Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Having grown up at the Jersey Shore (North Wildwood), I've never quite lost the 'sand in my shoes' so when the opportunity arose to purchase this lovely home just blocks from the beach in such a wonderful, year-round shore town, my family and I couldn't resist. We are a 'beach' family and vacationed in Cape May when our 24 and 20 year-old sons were younger. There was always something about Cape May that drew us there. The great beach, fantastic restaurants, art galleries, antiques and other specialty shops on and around the Washington Street Mall, the people, and I could go on and on. We're looking forward to enjoying and sharing our 'Shore Escape' for many years to come...
Why the Owner Chose Cape May: Cape May, by far, offers much more than any other Jersey shore town. From the Victorian era homes and WWII history to the scenic coastal beauty and protected wetlands and birding sites, it offers something for everyone! Our beach house is a short 5 blocks from a beautiful and protected beach as well as many of the great town's many attractions!
The Unique Benefits at this House: From our home you can walk to the beach, marina, The Fisherman's Memorial, Audubon Society Wildlife Center, world class restaurants, ice creams shops, and antique stores. We are a short walk or bike ride to the historic district.
