Iconic ‘Sinatra’ home on the boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ is up for sale
Start spreading the news: the property known as “Frank Sinatra’s House” is for sale!
Anyone who has ever walked the Point Pleasant Beach Boardwalk knows the Sinatra House. For decades, it has become one of the Jersey Shore’s most iconic properties.
Visitors and residents who walked the boards knew that once they approached the house (located in front of the bars, restaurants and arcades), they would be greeted by the silky sounds of Sinatra’s voice emanating from the property 24/7. People knew it and people expected it.
The owner of the Sinatra House was the late Paul R. Smith, former president of Sony Music Distribution and a huge Sinatra fan, according to Atlas Obscura.
Smith wanted to share his love of Sinatra’s music with others. That’s why he played his idol’s songs through his property’s outdoor speakers.
According to the website, and according to stories from locals, Smith’s children have tried their best to keep the music alive since their father passed away in 2002.
But, now, the home that paid homage to Ol’ Blue Eyes is up for sale – a truly unique opportunity, according to James Ward of Keller Williams Realty Ocean Living.
Located on the boardwalk/waterfront at 175 Boardwalk in Point Beach, this is special real estate.
This 3,648 square foot property with the largest drive-in lot is selling for $4.4 million.
With parking for over 10 cars, this is unique as many beachfront homes in Point Beach have more limited parking, off-site and in some cases no parking.
As for the house itself, there are 8 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, enough to accommodate up to 25 people.
The main level features an open concept with beautiful ocean views from every window. The covered wraparound porch offers gorgeous panoramic views of the ocean, cove, and boardwalk.
It’s a wonderful place to host dinner parties, afternoon cocktails, a delicious lunch, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the cool ocean breeze while reading a good book.
Be sure to turn on the exterior speakers! You can still play Frank Sinatra music, but the choice is yours, of course.
Also on the main level there are 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms as well as a flex room with a private entrance that doubles as an additional living space or a 9th sleeping space.
The floor is known as the sanctuary.
There is a versatile bedroom or living space with access to the balcony which again has endless views of the ocean, cove and boardwalk. Another full bathroom on this level creates the potential for use as a master suite.
The lower level offers a spacious living room and a coffered ceiling, perfect for entertaining on cool summer nights and cold winter evenings.
There is a wet bar, tiled floors and direct access to the oversized garage. Three additional bedrooms and another full bathroom complete the upstairs.
