About This Property

Do not miss this rare opportunity to own this amazing piece of Cape May Point history – the award-winning original Cape May Point schoolhouse built circa 1878, serving as a grade school for community children until 1931. The two-story Schoolhouse was transformed into residential use in the mid-20th century and has remained a private residence since that time. The site was lovingly and meticulously restored by the current owners using one of Cape May Points premier design/ build construction firms and is currently a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home with two living spaces inside w/ fireplaces and 3 outdoor seating areas with an outside shower and shed. The owners added modern touches and conveniences to bring a fresh feel to the home while retaining the original look and feel of the historic building, preserving its plentiful architectural details. The extensive list of exterior and interior renovations and upgrades to this historic property are detailed in the supplemental documents. You will be amazed at the lengths the current owners went to return this gem to its current grandeur! Its upside-down design features a second floor “Great Room,” with a breathtaking open plan concept with exposed beams; a large family dining area; chef’s kitchen with marble countertops and new appliances; including a Wolf range; and multiple seating areas, including one focused on the Great Room’s brick fireplace with custom mantle and walnut TV backer. The first-floor updates include custom wainscoting, fireplace surround, and TV backer. Off the Sitting Room is a master bedroom and en suite renovated master bath, two charming bedrooms for your family or guests, and a newly renovated full guest bath. The Schoolhouse includes spacious outdoor decks, including a new screened in porch with a custom mahogany roof, outdoor fan, and Edison lights, where you can enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktails often accompanied by the sound of the ocean’s waves crashing on the Point’s beaches. The Schoolhouse’s central location on a quiet street in the highly sought after Cape May Point is within one block of both beautiful Lake Lilly and the Pavilion Park, a short walk to iconic St. Pete’s beach, and only minutes from the historic town of Cape May. Only a very few historic homes remain in the Point, however, this is the one and only Schoolhouse. Offered furnished, the Schoolhouse is your opportunity to buy a true turnkey home by the sea like no other. Buy a piece of Cape May Point history and begin creating family memories that will last you a lifetime! More information in associated documents.
