About This Property

Introducing to the market The J. Spicer Leaming House built in the late 1800’s and replete with many original finishes throughout. This home has many lovingly restored features with attention to historical accuracy and detail.

This home has appeared in countless publications and artforms and is famous in her own right. Enter the home from a charming Mahogany front porch where you will spend many days and nights enjoying your gardens and Hughes street which is quintessential Cape May. It has gorgeous Victorian homes, the sweet clip-clopping of the horse and buggy and of course the gas light street lights. There is a formal living room to your left with beautiful hardwood flooring and an original black marble fireplace mantle. To the right is the family room with wood burning white marble fireplace for enjoying Cape May on those chilly winter nights by the fire. Off the family room is the sunroom filled with light and overlooking the backyard. This is open to the formal dining room big enough for Thanksgiving dinner and many summer nights with friends and family. There is a whimsical library/office off the dining area with solid wood built-in cabinetry and a dramatic chandelier. The kitchen area is adjacent to the back porch. It would be an easy expansion to include the back porch as part of the kitchen if one wanted to expand. There is a half bath on this floor and access to the full basement. The second floor features a full-size master bedroom with a private bath and walk-in closet. There is a roomy guest bedroom with access to a sweet covered porch. Another guest bedroom on this floor is currently used as a den but has a closet and access to a sleeping porch. A Jack and Jill bathroom services these two bedrooms. Moving to the third floor you will find two enchanting bedrooms and a large bathroom with soaking tub. The yard offers a soft grassy area as well as a brick pavered patio for grilling and hanging out. Don’t miss the carriage house with its own sleeping area and half bath.
