Spectacular New Designer Show House
If you like Designer Show Houses, Cape May’s got a great one this summer. A wonderful couple (Ioanna Iliopolis and Tom Cataldo) has
just built a beautiful new house on Washington Street. It is patterned after the grand Tuscan Villas of Cape May – the Southern Mansion and the Mainstay Inn. A Tuscan Villa is a cube-shaped house with a low hipped roof and a cupola And this new one, Cavalier Cottage, is a very cute example.
MAC (our local non-profit organization) didn’t have a designer show
house last year, and is thrilled with the generosity of the owners. All summer long you can visit the show house, and combine your visit with a lunch at the Carriage House Café at the Physick Estate. Each room was conceived by a different designer. Most are from Cape May, but also they also include designers from Haddonfeild and Devon, Pennsylvania. Consider visiting us this summer and combining the Victorian interiors at Leith Hall and the Physick Estate with the new interiors at Cavalier Cottage.
