About This Property

Built in 1915, Cape May's remarkable 2008 Show House -- the "Otis Townsend Residence" -- is on the National Historic Register as Cape May's premier example of the Arts and Crafts style. Lovingly and tastefully renovated, the home's countless impossible-to-reproduce design and architectural details have been combined with mechanicals, fixtures, and design/decor which are impressively clean and current. Six beautiful bedrooms, 3.5 delightful bathrooms, and three different open concept living areas for friends and family to gather. Large, two-level front porch with teak swings and furnishings for enjoying evening cocktails plus a rear deck for lounging and grilling. Fifth property from one of the most wide-open beaches in Cape May in a beautiful residential area full of gorgeous homes but only a 15-minute walk along the Promenade to the historic center of the city. Sold stunningly furnished/decorated with nearly all pieces (furniture and furnishings) from Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, Ethan Allen, and the Coastal Living Collection by Stanley. You have to see this. Truly the best of all worlds.
