There has always been at least one “you know that house” on the island - discussed at cocktail parties and pointed out to visitors. When I was young, it was Ed McMahon’s house on 18th Street. Then there was the elegant home at 40th and First Avenue (now being re-built). And of course, the modest homes in the high dunes were replaced with mini-mansions over the years.
In 1999, the “Marble House” became the most talked about home in town. It was for sale a few years back- without success. It’s on the market again for $7,500,000.
If you know anyone looking for a unique dune front home in Avalon…please let me know
