Burned Out Cliffwood Beach House Untouched After 4 Months

That burned out shell of a house in Cliffwood Beach that I mentioned here back in late January remains untouched four months after the fire. It would be nice to know what the situation is with the owners and what issues are delaying demolition. It seems unreasonable for local residents to have to endure this unsightly and dangerous hulk this long. Spring home sales in the area were surely affected. Was the house uninsured? Does anyone know the story here?


  1. There's also a burned out house on Twilight Avenue, off Woodmere Drive, that has been that way for over a year now. The town tells me that because it is bank owned they can't take it down yet. So instead we get to deal with the feral cats that have made it their home....

    1. my best friend owned that home she died and it looks suspicious to me her husband flew the coop he couldn't afford the mortgage the whole thing looks fishy it conveniently burned down. is it still there? OMgoodness

  2. The house has been restored and seems to have survived the hurricane. The two houses next door took trees to their roofs. I don't know the story behind the fire and restoration, but it sure has taken a long time to get the house back and functional. Tough times to have a fire.
