About This Property

One of a Kind Estate Priced BELOW Appraised Value!!! Modern amenities meet a step back in time. This home, which was originally built in 1772, and greatly expanded upon in 1998, has an abundance of rooms inside and even more entertaining space outside. On the main floor, the large country kitchen and great room are wonderful for indoor gatherings. Just off the great room is a 1st floor master suite, affectionally called the "Nautical Room", with its own private exterior entrance. At the front of the home is a formal parlor with vaulted ceiling, dining room with beamed ceiling, warming room with woodstove, additional sitting room and full bath, all of which lend to this home's rich history. Both front and back staircases lead to three upstairs bedroom suites. The master suite, aptly named the "Judges Quarters", has a walk in closet and full bath with whirlpool soaking tub. The "Antiques Suite" is complete with its own attached full bath. A unique two room suite, fondly named "Ye Old Farm Suite", finishes off the upstairs. It has a bedroom, separate sitting room/children's room and is completed by a full bath just outside the door. If you think the indoor space is great, you may find that the outdoor space is even more impressive! This 1 acre lot is bordered on two sides by over 50 acres of protected land, which of course means no one can ever build around you. The back side of the home is surrounded by a huge wrap-a-round covered porch. A free form inground pool with separate kiddie pool is surrounded by a dual level pressed concrete patio. Complementing the back yard pool oasis is a 2 room pool house with complete with a kitchenette, cathedral ceilings and a full bath! On the other side of the property is a garage with storage & a workshop. An additional outbuilding with electric & a loft is just waiting to be turned into a separate studio or office. New septic, dual zone heat pump & some electric have all been installed within the last 3 years. As well as items like, a new pool filtration system, solid oak flooring, painting, replacement of cedar siding (around porch area) and many other upgrades. Only 10 miles to Avalon or Sea Isle City beaches and 18 miles to the Historic Town of Cape May, this estate puts you mere minutes from every shore point in Cape May County. Why spend a million or more for a small island property when this spacious mainland estate is just waiting for its next owner to make it their own Cape May County dream home!
