Harold Webb says he hopes to turn a negative into a positive. After superstorm Sandy destroyed the small bungalow on his property in the West End of Long Beach, Webb had to completely rebuild it. He recently placed the new four-bedroom, three-bathroom Colonial, elevated to be FEMA compliant, on the market for $650,000.
“I had to start over from scratch,” Webb says. “It's been draining.”
Webb, who has lived on the South Shore for many years, says he hopes to find a buyer who appreciates the water views and easy access to the beach.
The home, which has red oak floors throughout, features an open kitchen with a center island and granite countertops, a great room, a formal dining room and a master suite with its own full bathroom and walk-in closet.
There are two terraces, and the home has a view of Reynolds Channel and is two blocks from the ocean. There is parking for four cars, which listing agent Bryan Murphy of Real Living Innovations Realty says is pretty rare for Long Beach.
