A penthouse in Asbury Park that was listed for $5.9 million just closed, becoming the most expensive home ever sold in the Jersey Shore town. Located at the 17-story Asbury Ocean Club, the duplex penthouse contains four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and boasts roughly 2,300 square feet of outdoor space, which comes in the form of a wrap-around terrace, sunroom, and outdoor kitchen.

Designed by Handel Architects and Anda Andrei Design, the boardwalk-facing hotel-condo officially opened last summer, marketed as an easy escape from New York City, which is a little over an hour’s drive to the beach town.
Jodi Stasse, the senior managing director of Corcoran Sunshine, the agency leading the sales at Asbury Ocean Club, said the sale comes as more people are looking for a “driveable escape.”
“Asbury Ocean Club provides that unique resort getaway where you can truly live, work and play,” Stasse said. “The appeal of a ‘lock and leave’ lifestyle means every request is resolved with a phone call the minute you arrive home, or even before. The vision was to provide our owners with more time to spend with family and friends while our concierge takes care of your everyday needs. That is Asbury Ocean Club.”
The building’s 130 condo units feature white oak hardwood floors, custom cabinetry, and luxury fixtures and accents throughout. Amenities include a massive heated pool and sun deck with ocean views, a spa, fitness center, library and game room, chef’s kitchen, screening room, a business center with private offices, and a pet spa.
The 54-room hotel occupies the fourth floor of the building and rooms boast either sand dune or ocean views. At the center of the hotel is the “Drawing Room,” an all-glass room sitting on the reflecting pool. The Drawing Room includes a kitchen, bar, and music room with a baby grand piano. The hotel has been closed to visitors because of the virus, but has started accepting reservations for next spring.
