I wouldn't go all the way to icky, but certainly some questions left over - like who the hell patterned the marble in the bathroom that way?  'shower with satan' has never been a selling point.  And that blue  tinted wood bar will be next decades shag carpet on the wall. 

But, that view.

I don't mind minimalist. This just isn't very attractive.

I guess if a home were assessed in the mega-millions, and I believe NJ and other states may also figure in the property owners' incomes or other factors when calculating property taxes - so anything is possible - especially given the needs of whatever township it is.  I recently read about how a lot more properties on the NJ and LI shores either can't get flood/disaster insurance or have to pay obscenely high prices for it from entities like Lloyd's Of London.  A lot of that happened along the NC and SC coasts recently as well - there are apparently a lot of now-uninsured properties all along the East Coast.

 
That is scary. We've been contemplating quake insurance, but the premiums are ridonculous, huge deductibles, like, 25% of the value of the home. So what's the point?

I remember seeing a property listing prior to the bursting bubble that yes, was $20k/month. Mantoloking. The ocean front homes are multi-million dollar properties, and the township is dealing with some major infrastructure issues, like keeping the barrier island, on which these properties lie, from washing further south. It's highly likely that things have changed with lowered values (after the crash) and reassessments.

Obviously, it would depend on the assessed value of the property but are you sure they pay $20K a month in property tax in Coastal NJ?  $240K a year in property tax alone?  That would have to be a billion-dollar property.

Essex County property owners were saddled with the highest (annual) taxes, at an average of $11,550, followed by Bergen County at $11,311 and Union County at $10,821.

Massachusetts has lower property tax rates than NJ, even the average yearly amount is least than $3K on Nantucket where the average home value is $2M.

It's highly likely that things have changed with lowered values (after the crash) and reassessments. I'm seeing today that a $9M home's monthly tax burden is just under $4k. So perhaps things have settled down.

That would be a bargain for ocean-adjacent properties in the Northeast. My sister pays a lot more than that for her little house on Plum Island, MA. There are some homes on the New Joy Sea shore that are paying ten times that/month. Which is why we don't live there.
