    Picturesque Marven Gardens, whose name is derived from "Mar"-gate and "Ven-tnor, is located on the line which divides Margate City and Ventnor City. It is noted for its luxurious homes; each one is unusual and distinguished in architectural design. An old English Tudor manse ajoins a colorful Spanish Colonial which, in turn, faces a French Chateau; all are encircled with winding sidewalks and driveways, adorned with gorgeous shrubbery and stately trees!
