“The Abbey” – Elegant Victorian Villa
This historic gem is the most photographed home in Cape May. Built in 1869 by a wealthy Pennsylvania coal baron, John McCreary, its architecture is a mix of Victorian elegance meeting Gothic Revival. Architect Stephen Button designed this beautiful Gothic villa to feature a 60′ tower. He also designed her with stenciled and ruby glass arched windows.
This home features 4 large public rooms, 9 bedrooms and 9 1/2 baths ( a cool Atlantic Ocean mixture of double beds, queen, and single beds), all richly decorated with antiques, chandeliers, mahogany trim, beautiful wallpaper and Persian rugs. Shaded verandas and porches offer relaxing spaces for reading, watching the horse-drawn carriages go by or enjoying the summer breezes. Her location in the heart of Cape May’s historic district puts you within walking distance of great shopping, restaurants, art galleries and, of course, our won the cool Atlantic Ocean.
There is on-site parking for 10 cars and a large side yard for BBQs, games, weddings and family gatherings and more. A large modern kitchen renovated in 2012 will feature granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry and new flooring. A second galley kitchen will also feature stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and custom cabinetry. All bathrooms have undergone renovation as well.
