102 Trenton Boulevard, Sea Girt, New Jersey
You’ll be just four houses from the beach in this three-bedroom, two-bath in Sea Girt, a good distance away from the crowds that usually gather near the concession stands due north. If you time your drive right, getting to this part of the Jersey shore from the city should take just an hour and 15 minutes, says listing broker Susan Miller. Plus, “there are no Snookis here,” she says.
