Are you worried about climate change? Concerned that it will cause frequent flooding to the Jersey Shore?

It’s already happening in some places. Margit may or may not be one of them. But the good news is that you’ll be ready for any natural dishes outside if you buy the Margate high rise cottage for sale.

This is because it rises above its neighbors, as the photo above shows. This is because its owner had a new, higher foundation built under the house.
