The JFS House Tour, held on August 6, 2018, gave approximately 500 guests a rare opportunity to see inside seven breathtaking and uniquely structured Downbeach homes while supporting a great cause.
The event raised $45,000 to benefit Village by the Shore, which provides a variety of concierge, volunteer and professional services and socialization for adults fifty and older in our community.
JFS House Tour committee selected Downbeach homes with style, taste, loads of personality.
Houses on the 2018 tour included everything from a remodeled and ADA-modified beach block cape cod to a luxurious 4,200 square-foot custom built home constructed with an energy efficient building envelope making it a model for new shore homes to come.
Other featured homes included a contemporary beach house with custom interior elements, fresh pops of color and a top floor lounge and wet bar with gorgeous Ventnor beach views. Another was an updated 1922 Tudor-style seven bedroom home displaying original details like stained glass panels, Tudor arches and a painted beamed ceiling in the dining room.
The more modern homes on the 2018 tour featured extras like a Tesla charging station, exterior natural gas lamps, a master en suite bathroom with an additional “hers” beauty room, Alexa-enabled smart home technology and much more.
Attendees received a complimentary lunch sponsored by Oasis Property Group in their stunning new home on Quincy Avenue in Margate.
Experts were on-site to offer attendees creative insight, design concepts, and information about the homes.
