Property Details

The "Thomas Leaming Home", built in 1706 is listed on the National and State Register of Historic Buildings. The grounds of the Leamings Run gardens can be accessed from this adjacent property where the unique home is situated. You might have passed this historic property and wondered over the white "original Cedar-sided" home with original Shutters, or caught a glimpse of the red outbuildings; one the old Root Cellar, and the other the original barn built in the early 1700's using wood gathered from shipwrecks. Just as in the case of the 1706 house, the barn was built using "peg" construction of the day. When entering the barn, look for the curved ship beams used in the build. The full loft has original floor boards 2 1/2" X 12" wide. This property is rich with the Cape May County history . Many will certainly appreciate that the house is the last existing "Whalers House" in the county. In addition to exploring by foot, don't miss the "drone tour" to examine the possibilities that this "unique" location has to offer. Just 1 stroll through the woods and meadows, past streams with wooden bridges, benches for quiet musing, and 2 ponds and a gazebo, past forests of bamboo and ferns and the surprise & wonder when you come upon one of the 3 log cabins that appear off in a hidden corner or in the midst of a private clearing !
