The Franklin Hughes House, so named for sitting proudly at the corner of Franklin and Hughes Streets in the Cape May Historic District. This 1860s Victorian-style home offers a rare opportunity to own a true piece of history. Rarely offered for sale, with only a handful of owners in the last hundred years, this residence has recently been meticulously renovated top to bottom and was featured in NJ Design Magazine. The first floor features a living room with stunning custom window treatments and an elaborate coffered ceiling. The renovation incorporated a pantry, tiled full bath, eat-in kitchen featuring a La Cornue range and custom hood, designer wall coverings, and numerous other architectural and decorator touches. The formal dining room is the perfect setting for large family gatherings. This elegant room is furnished with a custom banquet table and coordinating sideboard and hutch. The coffered ceilings continue into the dining room, which also features exquisite custom window treatments. The second floor includes three bedrooms, a comfortable sitting room, and a tiled full bath. The third floor offers two adorable bedrooms under the eaves with extraordinary touches like tufted wall coverings and built-in cabinets. Enter the property through a charming picket fence and marvel at the collection of colorful plants. A winding brick path leads to a private patio perfect for morning coffee. The front porch is draped with wisteria and overlooks the stunning gardens, providing an ideal spot to relax on the porch swing and watch the horse and carriages go by. A spacious garden shed provides storage space for bikes and beach gear. The Franklin Hughes gardens are always a main attraction on Cape Mays garden tours. Both town and beach are an easy stroll away. This home is being conveyed fully furnished minus a few personal items. Walk to town and beach. Parking for two cars.
