On the Market at the Shore: Expanded Cape in Longport

This throwback to the Jersey Shore of years past is picture-postcard pretty and very well maintained. You could bring it into our time if you want. But we bet you won't.

“Charming” accurately describes this Depression-era Cape Cod in Longport. But contrary to agent-speak, here, it doesn’t mean “small.” It’s located at 2707 Atlantic Ave., Longport, N.J. 08402 | South Jersey Shore Regional MLS images via Long & Foster Real Estate

Isn’t this just the cutest house you ever saw?

Looks like something out of a storybook, right? Or perhaps it belongs on a picture postcard.

This late-Depression-era Cape Cod in tony Longport serves as a reminder of what summer at the Shore once looked like.

But don’t let its picture-postcard facade fool you: This house actually has some room, as the aerial view above should make clear. It’s been added to over the years and has enough bedrooms to handle your family and guests.

If you’re looking to update your memories of Shore summers past, you won’t go wrong by buying this classic Cape and renovating it. However, if you’re like many Shore-house buyers nowadays, you might be inclined to create new memories of your own by replacing this classic Cape with a brand-new house. Personally, I’d rather you took the updated nostalgia trip, but given what Shore real estate goes for these days, I’m sure the urge to tear down will be powerful for many.
