Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: My Love for the Natural Beauty of Cape May Island and the Magnificent Atlantic Ocean Brought Me Here twenty two Years Ago. The Uniqueness of Cape May as a Historic Landmark City Next to a Nature Reserve Brings Visitors to This Special Remarkable Area of the East Coast. Special Friends Were Met Along the Way. A CD Called 'Cape May Preludes' by Jackson Berkey of Manheim Steamroller Has Made Colvmns by the Sea a Well Known Destination and Brings the Feeling of This Special Place Into the Music Realm.

Why the Owner Chose Admiral Estates, Cape May, NJ, USA:
I Bought This Property Because of the Quiet Oceanfront Location at the Eastern End of Cape May.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Reading on the Front Porch is a Special Pastime, Bird Watching on the Rooftop Deck is Fascinating and the Sunsets Are Wonderfully Breathtaking. Watching the Surf from the Porch and Being Steps to the Sand Has Made This a Special Place to Make Memories.
