About This Property

Nestled in a private, cul de sac, you will find this large, traditional Cape May beauty! 401 Clay Street is a stately 3 story home with 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. From the moment you pull up to your new home you will be charmed by the mature trees and landscaping leading up to the wrap around covered porch. Enter the sun filled entry way and see all this home has to offer. On the first floor find the formal living room and library both with French doors opening to the covered front porch. As you continue into the home walk past the grand, open stairway into the gorgeous family room with a soaring cathedral ceiling. Tall Palladian windows frame the natural gas fireplace and lead out to the large deck overlooking your private back yard. Two columns define the dining room area. The smartly designed kitchen features a center island, lots of cabinets, a deep pantry, and more. A laundry room is off the kitchen which also has doors out to the covered side porch as well as into the attached garage. A full, first floor bathroom is off the entry foyer.

You will delight in finding a secret doorway through the walk-in closet that leads into the owners “man cave”. This room can be used for many purposes including an art studio with its deep sink, yoga studio, kid’s rec room, etc. This room has a stairway leading into the garage. Another 2 sunny bedrooms, both with window seats, are on the second floor as well as a very large hall bathroom.
