Bill Gold has made available for purchase his Ventnor single-family, summer home at 108 S. Sacramento Ave. that his three children and five grandchildren love.

Gold, 76, is now more partial to the summers in Vermont, so his five-bedroom, three-full bath and one half-bath house is for sale for under $1 million even though it is only four houses away from the beach and the ocean.

“I love sitting on my deck. That could be my favorite (room) because you can feel the breeze, and you can see the ocean. You can see the Boardwalk, and it’s so peaceful,” Gold said.

The 12-room, three-story family house has a living room with a built-in, gas log fireplace and crown molding, a half-bath, a long-entry foyer and a laundry/utility room with a washer and dryer.

“We put in a new picture-type window for more light in the living room,” said Gold about one of the renovations he made since buying the home in 2012.

There is eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances and cabinetry also on the first floor. The kitchen includes self-cleaning oven, a dishwasher, a gas stove, a refrigerator, a microwave and a garbage disposal.

On the second floor, there is a master suite with a master bathroom and a walk-in closet. There are two bedrooms, and one of the bedrooms has a balcony. There is one hall bathroom for the two bedrooms.

There are two full bedrooms, a full bathroom and an office on the third floor.

The home also offers multi-zoned central air conditioning along with ceiling fans, a deck, an outside shower, a patio, a porch, a shed and a full walled, but unfinished basement that the Golds have not used.

Prior to the Golds buying the property, the residence was totally gutted and restored with the hardwood floors and the granite that it still has, Gold said

“The summertime, the house was pretty much occupied from Memorial Day through Labor Day. My kids used it a great deal with us,” Gold said. “We had wonderful barbecues. We have a fenced-in yard with seating. It’s all very private (while being) outdoors.”

Gold could have purchased a home in any Shore community, but he decided on that house in Ventnor because he loved the proximity to the Boardwalk.

“It’s so close, to ride our bikes and walk and just sit out on the Boardwalk. That was one of the main features,” Gold said. “The house is a family compound. It’s a great retreat for a family.”

Gold said the other houses on S. Sacramento Avenue are all fairly large and substantial in terms of size, but there is only one other identical house to his on the entire street, but it is closer to Atlantic Avenue.

The house sits on a lot that is less than an acre, but room was set aside for four private, off-street parking spaces adjacent to the house. There is also a concrete driveway, a paved road and curbs.

Even though Bill Gold and his wife live in Vermont now, they are from Philadelphia, and all of their married children live in Philadelphia.

Before the S. Sacramento Avenue house, the Golds were familiar with Atlantic and Cape May counties.

They had a previous home in Ventnor from 1969 to 1979, lived in Brigantine for a number of years in the early 1980’s and spent 21 years in Cape May Point.

“My kids are going to miss it (the house) a great deal,” said Gold, who added sand is in his children’s blood. “All their friends live in Ventnor and Margate, and even my grandkids, their friends live in Ventnor and Margate. They are going to have heavy withdrawal.”
