Creating Your Own Perfect Shore Getaway


Just two months ago (see blog entry February 2, 2009) I told you about a house located at 104 N. Clermont Avenue in Margate.
When it came on the market, most of the people, Realtors included considered the house a "tear down". Well, with a little bit of money and the innovative concepts of builder/developer, Remarkable Renovations' Debra Buchalski this outdated house, has become an elegant and modern beach getaway complete with every amenity one could hope for in a home of this size tailor made to suit the needs of the people that purchased it.

Originally a traditional 3 BD 2 BA house with tiny kitchen, this home was transformed into a 4 BD 2.5 BA house with an open floor plan that includes an eat in kitchen w/granite counter tops with breakfast bar, new hardwood floors, corner gas log fireplace. There is a first floor master suite, and the enclosed staircase was opened and replaced with decorative railings found in high end homes. The old alcove kitchen has been turned into a small bonus bedroom with a pull down Murphy bed.

Upstairs there are two large bedrooms that share a beautiful bathroom with tub shower. The outdoor space includes a large front porch with wood capped railings, and there is a fenced yard with pavers and grass with room for barbeques and the enclosed outdoor shower. There is also an attached one car garage. Just 2.5 blocks to the beach, the new owners purchased the finished products for $525,000 on April 6, 2009.

Remarkable Renovations has another new project beginning in May, not yet on the market. This new home will have direct ocean views. We are very excited about it.

Our area is not lacking for Buyers, and based upon the current mortgage market, there is no better time to buy. The true challenge we face is finding a home that meets the needs of the Buyer. Smart Buyers discover that a house in the right location is worth fixing. Perfect homes do not exist, but with the right people, you can make a home to meet most of your needs.
