Location, location, location!! This 6500 SF luxury Mediterranean-style beach mansion is located in the heart of the prestigious 'A-zone' of Brigantine and is literally a few steps from the pristine brigantine beach. Located on a double lot just 3 homes from the ocean, this huge mansion boasts direct, unobstructed ocean views.

The mansion sleeps up to 22 people comfortably with it's 7 over-sized bedrooms and 5.5 luxury baths. It's the perfect home for larger family gatherings, special celebrations or corporate retreats.

The 1st floor main living area includes the grand entrance hall with it's custom circular stairway which leads the whole way to the 3rd floor. The 2 story great room boasts a stunning gas fireplace and huge flat screen tv as well as a fabulous adjacent bar. The gourmet kitchen will delight any chef with its complete suite of Viking professional appliances and granite counter tops. The dining room is designed to seat up to 22 people so your entire group can eat together. You can escape to the living room if you need some quiet time or check out the tv/theatre room to watch a movie or play video games. The first floor also includes a powder room, laundry room and 2 car garage. You also have direct access to the new in-ground pool and gorgeous Travertina patio.

Step into the elevator or ascend the grand staircase and 5 luxurious bedrooms and 4 fabulous tiled bathrooms will greet you on the 2nd floor. Everything is in grand scale. Most bedrooms have king sized beds and walk in closets with custom shelving to make move in and move out a breeze. Most bedrooms have access to the many balconies surrounding the house. Delight in the rejuvenating ocean views as you begin each new day.

Enjoy stunning ocean vistas and soak in the ocean breezes as you lounge or sun bathe on the roof deck.

Brigantine offers the best of all worlds. It is a very family friendly, small town atmosphere, with small shops, parks and restaurants but is located just across the bridge from all the glitz, glamour and excitement of Atlantic City. This perfect location combined with this magnificent luxury home offers my guests an unforgettable experience and lifelong cherished memories.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at your home. Your attention to detail in every way was greatly appreciated and can not be underestimated in terms of the effect it has on your renter's vacation experience.

There were 17 in our family group, 8 adults and 9 grandchildren ranging in age from 5 to 18. Your home easily accommodated the 17 sleepers. Everyone found something that held their interest be it the swimming pool, the putting green or the availability of a TV for watching something that few, if any, had an interest in watching. Grandma (Nancy) cooks all lunches and dinners for everyone for the week, and your very complete kitchen facilities and equipment drew her praise. The two tables in the dining room and living room easily handled all of us at mealtime.



The putting green was a very big favorite for young and old with many putting contests being held throughout the week. The putters you provided were perfect because they could be used by a righty or a lefty, again great attention to detail.



The house's location is a very big plus because it takes crossing Ocean Avenue out of the equation when the kids are going to or from the beach.



We look forward to returning next year!

Unforgettable!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, 4 30 something kids and spouses and 4 grandchildren had the pleasure of spending our mini 5-day family get-together at this fabulous home. The moment we arrived we saw what a special place this is, even better than the photos.

We all had our own rooms with linens provided to give us privacy but spent most of our time in the great room, dining rooms, TV room and always out by the pool and putting green. The indoor and outdoor furniture was so comfortable and lots of space for grandkids to do their floor puzzles.

The elevator was great for bringing our luggage up to the 2nd and 3rd floors. There had to be at least 15 to 20 beach chairs in the garage and lots of beach towels and beach toys. Again, anything we needed was provided.

Had the best kids vacay here ever and would like to thank Brian for being a wonderful host! (Just a quick note to him, thank you for your timely return of the security deposit. We left on sunday and received it in the mail on Thursday, WOW!

If we can get all kids from Singapore, san Diego, Philadelphia and new Jersey together again next year, will definitely be booking again!

We were extremely impressed with the Mansion. We used it for a Women's Retreat/Advance. I

  • 5 of 5

The Mansion is fully loaded to meet your needs. The rooms are spacious, very clean, along with the breath taking decor. I would recommend this Mansion to be used for a family reunion, church event or just a group get away . It would be awesome for the bride and groom to have their honeymoon. Just a few yards away from the ocean. Please book in advance .

Over The TOP Luxury

  • 5 of 5

For 45 plus years, in our own Brigantine home and in several rental properties, our extended family from Ohio, South Carolina, NJ and PA has gathered during the week of July 4, to celebrate birthdays and create more family memories. Nothing can compare to this one held at Brian's mansion.

This year, the remaining 6 of 9 siblings gathered with their immediate families, including children 6 to 18 years. Of course we used all 22 sleeping areas and totally enjoyed so many amenities. A huge dining area accommodated every member at family dinners. Our memory photo will always be the last six elderly siblings lined up on that gorgeous stairway.

Brian accommodates every request almost instantly. For ex. during an early walk through I thought the young teens who would be sleeping in 3rd floor alcoves needed extra privacy. Brian had screens delivered before we even arrived!

Brian's list of resources provided us with a great outdoor barbecue party caterer, Laura Grentz and her grill master, George. Working with many caterers, I have planned and given many parties, but none have made it so easy as Laura did. From suggesting the perfect menu and preparing delicious food right down to cutting and serving cake, Laura helped make it a perfect party for a 106 yr old and her 95 yr old sister on July 4, at an incredibly reasonable cost.

Everything has been described in these reviews and there is nothing left to be said. It is simply over the TOP! Now I have the reputation of planning destination parties and family reunions that usually only exist in the movies. The Mansion was the star!

Owner's Response: Marti, It has been such a pleasure to host you and your family at the Mansion by the Sea! Your family is AMAZING and it was just incredible for me to help facilitate both a 95th and a 106th birthday! WOW! Now that's an accomplishment and I'm so honored! You and your family are truly blessed! It literally fills my heart with joy that you were able to share this precious family time together in the Mansion and make such cherished lifelong memories. May your family photo on the grand staircase always be a treasured reminder of the wonderful times you shared together in the Mansion.

Luxury Shore Rental

  • 5 of 5

To call this a rental does not do it justice. It is a home away from home. No need to bring anything but your friends and family - the house is fully equipped with the best of everything! No need to lug towels, sheets, beach chairs, cooking stuff, etc. It is like a 5 star resort that is all yours! The owner, Brian, is available behind the scenes to make sure that all of your expectations are met. House is beyond beautiful, very short walk to the beach (badges included!) but the pool area is hard to resist! Tons of room for privacy but also space when you all want to be together. We can not wait for next year!

Owner's Response: Linda...I can't thank you and your wonderful family enough for your repeat rentals year after year! It is such a pleasure to host you and it's my goal every year to exceed your expectations! I'm so gratified to know my mission was accomplished and I can't wait to host you again in 2018!

Amazing and Felt like Home

  • 5 of 5

We can not say enough good things about the property and the owner. The Property was amazing, the house was so close to the beach and had an amazing pool. We felt at home here and was a perfect place for our family. Every pillow and bed was so comfortable, we all slept amazing. We can't wait to go back over and over.
