About This Property

A magnificent townhouse steps to downtown and only 4 blocks to the beach. This unit was the showcase unit of the Franklin Street Church Cape May Designer Show House. A design team and architects were able to take full advantage of the interestingly shaped Gothic structure playing up ecclesiastical windows, gothic archways and soaring 15’ first floor and 27 foot second floor ceilings. The first floor includes striking entry foyer, sitting gallery, 3 individually unique bedrooms, state of the art bathroom, laundry facilities, and rear foyer with wet bar including wine refrigerator and Subzero cooling drawer and freezer leading to a private outside patio with privacy fence, grill, and storage. The second floor is simply breathtaking with large open great room with ornate wooden window frames, re-leaded stain glass windows, exposed truss beams, and the integration of the building's past with extraordinary modern finishes. Designer kitchen with subzero and wolf appliances, large granite island and two-toned custom Woodmode cabinetry, and notable tile work. The church bell tower is now a library and sitting room surrounded by windows and light. The master bedroom includes a pebble stone bathroom with full tile walkout shower. Each room is decorated with finest of décor, fabrics and colors all so pleasant.
