Property Description

Built in 1884 by Admiral McMakin for his family, this wonderful three story side by side Victorian home offers you the opportunity to be on highly sought after Decatur Street. Enjoy your morning coffee and watch passersby on the quintessential Cape May front porch. As you walk into the foyer you are greeted by the Victorian staircase that leads you to the entrance for the second and third floor unit and down the hall is the doorway to the first floor unit. The first floor is a one bedroom unit with a bathroom; the spacious living room has a dining area with a table for four to six people and at the back is the L-shaped kitchen and bathroom. This downstairs unit would be ideal as an owner’s quarters and the upstairs unit could continue as a rental. Up the stairs, you will find the spacious second and third floor unit which boasts high ceilings and has an abundance of Victorian charm. The open floor plan of the living and dining area opens into the spacious eat-in kitchen that has been remodeled with ample counter and cabinet space. On the second floor there is one bedroom, bathroom and a laundry closet. The third floor has three more bedrooms and a full bathroom. The Seller has made updates to the gas fireplaces, installed a high efficiency furnace, updated the windows throughout the house, added insulation to the exterior walls and updated the plumbing, electrical wiring and gas lines. The exterior of the home features a fenced in yard with an area to grill and entertain and an outdoor shower to clean off the beach sand. This property is centrally located and sits between the beautiful Cape May beaches and the finest restaurants and shops our town has to offer. Enjoy the first floor unit while enjoying the income of the second and third floor. Whether you want to utilize this as a single family home to live in year round, or as a rental investment property, or BOTH, this incredible one of a kind historic home gives you options.
