dunes and open beaches. The homes are set back off the beach front which has allowed mother nature to create a natural maritime environment. The inlet and natural ocean currents combine to create a varied and rich environment for both land and sea creatures. In early season some of our beach area is roped off to protect nesting areas for endangered shore birds.
Our beach area is expansive and never crowded with lifeguard stands set ever 200 yards or so along the beach. No problem with high tide forcing people off the beach or trying to find a spot of sand to fit your family.
We have excellent surf fishing caused by the schools of small bait fish accumulating around the sand bars. The rock jetty by the inlet provides another excellent fishing location. The whole area is excellent for shell hunting. The ocean and wave conditions will vary as you walk along the ocean front area due to the jetty currents and sand bars. The swimming is safe and conditions closely watched by the BL life guards. We also have a township bay beach swimming area. If you have an extended family you will find an area that will fit all members from 4' shallow pools to crashing waves out beyond the sand bars.
We have three levels of living area which is not common to our area. We are at a high enough ground elevation to allow the three levels within the zoning parameters. The net result is we have more living space plus our roof top deck sets above most everything around us. The 360* views are unobstructed and beautiful. The house is very solidly constructed with additional structural support throughout . The house is very comfortable and stable even in the worst of mid-winter weather. Most folks find the house to be 'beautiful' ~ we hear it over and over again. We also usually get an 'Oh, WoW' when folks first step into the third floor and look out towards the ocean front.
The location is unique with the natural setting. Most folks that vacation here are looking for our unique natural location, along with the expected Jersey shore white sandy beaches and beautiful ocean.
Negatives [by owner]
We do not have an elevator .... We have three levels not wheelchair accessible. A person may spend a very comfortable and enjoyable week up on the third level [kitchen, dining, bathrooms, master bedroom, tv, and fantastic views from living room or deck area] but getting from ground level to third floor will require help for folks that are wheelchair restricted.
Distance to the beach..... The area is beautiful and open but you will have to walk a boarded path to the dune tops [2/3 minutes] and then down to the waters edge and guarded beach area. All according to which way you decide to go but another 3/4 minutes to the waters edge. We supply beach wagons and carts if needed to carry beach stuff or little people. The township will supply at no cost [contact and reserve preseason] beach wheel chairs which seem to work well for wheel chair restricted folks.
Had a wonderful time at the shore house in Barnegat Light. The accommodations were great. The views from the upper level was gorgeous and the sun rise and sun sets were breathtaking. We climbed to the top of the Barnegat lighthouse, spent time on the beach, flew kites, went on a sunset sail, and fishing excursion. The grandkids (teenagers) loved it. We also had bikes, went to the waterpark, and the girls found a few shops to buy souvenirs. If you don't want to spend all your time in the kitchen there are plenty of places to eat or get take out. If you want a treat, don't miss Poppy's ice cream shop.
Cousins, brothers and grown children came from California, North Carolina and Maine for a week of reminiscing, family banter and deciding where we go from here. Bluefish on the grill was a treat, the wide oceanfront beach oh-so-inviting, and the beach sculpture an unexpected delight! And, to top it off, the house could not have been more comfortable.
Three families gathered with our teenage children and parents. It was so special to be at this house. The views are unbelievable gorgeous. We could only hear the ocean and the birds. The top deck at sunrise and sunset is spectacular. The overall location at the dunes was incredible. We very much want to come back. The Howes are very gracious to share their beautiful home and very lovely to communicate with. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
We have a large family, grandparents to young children and an infant. The house was great and easily accommodated all of us. We spent evenings watching the sunset from the roof deck. Most mornings I woke up early and had coffe on the main deck while watching the sun rise. We love the beach at the far end of the island! And the soundproofing in the house made is easy for all of us to get enough sleep while sharing space with young children and an infant.
We spent the end of September at this house and it was a perfect vacation. The pictures here do show how spacious and gorgeous the house is, but it is hard to really catch the beauty of the area itself, without being down there. We were able to see the sunrise AND sunset from the upper deck and each time it was amazing beyond words.
Everything that was provided in the house was exactly what you would need - either for the beach or just to enjoy the home itself. We had a fairly large group of people and we were able to cook all of our meals there, having as good a time preparing them as we did eating together.
We are already trying to put together when we can go here next year.
Everything about this house is a dream. The view from the roof deck alone is worth the stay. My fiancé and I came here with friends over Memorial Day weekend, to get married on the beach. The house was very comfortable, with spectacular views from the living room and decks. The master suite is huge and all the bedrooms are very comfortable. Towels, sheets, and all amenities were provided. The dunes provide a more picturesque view than just flat beach, and the beach itself is the cleanest and nicest I've been to on the Jersey shore. The perfect setting for our beach wedding! We all loved it so much we are considering visiting here for an annual vacation.
excellent surf and jetty fishing, exploring maritime forest and dunes,deep sea fishing on party or charter boats
