Brick sidewalks, Alaskan yellow cedar and original white porch benches are just a part of what awaits you in this beautifully restored and renovated 1920s Dutch Colonial, known as the Grey Owl. Upon entering the house you will notice brand new solid wood floors, the central staircase with a window seat on the landing, a half bath and an under stair’s closet - a perfect hideaway for children and a favorite book. This home is ideal for entertaining as it has a formal living and dining room with seating for eight to ten people. The family room catches the morning light, but is also a good spot at night to have a drink from the wet bar. Through the dining room, with views of the historic Chalfonte Hotel, you will find the luxuriously renovated kitchen. The soapstone countertops, custom white inlay cabinetry and high-end stainless steel appliances are everything the home chef could desire. The kitchen features a Wolf gas range and hood, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, KitchenAid dishwasher, a separate Butler’s pantry and an area with the LG ThinQ stackable washer and dryer. Gaze out the kitchen windows to the crushed blue stone patio and teak furniture, the perfect spot for al fresco dining. Two spacious bedrooms, beautifully refinished wooden floors, hall bath and large master suite await you on the second floor. The hall bath includes a tub shower and Waterworks vanity with wooden base. The master suite with it’s window seat and his and hers closets features a spacious bathroom with a walk-in glass shower and marble tile accents, Restoration Hardware double bowl vanity and inlaid medicine cabinets with a separate toilet area. The master suite has its own private deck where you can hear the sound of the waves crashing on the beach while enjoying the colors of our famous Cape May sunsets. To top it off, the third floor of this Dutch Colonial is bright and airy with its two bedrooms, white painted floors, original quarter-round windows, and a spacious hall bath. The bath has an Italian tile floor, Waterworks vanity and the original free-standing, porcelain glazed tub. Attention to detail was paramount in this renovation project; from it’s Circa and Visual Comfort light fixtures to the Jeld-Wen restoration windows and it’s high-end furnishings there has not been a detail missed. Updates include brand new siding, new gutters & copper flashing, a new roof over the family room, Jeld-Wen windows, updated electrical and plumbing, brand new kitchen, tankless water heater, updated HVAC, including all new ductwork and insulation. The fireplace has been converted to gas but requires insert. The property is completely fenced in and boasts an outdoor shower and has off-street parking. This home is a turn-key investment property with proven revenue as it has been successfully rented in the 2021 season and throughout the fall. The only thing you’ll have to do when you buy the Grey Owl is enjoy all it, and Cape May, has to offer.
