About This Property

How do you Cape May? This home offers a bit of beach living for everyone and anyone. Set aside the massive 8 BR 6.2 bath historic home from 1870…. With artisan woodworking, Bull Pine hardwood floors, updated mechanicals, etc, etc, etc. The home has it all…. Let’s talk about how you Cape May! Are you a beach bum? The home is walking distance to New Jersey’s #1 ranked beach. Stroll to the beach for sun, sand and surf for the day. Upon returning home, head straight to the back yard and clean up in one of the two spacious outdoor showers. Maybe you’d like to grab a beverage and relax on the paver patio before jumping in the shower? Or, are you a Cape May shopper? You can wander down the historic streets of the city and be at the heart of Cape May – the Washington Street Mall – within minutes. Peruse the quaint shops of the mall until your heart is content. Not going anywhere? Who doesn’t love to sit on a front porch in Cape May? And, there’s literally no better place to do it – enjoy the views of Columbia Avenue, complete with trolley tours, horse and buggy rides, etc. And, don’t be surprised if you make a friend or twenty as the friendly town is sure to say hello! Are you a foodie? Enjoy many of Cape May’s most famous restaurants – again, all within a short stroll. Head out every evening for a different cuisine experience and live the BYOB life that much of Cape May offers. Now…. You can do all of this – but, it wouldn’t be any fun doing it alone…. So, invite all of your friends and family to experience everything Cape May has to offer. You’ll have the space. The 8 BR’s currently hold approximately 15 beds. The dining room is big enough for the entire group – and the back yard is one of a kind in a historic beach community where every inch of real estate is typically covered by living space. Have you ever thought of running a B&B? The home currently holds a B&B license; however, it’s been a private residence for many years. Create a vacation experience for your guests while enjoying the private owner’s quarters in the back of the residence. Not into the B&B – use the home as a weekly rental, and still have your own space in the back. On the other hand, maybe you’ll rent out the apartment and enjoy the main living spaces of the home? No matter how you Cape May – there’s no better place to do it than 705 Columbia Avenue. Listing agent is related to seller.
