The new home at the northern corner of Ocean Avenue at Ocean Pathway continues to evolve slowly:
Moving westward up the Pathway, on the same side of the street, work proceeds at the Manchester site where 25 Ocean Pathway is making progress. It will have 7 bedrooms, 6.5 baths (this means that 6 1/2 people can go simultaneously, perhaps breaking a Guinness record for a single family house). Also there will be 2 fireplaces (where you can roast marshmallows while waiting for a bathroom to become available) – -totaling 4,476 square feet.
There is a sign outside which says that the Manchester Inn contained two historic Victorian homes built in 1890 during the Ocean Grove “period of significance.” The sign says that the designs for #25 and #27 are based on old photographs and maps and were approved by the HPC. — Paul Goldfinger
SOUNDTRACK: We don’t know if those two fireplaces will be roaring by Christmas, but we can imagine it. Here are Frankie S and Old Red Eyes who are predicting a marshmallow world.:
