9 Charming South Jersey Beach Houses Under 1,000 Square Feet
Winter has us pining for the summertime and that led to searching through beach property listings in South Jersey. (We are licensed in NJ after all!)
For many in our area who grew up heading to South Jersey, owning a beach house (or “shore house”, but we won’t get into that debate here) is a dream. Most new construction homes are as beautiful as they are huge, and while they are a great option, we think there is just something special about those old charmers that can still be found among the ever-rising side-by-sides.
Here are nine beach houses for sale in South Jersey right now with a twist: Each are single-family homes and none of them top 1,000 square feet!

Come take a look at this “Doll House” in the desirable south end of the island. Not a condo, this is a super, neat, clean, single family home on a lot you own. Much roomier than it appears, and features plenty of off street parking, nice back yard, spacious rear deck, and great views of the bay from the nice size living room and throughout the home. Close to beach, bay, restaurants, and piers, T. I. is an extremely nice, quiet, established enclave unto it’s own, and a truly great spot to make a lifetime of cherished memories at the shore.”
