About the Property
House, 8 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 17-18)
This summer retreat provides the ideal location...steps to the beach, arcade, movies, and boardwalk shops and nearby restaurants. Only ten minutes on foot to the mall and other great restaurants.
The first floor features a spacious central hall and large comfortable living room with seating for a crowd, plus a gas fireplace, a game table, TV, stereo, VCR and DVD player. The new fully accessorized kitchen is state of the art, featuring two large side by side refrigerators with filtered water systems. There is a separate laundry room with washer dryer and back up storage plus a large second sink for filling lobster pots. A convenient breakfast room with a separate bar sinks ads to the versatility of the kitchen.
The dining room is spacious and grand with comfortable seating and a piano for playing during dessert and cordials.
Four comfortable and tastefully furnished bedrooms radiate off large center hallways on both the second and third floors with newly renovated baths on each floor plus a 3rd bath that is a charming throw back to the 1890's featuring an antique claw foot tub, plus a modern tiled shower added for convenience. Bedrooms offer TVs and all bedrooms have ceiling fans in addition to central air and heat.
The 2nd floor creates the charming antique feel of yesteryear with its lovely antique furnishings and oriental rugs. The queen bedroom on the right sports an antique four poster canopied bed facing the ocean while across the hall there are two antique four poster twin beds facing the water. This bedroom shares a connecting door with the rose colored king bedroom behind it. You will be lulled gently to sleep while listening to the sounds of the ocean waves lapping at the shore.
The third floor with its antique reproduction iron beds and white furniture offers a fresh and breezy beach decor. The ocean front room on the right features extra-long twin beds and is great for teens. There is a spare trundle mattress that can easily be moved into this room for 'slumber party' sleeping. Across the hall is a queen sized iron bed with a serene ocean view from bed! The 'yellow' room has two twin beds and a crib and is perfect for kids.
Cape May is one of the country's oldest seaside resorts and encompasses everything a beach resort should have; wide sandy beaches with life guards, extra wide streets and back country roads for biking, boardwalk arcades for the kids, movies, a paradise for bird watchers, outstanding restaurants and so much more.

Year Purchased: 1936
About the owner: My grandfather purchased this house in 1936 before I was born. I vacationed here with my family in the 1950's, and with my children in the 1990's. As you can imagine, this house has an amazing legacy ... there have been a ton of family celebrations here and lots of memories created by us and all of our repeat renters. We maintain it very well, and love to share it with others.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Wonderful location, directly on the beachfront, close to the center of things, but not commercially congested. Wide covered porches are like extra living space ... just great for hanging out. Primarily residential block of privately owned vacation homes (not investment rental properties) managed with loving care; you are right next to the beach entrance; can walk to the mall in ten minutes; the arcade, ice cream, shops, convention hall, & mini golf are just one block away, several 4 star restaurants are within walking distance.
