Description Description
Welcome home to 704 Benton Avenue across the street from the graceful porches of the Chalfont Hotel. The house is just two short blocks to the beach and within walking distance to the center of town. Relax with a cup of tea or work from your laptop on the large front covered porch with beautiful awnings. From here, you can smell the ocean and feel the breezes while watching an occasional horse drawn carriage. This Classic Cape May cedar shake home sits on an oversized lot and allows the next homeowner to visualize the many ways the huge side yard with Gazebo can be used for fun in the sun. Entering the home, to the left of the front door you will find first of two living rooms; this one has a fireplace. There is a large dining room with seating for 12, a generous kitchen with subzero refrigerator, double ovens, gas top range and center island, a laundry/mud room and entrance to the back yard with outside shower. On the right side of the home is a powder room and spacious family room with cathedral ceiling. Moving upstairs you will find all the bathrooms have been newly and beautifully renovated.

The third floor includes two more large bedrooms and hall bath to total five bedrooms under the main roof for family and guests. One bedroom has the potential space to add an extra full bath. For the basement lover we have a large one! No known water intrusion in the past, so the current use is a workshop, storage for extra items in the home, and a second refrigerator.

Above the garage is a bonus one bedroom, one bath in-law suite with kitchen, heat and air-conditioning for a total 6 bedrooms on one stunning estate style property. Other amenities include parking for 4 plus cars, four zone gas heat, central air on the first floor, and individually controlled split system units in every other room.
