Our History

The Essex and Sussex, built in 1914 in one of the most prestigious shore communities in Monmouth County, is often referred to as the Jewel of the Jersey Shore, due to its magnificent architecture and its reputation as a world-class hotel catering to the rich and famous at the turn of the century. After the sale of the hotel in the eighties, the property was re-developed and sold as luxury, year-round condominium units in 2003, leading to the formation of the Essex and Sussex Condominium Association, currently a luxury oceanfront residence for active adults 55 years and older. The building celebrated its Centennial year in 2014.

 The Essex & Sussex features 165 uniquely styled condominium residences, many offering breezy outdoor decks with expansive ocean views. Information about purchase or rental of studio and one-bedroom units may be obtained from local realtors.
