About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Bath Centrally Located Home With EXTRA PARKING Available

Old Ocean City vintage charm, modern convenience, and central location combine in this unusual and surprisingly spacious home. Fabulous woodwork throughout, the three story, five bedroom 2800 sq. ft. home has recently renovated baths and kitchen. Outdoors is a lovely side brick patio with waterfall and fish pond in the enclosed garden area where there is plenty of room for a crab feast or game of croquet or cornhole.

The first floor of the home has a spacious living room with plenty of comfortable seating for conversation or to watch the home's flat screen TV. The galley kitchen has a bistro seating area and is outfitted with all new cookware and dishes. Just outside the kitchen slider is a gas grill for your barbecuing pleasure. A pot for steaming local crabs or lobster is also included. The dining room easily seats eight but I have entertained many more around that table! There is a dry bar area and a half bath off the dining room as well.

The second floor, which can be accessed by either the front or back stairway, has three bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom has been recently redone with new carpet and paint, has a ton of closet space and a renovated master bath that has two vanities and a large shower. This room has a queen size bed and additional twin bed. Down the hall is another bedroom with a full size bed that shares a bath with another bedroom that has a full and a twin bed. The recently renovated bathroom has a large tiled shower.

A separate staircase leads up to the gabled third floor that has two similar bedrooms, one with a full bed, one with two twins. The washer and dryer are on this third flood level as well as a small full bath with a tub and small shower area.

With the property's narrow lot, the patio and garden area are to the side of the house and this area really does have an oasis feel with the lush landscaping, waterfall and fish/frog pond. ATTENTION FISHERMAN, CRUISERS, BIKERS, AND GOLFERS: I also own the empty lot along the street to the side of the house so there is plenty of parking for your boat trailer, toy hauler, and extra cars!

Local favorite "Stinky Beach"

The Skinny House is conveniently located to everything Worcester County has to offer. Within walking distance to award winning area restaurants, a beautiful sandy beach at the end of the street that overlooks the inlet and all the boat traffic, the commercial harbor and marinas, and the bus transfer station into Ocean City, the Skinny House guest could park their car and not have to drive for the week! Looking for great seafood? Local restaurants AND the local fish dock have all great fish and shellfish, right off the boat. Are you a fisherman? You are in walking distance to the city docks. Even if you don't fish you will enjoy the excitement of seeing all the boats and hear the hum of their motors as they head out the inlet for local fishing tournaments. If you want to venture out to enjoy all that Ocean City proper it is a short walk or drive to the miles of beautiful beach and variety of great restaurants and amusements for all ages. Don't miss walking on the Boardwalk and eating Thrasher's French Fries or Fisher's Popcorn. There is outlet shopping nearby, many beautiful championship golf courses, activities like kayaking, paddleboarding, local gyms, spas and yoga studios. Within ten miles is the Assateague National Park with its pristine beaches and wild horses, a must see for those new to visiting the area! Also within ten miles and a must see is a visit to the town of Berlin, recently voted the Coolest Small Town in America. The historic town has a variety of restaurants and boutiques, as well as antiques shops (a great place for a non-beach day!). The Skinny House has a directory and map of area things to do, places to eat, and helpful hints to enhance your stay.
