I like the water, so let’s start on the dock at the rear of 119 Curtis Point Drive in Mantoloking, New Jersey. Behind is the beautiful Barnegat Bay. In a fast boat from the dock, it is only a few moments to the Mantoloking Yacht Club.
In front of us is the pretty house with a charming chalet look, sitting beyond a spacious deck, pool and veranda. It is now that we begin to notice the quality. Everything looks crisp, well maintained and beautifully thought out. This is usually an excellent sign. A home that looks good on the outside can signify a house that looks good on the inside.
We will not be disappointed. We will be thrilled. The house on the inside is even better than the outside – if that is possible. But there is a bit of an optical illusion going on because, although the house looks compact from the exterior, indoors there is excellent accommodation including seven bedroom suites. The downstairs layout flows between the fabulous kitchen, comfortable family room, quiet sitting space and bay-view dining area.
This home is for relaxation, family and entertaining. It has the location, space and specification to cater for all three with ease. Ease is the perfect word to describe the feeling that this beautiful house engenders.
So let’s pop into the sensational climate-controlled wine room, pop a cork, pour a glass and pull up a chair on the deck for one of the best times of the day – sunset. It is going to be a fantastic show.
