The Bayberry House

The Bayberry House

The Bayberry House is in the heart of Cape May’s beautiful historic district and is one of the oldest buildings surviving the town’s great fire of 1878. Originally a whaler’s cottage, it was expanded onto later to include a mansion for the mayor in 1800.

As with any structure close to the ocean, maintenance is an issue. Previous owners of The Bayberry House unfortunately did not keep up on repairs and consequentially, the building was in desperate need of attention. The architect’s goal was to rejuvenate the old Victorian while incorporating modern amenities and introducing a better flowing layout. Today, the home boasts a new kitchen, additional bedrooms, bathrooms and a more efficient layout. Every detail, from the original millwork, to the fresh, bright paint colors, to the furnishings, add to the timeless beauty of this historic home.
