Description Description
Welcome to 1087 Shunpike Road, an antebellum wooden three story home located on the cusp of West Cape May/Lower Township. This wonderful home has so much to offer starting with the serenity of the 1.13 acre lot covered with flowering trees and tons of nature. There is enough nature for optimal privacy and enough cleared space for an in ground pool, cabana room, outdoor kitchen garage or an addition. This home is impeccably maintained. the roof is approximately two years old. The wood siding, trim, shutters and doors all recently painted. The original hardwood floors have been lovingly sanded and stained. No corner has been overlooked by the family who has painstakingly loved and kept this home pristinely for over 25 years. Starting with the covered front porch added by the seller and inspired by the original house plan, this home is comfortable and inviting. At the front you are greeted by a warm and cozy living room. Opposite the center hall stair is the dining room. At the rear of the first floor is the eat-in kitchen with a wood burning stove, a full bath with a walk in shower and stackable full size washer and dryer and an enclosed mud room right off of the covered patio area. On the second floor you will find three bedrooms (two of which have good closet space for a period home) and a full bath with a soaking tub. There are stairs to the third floor where there are two rooms which have been used by the family as sleeping quarters for their children and friends over the years. Currently standing room only in the center but if dormered more standing room could be gained. There is also a huge reach in attic behind these two rooms. Outside you will find an extended driveway for multiple cars, an outdoor shower, a tool shed and and a covered game room/eating area and a firepit. Although there is no formal air conditioning, this house stays unbelievably cool given the shade by the surrounding trees. None which compromise the structure or roof. Some of the finest points of the home are the proximity to Cape May City and the beaches. You are soooo close but in such a QUIET location. The house sits up nice and high on the property protecting it from water intrusion or flooding and this home has a rich history. Dating back to 1850 there are many stories these walls have heard. The seller did replace the septic system within the past three years. The house was converted back to a single family from a duplex in the 1990's so there are two electric panel boxes and two electric meters. Plenty of opportunity for expanding.
