The Cottage was constructed in 1936. The current owners are the 3rd owners of this cozy little beach cottage. The house & the neighborhood carry quite a bit history, as there are pictures of the house, Breezy Point Park, from the early 1950s in the kitchen.
The current owners restored the little cottage with an interior remodel, structural repair & a concept design based on retaining the original 1936 era with all the comforts, luxury & low maintenance of a new estate type home.
All work was filed, performed & approved through the building permitting process. All permits & documentation will convey with the sale of this incredible restoration.
