Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Welcome to the Mooring, a magnificent beach block mansion in Historic Cape May. This elegant Second Empire boasts ten large bedrooms with en-suite baths, a formal dining room which comfortably seats 16 and a formal parlor with French doors opening to a spacious front porch. There is also an attached, private, 1000 square foot apartment. This stunning home has been operated as a successful B&B for 27 years by the same owners, who have chosen to open only during the summer season. It could certainly be purchased to continue in that capacity should that be your dream. (And that apartment is the most luxurious owner’s quarters in town!) Currently licensed for 12 rooms and 2 apartments, with a massive amount of storage space and ample parking for 10 cars the development possibilities are limited only by your imagination … The ground floor features 11-foot ceilings, original ceiling medallions, plaster crown molding, and gorgeous heart pine floors. Walking through the double front doors, you enter the grand hallway with its massive 7-foot mirror and spectacular open center hall staircase. To one side are the formal living and dining rooms. A small kitchen (ideal as a service kitchen/bar or butler’s pantry) is just off the dining room. One of the two ground floor bedrooms is across the hall from the living room. With a bright bay window seating area, French doors opening to the porch, and an updated tile bath, this is the ideal space for a family room, office, or library. The second ground floor bedroom (currently a self-contained suite with kitchenette), has its own entrance through double French doors from the side porch. Imagine this space as a fabulous chef’s kitchen, opening seamlessly to the dining room via the original pocket doors! Up the grand staircase, the second floor presents another large central hallway with its own massive mirror, and four bedrooms (one a two-room suite). Each bedroom has its own bath. The suite and the large bedroom across the hall share the wide second floor porch with ocean view! Up the second flight of stairs, the third floor also contains a spacious hallway and four bedrooms, two with an ocean view, all with en-suite bath. The separate apartment/owner’s quarters spans two floors, with a large living room, kitchen/dining area and half-bath downstairs, and four rooms and two full baths upstairs. There is a large back deck off the living room, and a wee deck off the smallest of the second floor rooms. This historic mansion – bright, airy and continuously cooled by ocean breezes – has been impeccably cared for over the past 27 years. It is unlike any other property available in Cape May. It will be a showpiece home for the discerning buyer with a tasteful eye and an appreciation for the quality, craftsmanship, and detail which were hallmarks of the time it was built and which you rarely find today.
