Asbury Ocean Club Closes Record-Breaking Penthouse, Its Highest Listed Residence

Listed for $5.9 million, the residence is the most expensive home sold in Asbury Park history 

Asbury Ocean Club (AsburyOceanClub.com), the 17-story residential property that introduced luxury living to the Jersey Shore last summer, recently closed on its largest residence. Listed at $5.9 million, the sale marks a record in Asbury Park’s history and is a testament to the luxury design and lifestyle of the oceanfront oasis, which includes a full suite of amenities and luxury services. Asbury Ocean Club is just 70 minutes from Manhattan and less than an hour from many prominent New Jersey communities. Residents soak in coastal surroundings from every corner of the property, all while being at the center of Asbury Park’s vibrant city by the sea, offering miles of boardwalk and beaches, an active arts culture, and an established and growing restaurant scene. 

The recent duplex penthouse sale is one of only six unique two-story penthouse designs at Asbury Ocean Club. This one-of-a-kind four-bedroom, four-bathroom residence boasts 6,846 square feet in total, with more than 4,500 square feet of indoor living space and 2,300 square feet of outdoor rooms, balconies, and a rooftop terrace featuring an outdoor kitchen. 

In addition to having access to 24/7 concierge services, residents can also enjoy top-of-the-line amenities, which include a 65×30-foot heated, ocean-view pool and sun deck, pampering spa; state-of-the-art fitness center; library and game room; fully-equipped chef kitchen; cinema screening room; and business center with private offices and video conferencing capabilities. Keeping residents’ furry friends in mind, amenities also include a pet spa and wash station for sandy paws. 

At the heart of the property is The Drawing Room – a “glass house” looking onto the deck and sand-dune landscape – serving as a living room with an open kitchen and libations lounge, creating a year-round fireside retreat. 

“People are spending more time at home now more than ever and are seeking a drivable landscape. Asbury Ocean Club provides that unique resort getaway where you can truly live, work, and play,” says Jodi Stasse, senior managing director of Corcoran Sunshine, who leads Asbury Ocean Club’s exclusive sales and marketing team. “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 Cub.” 

With understated design by Anda Andrei (11 Howard, Gramercy Park Hotel + Residences), the residences’ hand-selected finishes include white oak hardwood flooring; custom cabinetry by Spazzi of Spain; engineered stone countertops; Hansgrohe fixtures; and bathrooms featuring polished porcelain walls. Simple materials, like concrete and glass with wood accents, create an open, light, and airy setting. Asbury Ocean Club’s graceful curves, courtesy of Handel Architects (Dream Downtown Hotel in Manhattan, Rosewood Hotel in Abu Dhabi), reflect the shoreline and accentuate views from each home. 

The seller is the building’s developer iStar, the real estate leader that became master developer of 30 acres along Asbury Park’s waterfront in 2010. The decade-long, multi-billion-dollar redevelopment plan set forth by iStar includes The Asbury (www.theasburyhotel.com), as well as Asbury Lanes (https://www.asburylanes.com).
