The historic 1911 John P. Forsythe House at 1601 Beach Ave. has undergone a magnificent, multi-million dollar transformation! Owners Patrick & Kristen McGonigal invite you to step inside to see their architectural and design fantasies brought to life which will inspire dreams for your own home.

This three-floor mansion has 8 bedrooms including a large master suite, 6 full and 2 half baths, an exercise room, office and spa, kitchen, living room, parlor and three porch areas, plus a spiral staircase and dry sauna. The Forsythe House was a high point of the East Cape May project in the early 1900s, which aimed to make Beach Avenue the most elegant street in Cape May. Come see how that promise was fulfilled and view the creative work of a dozen talented local and regional designers.

Each visitor will receive a full-color program book with information about the designers, products and vendors.

Admission: Adults: $30, Children (ages 3-12): $15
