Historic Southern Colonial sits in the heart of Cape May Court House just a block from the Library and Court House on a half acre corner lot with beautifully landscaped grounds and gardens. This home was built in 1901 by Dr. J. Morgan Dix with a separate entrance from the wrap around front porch into his home office, which still exists as a home office and cozy den. Having been passed down through four families over the years, it has been lovingly restored and renovated, and is one of the most unique properties in this historic town. A welcoming entrance hall leads to a formal living room, dining room, and into a spacious great room with cathedral ceiling along with a gas fireplace and dining area, custom cabinets, wet bar, off a cozy kitchen that leads to a three-season porch overlooking garden paths, gazebo and pond. Beyond that, there is a vegetable garden and large storage building behind a detached garage, for up to three cars, off of a gravel driveway from Church Street and Boyd with full basement access and a garden entrance to the expansive side lawn. On the second floor is a large master bedroom suite and bath, two guest rooms and bath along with an enclosed second floor porch sitting area, which becomes a greenhouse area for house plants in the winter and room for a Christmas tree too. Stairs to the third floor rooms, currently utilized for storage, offer possibilities for additional bedrooms and bath. There is a first floor powder room laundry room and rear stairs to a hideaway fourth bedroom, a library and a study. This area was most likely used originally for maids’ quarters. Central air, gas heat, and modern amenities blended to enhance the history of this home and spectacular grounds in a perfect location to town, shopping, schools, hospital and just minutes from the Stone Harbor beaches too... a real treasure!
