Let's take a look...

If you’re searching for a home near the beach, you’re not going to get any closer than this rare find in the thriving coastal resort of Ocean City.

It's the perfect spot for enjoying a back yard filled with sand and falling asleep each night while listening to the crashing waves and smelling the salt air. If that interests you, then this really is a property you need to check out today while it’s still on the market.

Resting on 127thStreet and the ocean in north Ocean City, this home is perfectly nestled in a six-unit property. It’s the first unit in the property that’s come on the market in more than a quarter-century, so if you’re interested, you might want to take a look at it sooner rather than later.

Top features of the two bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom home include a rear balcony where you can watch the ocean any time you like, and steps that will walk you right down to the beach in your own back yard.

Great views are also prominent  in the home’s light and bright main living area, and even from the fully equipped and comfortable kitchen.

As an added bonus, the property is also very near Northside Park, one of Ocean City’s top destinations and home to several annual events, such as Sundaes in the Park and the always fun and popular Winterfest of Lights during the holiday season.
