You can leave the cars in the large parking lot on the property and walk to everything. The beach is five minutes away. Cape May's pedestrian shopping street, called, the Washington Street "mall" is five minutes away. Restaurants, bars, shops, a supermarket, liquor stores, etc., are all within a few minutes walk.

The property provides everything needed for a wide range of life-styles. The classic living and dining rooms are perfect for formal entertaining, but there is plenty of space for just "hanging out" - on the four large porches front and rear, in the second floor sitting room/TV room, in the new family room/playroom, the screened in gazebo, the covered and paved pergola, the children's playhouse, or anywhere in the large, fully-fenced garden. You can dine formally in the dining room, in the intimate screened dining porch adjacent to the dining room, or in the very large kitchen, the family room/playroom next to it, with a "pass-through" in between. You can also eat outdoors, in the screened in gazebo or the pergola.

This is the perfect place in Cape May - everything is within easy walking distance - or you can just stay at home and get lots of enjoyment there.
