Sitting on two 50x100 lots, in the heart of Surf City, on a lovely and wide street, this classic cape has provided years and years of enjoyment to the owners. Used as a family house since it’s inception in 1953, and built to standards not seen in these times, this substantial cape boast five bedrooms, two baths, a large kitchen and dining area and more. Amazing back yard with cedar trees, and even a tree swing. Add your personal touches to this classic home and enjoy a real LBI beach house. Newer roof, water heater, and heating system and no damage from Sandy. Welcome to 225 n. 12th st., Surf City. Upon entering the large and open living room, notice all of the light and air. Huge picture window flanked by two large double hung windows. Two additional windows on the sides of the amazing fireplace with custom mantle extending the full length of the wall. Coffered ceilings and beautiful wood paneling add just the right touch to the large comfy space. Off of the living room there is one of two first floor bedrooms, currently being used as a family room. Spill over guests can sleep here, but note the two large closets, ready for bedroom use. Large enough for two queen beds, and again, lots of light and air with a picture window with two windows to the side of it…along with windows to the east. Fresh air will dance thorough this first floor. A second large bedroom on this floor adds even more flexibility. This bedroom is large, with a desk and armoire fitting nicely. Two closets in this room as well. The wonderfully designed kitchen rounds out the first floor. Lots of space for dining, and classic pine cabinets, with lots of storage space for all of your kitchen tools. The kitchen opens to a wonderfully covered space leading to the oversized garage. Heading upstairs, notice the lovely bannister from 1953. The “yellow” bedroom, while not having closets, is large and would easily house an armoire. With lots of windows for the best sleep of your lifetime, imagine waking up in the lovely room. Adjacent is a bedroom with a door out to the deck. Convert this bedroom to a family room, and use the house as a five bedroom house with an upstairs and downstairs living area. It does not get better. The blue bedroom, perfect for the kids, holds three single beds comfortably. Two dresser drawers, large closet, and windows on two walls for cross ventilation. With all these bedrooms and lots of living space, this house is a perfect candidate for a remodel….if you want one of the coolest classic REAL beach houses on LBI.
