Cape May house description

Enjoy the ocean views and breezes. Hear the waves crashing on the surf. Rock away your cares on the large wrap around porch. As featured on the 2011 Private Homes Tour by the esteemed Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts, this house offers all the modern conveniences of today while retaining the historic charm that is Cape May!
Ideally located just steps from the beach and a few short blocks into town, you can park your car in one of 2 spaces behind the house, or on the meter-free street, and walk to all that Cape May has to offer.
After a day on the fabulous Queen Street Beach come home to this cozy, comfortable and well furnished home. Everything you need is provided in this generously equipped beach cottage. The two zone air conditioning and forced hot air heating systems keep you comfortable year round.
Get ready for an evening of fine dining at one of the many restaurants in town or cook like a chef at home in the gourmet kitchen.
Ready to turn in? The master bedroom has a King bed and a sitting area with it's own TV/VCR. The adjoining room- “The Rose Room” has a queen bed. Across the hall is the “Mahogany Room” and the “Green Room”, each with 2 twin beds. The Green Room has a balcony/porch with views of the Cape May skyline. Soak up some rays here in the afternoon, or just get away for some quiet time. There is a large full bathroom with a tub and shower to serve this level.
On the third floor there is a gigantic room which we refer to as the “Dorm”. The Dorm offers a king size bed, a full size bed, and 3 twins, which is perfect for the whole family with young children, or the group of kids and their “slumber party”. There is a cot in here as well, which can be moved to any room that you wish.
The “Purple Room” sports a full size brass bed and a sitting area. The “Blue Room” has a full size bed and an upholstered chair.. There is a spacious full bath on this level with a claw foot tub and a hand held shower spray.
Outside there is an additional hot and cold shower plus a dressing room with lighting, mirror, and seating.
At mealtime you can cook like a chef on the pro-series 6 burner range. The gourmet kitchen has everything you need to show off your skills. And two full size refrigerators to hold all of your groceries (and beer!). Serve up meals in the formal dining room that seats 14 at one table! Or choose from 3 more dining spots- on the porch the dining set seats 6 (or pull up extra chairs provided to seat 10!), in the breakfast room- room for 6.
Cook out on our gas or charcoal grills (we offer both), and dine at the outdoor picnic table with room for 8 (at least).
There is a “Butler's Pantry” with a sink off the dining room which we use as a “Wet Bar”. Fix cocktails like a pro. Ice buckets, blenders, smoothie machine, ice crusher, pitchers and shakers are provided for your convenience.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Cape May is the original resort and has so much more to offer than just the fabulous beaches! This place is very family friendly with so much to do in an old fashioned atmosphere. Rockwellian describes it well. It's also a very romantic place to enjoy with your special someone. You can take a horse drawn carriage to dinner, or just for a tour around town. Enjoy world class dining and shopping, historic home tours, ghost tours, Victorian architecture- the whole city is on the National Historic Register! There are Vineyard and Brewery tours, Jazz festivals , Birding (one of the top 10 birding spots in the world!), hike the nature trails thru seaside meadows, and do not forget to visit the free incredible Zoo! There are many boat charters to watch whales and dolphins, or perhaps some deep sea fishing? Visit the art galleries, especiallly the Pierson Gallery on Washington Street, cycle around town with bike and surrey rentals, or take a horse and carriage tours, explore the stress reducing art of porch sitting! Walk the promenade, check out the craft shows, cruises and eco- tours, marinas, nightlife and entertainment, casinos, concerts, theater, music.

                  Visit the Lobster House and make sure to check out the history as told in the many photos that line the walls in the lobby.

                  Swains is not just a hardware store! They have many unique housewares from glassware and serving pieces to linens and aprons and much more!

                  Higbee's Beach is a great place to do a little off roading bay side....shhhhh, its a secret..

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1951

                  About the owner: My grandfather purchased this great property in 1951. Our family has been fortunate to enjoy it ever since. I have been coming to Cape May since I was born, and we love it more and more each year. I live in Maryland with my lovely wife of 28 years, and my golden retriever, Jolly.

                  Why the Owner Chose Cape May:
                  I bought into the family beach house in 2000 to insure that it remain in the family for years to come. I have been coming here for over 50 years and I hope to continue that tradition. With so much to do besides the beach I never get bored. When I can't swim or fish there is always something going on, like the Jazz Festival, or historic home tours. I enjoy the nature conservancy, the museums, and the Physic Estate's changing exhibits. The dining in town is very good, too!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The wrap around porch is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The house is close to everything so I can walk to shopping, restaurants, the beach.... I don't have an ocean at my front door at home. There is nothing like throwing a line in the surf and hauling out a big striper for dinner. And when the fish aren't biting the Lobster House Seafood market is the best anywhere!
