Back on the market! If these walls could talk! This is your chance to own a piece of local history here in beautiful Townbank, NJ. Legend has it that this beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bath home was once an integral part of the whaling community in the early 1900s, as a dance hall. The ideal location, just 2 short blocks to the beaches of the Delaware Bay, made it an easy walk for the whaling crews seeking entertainment. Now the beaches here are only used for sun-bathing, swimming and launching kayaks, paddleboards and sailboats…and are home to the most beautiful sunsets in the state. Once you enter the property through the custom ironwork gate, it will feel like you are in your own private world. The house sits on a double lot AND comes with a 3rd full lot behind it. The double lot is fully fenced, meticulously landscaped and upgraded with a large pavered driveway, 2.5 car detached garage, high quality playground equipment strong enough for adults, mature flowering and fruit bearing trees and shrubs, and colorful annuals blooming from February through October. The planted pond attracts a great variety of local and migratory birds, butterflies, dragonflies, hummingbirds. The rear lot has an RV hook-up, storage shed and plenty of room for anything you can dream up! The outdoor entertainment is really where this property shines: your guests will love taking a dip in the large, heated saltwater pool while you whip up a meal in the outdoor kitchen on the covered deck. Inside, the former dance hall is now a spacious living room complete with a massive brick fireplace, cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors, 4 skylights and recessed lighting. The chef’s kitchen combines the charm of yesteryear: exposed wood beams and iron work, with today's bells and whistles: 6 burner Dacor gas stove with two convection ovens, huge central island, plenty of built-in storage and a walk-in pantry. Entertaining guests is a delight with the open concept flow from the living room, dining area, kitchen and the 3 seasons room/enclosed porch. There is even a “secret loft” between the kitchen and the master bedroom that has been used as a reading nook, kids play area and music station for parties. The east wing of the house has 2 bedrooms serviced by a hall bath, and a tranquil master suite with walk-in closet and a state-of-the-art bathroom: luxurious triple shower (rainfall, side jets, handheld wand), huge vanity and mirror, lots of storage and electrical outlets, excellent fan system, multiple lighting options and programmable heated floor. The west wing of the house is an in-law or guest suite with a bathroom, bedroom, full kitchen and separate entrance, and a large “media room” that can be an office, second living room or a 5th bedroom. Historic Townbank is located 5 minutes from the Cape May Ferry, 10 minutes from Cape May, 15 minutes from The Wildwoods, and is near lots of great restaurants and shopping in North Cape May. This is a primary residence, advance notice for showings is appreciated. Exclusions list available upon request. Being sold "As Is"
