If you're an ocean lover, you're likely aware of the beautiful beaches that make up the Jersey Shore. At the southernmost point of the Shore is Cape May, known for its grand houses and old-time feel. Our Escape Pick this week is located in Cape May Point, a small town that is part of the larger municipality of Ocean City. 

The house has a beach-y feel, from its natural-tone shingled exterior to the open interiors to the deck with a view. The house has five bedrooms and two and a half baths, and is listed for $849,000. It has manicured grounds, a porch, and a deck off the second level.

Located about 160 miles from Manhattan, or a three-hour drive, the house is big enough for entertaining and hosting. Take a look around.

The impressive upper-floor deck looks out across the treetops.

This house is "upside down," according to the listing, meaning the bedrooms are on the first floor and the living areas and kitchen are on the second floor. This bedroom opens onto a porch.

The great room has vaulted ceilings and a gas fireplace.

The wraparound porch is handsome, and looks like a great place to have some morning coffee.
