Avalon real estate, as the Avalon motto boasts, is, “cooler by a mile.” For the homeowner looking for Avalon houses for sale, this means endless recreation, shopping, dining, relaxation and a small town feel unexpected from one of the Jersey Shore’s mot affluent communities.
Located on Seven Mile Island, a barrier island off the coast of New Jersey’s southernmost Cape May County, Avalon area real estate has long been treasured as an island getaway for city dwellers as well as a place to settle down and build a life. However, the small town feel does not mean quaintness is the only thing Avalon has going for it, as The Washingtonian named it the “chicest beach” in the mid-Atlantic.
Avalon real estate listings range from beautiful beachside bungalows for couples without kids to sprawling coastal manors with some of the most stunning vistas the Eastern Seaboard has to offer. At only about a mile wide, every Avalon home for sale is within walking distance of either the Atlantic Ocean or the interior inlet side, and seafarers are sure to make use of the many harbors and jetties.
Families have their pick of fun activities for their children in Avalon, with nine parks and playgrounds and miles of safe beach to explore and streets to bike through. The Avalon School District, in conjunction with the Stone Harbor School District of the neighboring Stone Harbor borough, provides topnotch schools with excellent student/teacher ratios.
There is never any shortage of fun activities going on downtown for the whole family to enjoy. When the holidays come around, residents of Avalon partake in events such as Festive Friday, a family-friendly day filled with over 40 activities including a 5k run and a Festival of Trees. Other events throughout the year include a wine & spirits festival, a craft fair and, of course, a seafood festival, complete with live music, tons of vendors and even a chowder contest.
Retired couples, empty nesters and singles can enjoy a vibrant downtown area, including the Dune Drive shopping district, with 30 restaurants, bars and Avalon’s trademark beautiful romantic scenery. Avalon area real estate comes with the added benefit of public docks, so whether your activity of choice is boating, sailing, kayaking, fishing, body surfing or watching the sunrise over the ocean, a home in Avalon is minutes away from exactly what you want to do.
Avalon has everything you’d expect from an island getaway with the convenience of being just a few miles from Garden State Parkway via Avalon Boulevard. The Garden State Parkway services all of New Jersey straight up to New York. Seven Mile Island also features a seasonal trolley service that runs between Avalon and Stone Harbor.
If you’re looking for East Coast style with small town comfort, big city proximity and resort town beaches, Avalon real estate is for you. Contact your local Prudential, Fox & Roach agent today for more information.
