Set behind tall gates and hedges for the ultimate in privacy, and with an expansive yard for entertaining, this fully gated 1924 original Spanish cottage is full of charm and updated with modern conveniences.

Updates include all new plumbing/waste/sewer lines, a new tankless water heater, mostly new electrical, new appliances, new air conditioning, new custom arched French doors to access the yard, a built-in mud bench, Ring alarm system and security cameras, an epoxied garage floor, an automatic driveway gate, an electric car charger and more! The new kitchen has custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a large single basin farm sink, expansive countertops, eat-in bar seating, and a pantry with pull-out shelves. Additionally, downstairs, there is also a living room, dining room and powder room, all with wide plank wood floors and charming arches and original arched windows. Upstairs, find three large bedrooms and the a renovated full bath. The attached single car garage houses the washer and dryer and utility sink. Outside, find two different yard spaces with artificial grass, which can be connected for a large space. There is also a driveway with parking for two cars behind an automatic gate. Located on a small frontage road, this private two-story home is unlike any other in the Shore. In an ultra-convenient location, just three short blocks from the beach, and less than one block from the shops and restaurants on Second Street, this home is great for end users, but would also be a perfect investment property/short-term rental.
