Marchetto Higgins Stieve-Designed 365 Ocean Delivers Picture Perfect Summer Lifestyle, Residents Say

With magnificent ocean views from every home, easy access to the beach, and plenty of outdoor spaces for relaxation, residents of the Marchetto Higgins Stieve-designed 365 Ocean community in Long Branch say the luxury condominium building is helping them lead a laid-back, fun-loving lifestyle this summer.

Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects worked with developer Mark Built Homes to create a community that fully immerses residents in everything sun, sand and surf. Ocean views can be found all over the building, from the residences to the balconies to the amenity areas. Key conveniences integrated into the design allow residents to enjoy more of their free time on the beach, at the pool, or dining al fresco.

Here’s what some of the community’s first residents are saying:

Eugene Chertkov was attracted to 365 Ocean because its impeccable design comes at an excellent value.

“I buy houses all around the world and I only look for unique properties,” Mr. Chertkov said. “This community, and in particular the residence that I chose, has everything I was looking for. It’s very close to the ocean, it has a wraparound balcony and the views are exceptional. It is the kind of place that, in my opinion, there will always be a strong demand for in the market.”

Frontline medical workers Dr. Frank Reda and Wanda Reda were looking for a home where they could de-stress after a long day of work and enjoy the peace and beauty of the ocean.

“For years I would walk up and down Ocean Boulevard and just admire the view, and the shops and the restaurants and how quickly the Long Branch community was developing,” Dr. Reda said. “When we were ready to buy, 365 Ocean seemed like the perfect fit.”

The Redas appreciate the strategic design that allows them to gaze at the crashing waves night and day.

“There’s something to be said for being able to watch the sun rise over the ocean from your living room and then, 12 hours later, watch the moon reflect its light off of the water,” Dr. Reda said. “It’s peaceful and life-affirming. It’s such a joyful experience.”

Recent Penthouse buyers Mike and Nicolle Peto made their dream of living at the beach a reality this June when they moved to 365 Ocean.

“I wanted to be somewhere that you can walk to restaurants and this seemed perfect,” Ms. Peto said. “At the same time, I don’t really like crowds. So I was looking for something where maybe the beaches are a little less crowded and you don’t have to be right in the middle of the action all of the time.”

365 Ocean fit that criteria perfectly. It is located on a quiet stretch of the beach that doesn’t attract day-trippers, but it is a short stroll to Long Branch’s best dining, shopping, and outdoor entertainment destinations. They toured the community and knew it was the place for them when they saw the Penthouse. 

“I was blown away. It really just stopped me in my tracks,” Ms. Peto said. “The first thing I saw was the railing and the terrace and it reminded me of a cruise ship. I loved the design.”

Steve Gjolanga and Tania Silva were looking for a vacation home in upstate New York but decided to purchase at 365 Ocean instead after a weekend trip to Long Branch.

“When we saw 365 Ocean for the first time, we fell in love right away because it was clear that it offered a higher standard of living than the other properties we saw,” Mr. Gjolanga said. “You can stand in your own home every day and see the sunrise. To me there’s nothing better than that.”

In addition to the plush interiors and the Marchetto Higgins Stieve design of the building, Mr. Gjolanga and Ms. Silva were impressed at how accommodating the 365 Ocean team was during their home buying process, including Mark Built Homes, exclusive sales and marketing agent CB New Homes, and property manager Integra Management.

“I just want to emphasize how great the staff at the building and at Mark Built Homes was. They made the whole experience enjoyable,” Mr. Gjolanga said. “We’re happy to be in a place that looks after its residents the way they do. They really care about the property, and just knowing that we have people like that working on our behalf and protecting our investment is reassuring.”

Located on Ocean Avenue in Long Branch, 365 Ocean is a brand new seven-story condominium community with oceanfront homes that feature up to 2,411 square feet of living space, at least two spacious bedrooms, two luxurious baths, full-sized gourmet kitchens, and a private terrace or deck that can accommodate a gas grill. The community is more than 60 percent sold and prices of available units range from the low $900s to over $2.7 million.

Amenities and services include an infinity-edge plunge pool, sundeck, club room with wet bar, Wi-fi, charging stations, lounge seating, a theatre television area, outdoor breezeway, gas fire pit overlooking the ocean, and a seasonal concierge. Amenities are located at the front of the building and feature eastern exposures with ocean views. Every residence also comes with two secure indoor parking spaces located within the building.

365 Ocean residents are well-connected. Commuter ferries to Manhattan operate out of the nearby town of Highlands daily and NJ TRANSIT rail service to Manhattan is also available via the Long Branch train station. Downtown Red Bank and Asbury Park are both just a short drive away.
