You may know that Avalon is “Cooler by a Mile” thanks to its location a mile farther into the Atlantic than the surrounding barrier islands, but did you know it was named for the legendary island where King Arthur’s sword was supposedly forged? The wealthy shore town has been named among the most expensive zip codes in the United States, and these three properties will help you understand why.

Tell me all about it: At nearly 8,400 square feet of living space, it is remarkable that this eight-bedroom bayfront manse manages to be so cozy. With bay views from almost every room and a series of decks, the property evokes major relaxation. The saltwater, in-ground pool and wet bar will help you unwind if you need more than views.

Tell me all about it: What more can we say about this eight-bedroom home than it features private wine bars in the living room and the master suite? This is a home made for enjoyment, from the enormous pool with its own waterfall to the six-bed “bunk room” kids will love. Bonus: an eight-person hot tub is tucked on the first-floor deck behind a privacy wall.
