About This Property

Welcome to 718 Columbia Ave. in the heart of the Historic District. The Davis-Schellenger House was originally built around 1876 by William S. Schellenger, a carpenter and boat builder. A complete renovation is currently underway that will give the new homeowners all the modern amenities while maintaining the historic character and charm that is a part of Cape May. Throughout the home there are historic touches, from the original floor to ceiling doors that lead onto the spacious front porch to the original floors that are being restored. Once completed, the home will consist of two living areas, an open concept chef’s kitchen along with room for dining, mud room, laundry room, first floor powder room, and six (6) bedrooms that all boast their own en-suite bathrooms (one with a private sleeping porch). Other items included in the renovation include all new electrical service, plumbing and three (3) zone HVAC system. Property has ample parking and is a short distance from both the beach and the pedestrian mall. The current owners are lovingly renovating and restoring this home to the jewel it was meant to be. A complete spec sheet along with architect plans are available.
