The French Victorian Chateau that sat at 189 Monmouth Boulevard in Oceanport for over a century was recently rebuilt with a 4,167-square-foot home built by Steven and Lisa Denholtz of Denholtz Custom Homes. The home was inspired by the original structure, which was rebuilt after two storms; however, it was too damaged by 2012’s Hurricane Sandy to be salvaged. Lisa was initially drawn to the property as it sits on an avian migration path.
“The NJDEP and CAFRA required that the home be no bigger or higher than the original chateau,” Lisa said in a prepared release. “These constraints were non-negotiable since the house is on a main road.”
Highlights of the five-bedroom, four-bathroom house include white oak hardwood flooring, a kitchen with full-height stone walls, an island with a second sink, a floating staircase, three fireplaces, and a three-car garage. An 1,100-square-foot rear deck, dock with a new bulkhead, and inground pool completes the outdoor space.
As a way to give back to the community, the Denholtz’s have entered their home into the Visiting Nurse Association of Central New Jersey’s 45th Annual Holiday House Tour, Gift Boutique, and Luncheon on Friday, December 7, with proceeds benefiting a fund that provides hospice patients and families with various programs. Participants can take a self-guided tour of 189 Monmouth Boulevard as well as other private homes in the Two River area of Monmouth County. General Admission House Tour tickets are $50 and can be purchased here.
