Welcome to a truly unique property with a rich history located in the heart of historic Cape May Court House! These grounds were originally purchased by the family in 1937 when much of the surrounding area was farmland and the Hyland Motor had yet to be built. Having been the constructed in stages, the first structure to exist on the land was the west-end garage, sealed and utilized for storage since 1988, in 1943. The breeze way, which currently houses the utility room, laundry, office, and several storage areas, was later added in 1945. The primary home with a cellar was then built in 1950 with a screened in porch off the eastern side of the structure. After inheriting the home in 1987, the current property owner(s) decided to build the 27 x 24 north-end garage, which sits five concrete block high with a 9.5 x 10 garage door clearance, in 1989. The screened in porch off the eastern side of the home was reconstructed into the present day dining room in 1999, with an anchored carport added in 2005. This beautiful three bedroom, one bathroom, two story, colonial style home has been lovingly cared for and meticulously maintained throughout the generations. Boasting fantastic curb appeal and a phenomenal location, this home presents an extraordinarily rare opportunity to leave a formidable mark on the next phase of development in historic Cape May Court House. The 90 x 344 property is zoned Town Professional allowing for outdoor enthusiasts, masons, RV enthusiasts, craftsmen, motorcyclists, boaters, and many more to enjoy the ability to support a nearly unlimited number of uses. In condensed summary, property features include Gorgeous all original knotty pine hardwood floors and plank throughout the interior of the home. The roof of the west-end garage and home was replaced in 2013 with top grade 5 8 GAF Timberline plywood ventilated shingles with 16 centers. New 40 gallon gas hot water heater tank in home, in cellar, installed 2018. New 100 AMP, 20 breaker fuse box in the cellar of home installed 2022. 240 AMP electric services the water pump, hot water heater, and dryer. The home is heated with natural gas by three mechanical gas wall heaters, and wall heater s gas line in the laundry can be teed to install a gas dryer. Oil tank was located under the front yard and removed in 2022 with all necessary remediation work accomplished and documentation available. Even during the worst of storms, the home has never had water intrusion in the cellar. The casing well is dug 90ft down, located in the rear fenced in yard, and the nearby stone marker indicates where the water line can be teed to run water to the north-end garage. The west-end garage features the only attic storage. The Eastern driveway is approximately 10 wide, dug out with 4 of milling from the carport back, dug out 6 with crushed concrete from the carport forward, and provides 20 of space separating you from the neighbor. The carport is anchored with galvanized industrial grade extension lengths with bolts holding the posts and tied into the brackets. The home s face to the street is kept clear of obstruction by running electricity through a service pole in the eastern rear of the property, which can also provide electricity to the north-end garage. The street edge of the front yard is guarded with 6 x 6 x 20 ground contact timber with reinforced penetrating rods. Property is being conveyed furnished, minus the flatscreen television in the living room. Property being sold as is and all certs needed by the township, or lender to close escrow, are the sole responsibility of the buyer.
