Countless Chester County residents flock to the Jersey Shore every year in the summer.
If you’re one of them, and vacationing in the vicinity of Long Beach Island, you’ll want to check out a 9,000-square-foot estate that just hit the market. It boasts an ice cream parlor, butterfly habitat, and koi pond, writes Lisa Dukart for the Philadelphia Business Journal.
For sale at $13.9 million, this seven-bedroom, nine-full-bathroom Victorian home was built in a way to ensure that virtually every room has an ocean view. And with 152 feet of ocean frontage, it wasn’t too hard to achieve.
The home is owned by Opex chairman Albert F. Stevens. It is designed for entertainment and the interior reflects that. The huge gourmet kitchen boasts double wall ovens, a walk-in pantry, and a warming oven. Meanwhile, the game room features a cedar sauna and a bar, with the ice cream parlor included as part of the media room.
The property also has impressive outdoor living spaces, including several decks, one with a hot tub, and balconies throughout the house.
It’s “the most talked-about house here for the past 23 years,” said listing agent Sharon Stefanoni.
