About This Property

Come see the Corwin House, a Queen Anne Victorian, built by Frederick Sutton in 1900. Mr. Sutton was a developer and a Marine Bank Director who died on the Titanic. He built a number of these homes throughout the Wildwoods at that time. This was the summer home of Elizabeth, NJ accountant, John Corwin. It was purchased in 1938 by Michael and Elizabeth Ciampi of Philadelphia at which time Michael converted it into a rooming house. The house was passed down from their children to their grandchildren. In the 1940's, the turret caught fire but it was extinguished before the fire spread. A flat roof was installed after the fire and the turret was replaced by the Ciampi's grandchildren in 2008. This Victorian gem is priced below assessed value and is being sold "AS IS WHERE IS". It is now ready and waiting for your own personal touches to restore it to its former glory. The heated ground floor has a one bedroom apartment with a living room, kitchen and bath as well as a studio apartment with a living/bedroom combo, kitchen and bath. The heated first floor main living area has a lovely front porch, living room, dining room, eat-in kitchen with 3 year old appliances, rear deck, one bath and laundry area. The second floor has 3 bedrooms, one of which is a studio type unit with a two burner electric range, and one bath shared by all rooms. The third floor has three bedrooms and one half bath shared by all rooms. The second and third floors are not heated.
