A DIY Network Renovated Jersey Shore Home Could Be Yours

There’s a lot at stake for homeowners who renovate to flip their homes. DIY Network’s new show, First Time Flippers, highlights the anxieties, risks, and potential payoffs that come with learning to flip homes. In a recent episode, one New Jersey couple decided to dive in and tackle a host of renovation challenges on their Jersey Shore home.

In their episode, titled “Waterfront Worry,” the couple, Matt and Amy, “didn’t plan to go overboard on their waterfront flip in Brick, New Jersey. But after they start demolition, Matt finds more and more things to change, putting them over budget and overwhelmed by the work.”

With a lot of investments on the line, the couple is now searching for buyers who see the value in their recent home improvements. Are you ready to be convinced that this renovated Jersey Shore property is your dream home?

Live Along the Jersey Shore in This Bayfront Home

Located at 49 Rochester Drive, this Brick home is a slice of bayfront heaven with some of the best views the Jersey Shore has to offer! As you drive towards the home, you’ll start to wonder if you’re about to drive into the Shore itself, as the property offers coveted waterfront access to Barnegat Bay.

The 3-story bayfront home rests in the center of a protected bird sanctuary, creating a sense of serenity from the moment you arrive at the property.

Newly renovated, the home’s exterior boasts new vinyl siding, an updated roof, and a newer vinyl bulkhead. And trust us, the exterior renovations have nothing on the interior updates.

Step Inside This First-Time Flipper Home

Bright and airy throughout, this home celebrates its location on the bay with tall ceilings, natural light, and seaside detail throughout. On the main floor, each of the bedrooms offers beautiful views to the water below. And on the home’s upper level, slanted ceiling and skylights create a warm, cozy feel as you listen to the tide break against the rocks below.

As you make your way downstairs, you’ll find an open layout space that shows off the bulk of Matt and Amy’s renovation work. The home’s kitchen renovations betray the presence of seasoned renovation experts. Decorated in an industrial-chic style, the wood countertops and statement light fixtures make this area one of the home’s focal points. Also on this level, you’ll find two spacious master suites with walk-in closets, private decks, and marble showers.

While it’s the home’s recent renovations that drove up the listing price, there are a few things that the first-time flippers left untouched that we love: there’s an undeveloped beach adjacent to the home that gives you privacy and unparalleled bay access. Likewise, the home is equipped with a 112 foot-long dock with 2 boat lifts, a jet ski lift, and an extra second driveway for winter boat storage. If you’re ready to jump-start your waterfront lifestyle, this home is perfect as-is.
