A historical gem for any occasion.
Designed by Horace Trumbauer, whose credits include the Philadelphia Art Museum, much of Duke university and much, much more, One Jefferson Street, Cape May is an outstanding celebration of turn of the century Victorian architecture with a strong solar flair for setting. From the designed solarium, which faces full South and passively heats up to 85 degrees on sunny days during the winter, to the formal dining room, One Jefferson reeks of style!
The original Butlers pantry, complete with beveled glass bar shelf doors, now opens to a modern kitchen.
Underfoot you'll walk on the original yellow pine heartwood or newly installed ceramic floor tiles, which mimic the original black and white diamond tiles, now removed.
The working fireplace is a Godsend in the winter, but, as Cape May is below the Mason-Dixon Line, there is now damper in the flue. After all, you are legitimately "in the Land of Dixie!"
One Jefferson Street, Cape May is the perfect place to slip away to for any occasion. Summer Beach Rental. Year Round Vacation. Executive Retreat. Weekend Getaway. Wedding Reception. Or just because it’s there.
On warmer days when the ocean breeze has slipped off, there are ceiling fans throughout the house to keep you cool as well as central air conditioning on the first floor, and individual "split a/c units" in each bedroom.
In winter, there is central heat with cast iron radiators – and a mansion sized fireplace in the living room to take off the chill.
With six large bedrooms, there’s enough room here for just about everyone. Spread out or cozy up. Hang out in the living room. Serve a feast in the elegant formal dining room. Or sit back and read all the sections of the Sunday paper in the solarium (heated of course for winter time relaxation).
