After much planning, we began renovating this wonderful historic home in September 2016 and completed the project in time for the 2017 summer season. The current photos show the new entryway, reoriented interior staircase, refinished floors and renovated kitchen (which is absolutely beautiful)! New Bosch appliances (including a dishwasher), refinished floors, granite counters, hand dyed subway tiles and a wall of Marvin wood windows that fill the space with natural light. Bosch under-counter washer and dryer provide extensive counter space and an expanded feel. Upstairs you'll find a completely renovated and expanded bathroom with 18' exposed wood ceilings, 6 high windows and one full length window bathe this space in natural light. There is a large custom marble and glass shower with polished nickel fixtures. An antique chandelier completes
We could not be more pleased with the final result and our guests in 2017 were as well. We worked very hard to preserve the charm and historic integrity of the home while adding modern conveniences and updated amenities.
This classic victorian farmhouse is located on the first lot sold when the area was first incorporate in 1877 as the town of Sea Grove.

About Christine Carlson-Glazer
Having grown up in the area, my husband and I know what a special place the Point is. We left the area to attend college and graduate school and employment opportunities landed us in the Princeton area. Soon after our oldest was born, we purchased our Point home and, while we live in Princeton, our hearts are in the Point.
Christine Carlson-Glazer purchased this Farmhouse in 2001
Why Christine Carlson-Glazer chose Cape May Point
The Point is a small area to begin with, just 0.6 square miles, and when we began looking to purchase a home, our search area was even smaller. We wanted to be close to the circle (and General Store), Lake Lilly (where my husband proposed to me) and St. Peter's (our favorite beach). There were only a few streets we were interested in. We looked for more than a year, just when we turned our attention to other things in life, the home we have now came on the market in November 2000. I was ready to purchase, sight unseen because the location was just PERFECT, but seeing the home and feeling the charm confirmed this was our house. Since then, we have shared this special place with guests, friends and family.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Location is perfect, the porch amazing, stars on a clear night - shine like diamonds and the sunsets - so beautiful.

Delightful Cape May Point Weekend Get-away!
A very nice and tasteful remodel/upgrade to a quintessential Cape May Point Property. The owners did a very nice job with the upgrades to the house while honoring and maintaining the character of the original dwelling.
The furnishings are comfortable and inviting. The king bed in the master was a nice surprise. The shower was really nice!
The kitchen is well stocked for meal preparations of all sizes. The 5 burner gas stove provides ample area for cooking multiple pots/pans at once. There's also plenty of counter area for prep and staging. The sink is a modern version of the original sink that may have been installed when the home was built.
We didn't get to use the porch (it was about 10 degrees), looking foreword to morning tea and lunch on the porch when it's much warmer.
Overall, a very pleasant, airy, warm and inviting home.
Best of the Old and New--A Gem in Peaceful Area
Our stay was splendid, with comfortable and attractive furniture, a superb screened-in large porch, large screen "smart" TV with access to all the streaming services like Netflix and others. Christine, the owner, was so helpful in preparing us for our stay, including tips about area sites and eateries. The area, Cape May Point, is a place that time forgot--thankfully--a quiet and lovely oasis, just minutes from Cape May proper with its shops, sights, and restaurants. If you've never been here, you'll want to return again and again, as you will this wonderful house that combines the best of the old and new. Highly recommended!
Farm House Charm
We had a lovely time at the house. The renovations were awesome. The screened-in porch was a favorite. The owner sent an email with lots of helpful tips about the area, and clear directions for the house. The owner was also very prompt and helpful with any questions about the house. We would love to stay here again in the future.
Beautiful Home, Perfect Family Vacation
We stayed in this home for a recent family vacation with our teenage children and adult son. It is a beautiful home, very spacious and well maintained. New bathroom renovation is true luxury at the shore! We really loved the large screened in porch, perfect for gathering for meals, reading, and playing games. Location is also perfect distance to the beach as well as the General Store. My interaction with the owner Christine was always prompt and positive. She even contacted me that the propane tank needed to be filled, and arranged same day delivery during our stay! We will definitely book this home again when we return to the point.
My husband, myself and our two young sons stayed here for a week in July. The house was perfect for us and the recent renovations done are phenomenal. It was great staying in an older house but having updated kitchen and bathrooms. We spent most nights and mornings on the large screened in porch. Christine, the owner, was very responsive and easy to work with. She provided a lot of useful information about the house and the area. We would definitely book again next time we go to Cape May Point!
Beautiful and comfortable; convenient to everything
The house has been renovated and it is beautiful. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern yet charming. Everything in the house is lovely and comfortable - especially the beds! The large wrap around porch is perfect to have meals in and relax. There were bicycles and beach chairs included!! I can't wait to go back next year.
