About the Property

Three bedroom, 1.5 bath, great outdoor shower and amazing screened porch!

UPDATE: After much planning, we began renovating this wonderful historic home in September. For 2017, the home will feature a brand new full upstairs bath with double vanity, high ceiling and large glass shower. Downstairs renovations include relocation of the interior stairs, a new entry, new half bath, renovated and expanded kitchen and more open space and flow on the first floor. We are working hard to preserve the charm and historic integrity (all wooden windows, etc.) of the home while adding modern conveniences (a dishwasher) and updated amenities. New pictures will be coming when the work is completed. Expected completion date is March 30, 2017. For now, please check-out the recent photos and know that the rooms above will be new:)

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. Recapture a simpler time and place while creating loving memories that will last a lifetime. This historic home has three large bedrooms upstairs. The master has a king bed, a bose clock radio, and a television with DVD player. The larger guest room has a double bed and a twin with a trundle The third bedroom has a double bed. Also upstairs is a full bath with an original clawfoot tub/shower and antique pedestal sink. All of the beds have comfortable bedding and pillows and room darkening shades that allow for an excellent night's sleep. Downstairs, the kitchen has a Keurig coffee maker, toaster oven, range, professional Cuisinart cookware, and a small cafe table and two chairs that provides a cozy place to sit and chat. The large living room has two sofas, bookshelf with a nice selection of books for reading, cards, boardgames, and DVDs. There is also a Smart TV in the living room. The large dining room has a farmhouse table that opens to accommodate larger parties.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Cape May Point, NJ, USA:
The Point is a small area to begin with, just .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.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Location is perfect, the porch amazing, stars on a clear night - shine like diamonds and the sunsets - so beautiful.
