Lewes house description

Welcome to the First town in the First State. The Dutch seamen landed here in 1631 and two blocks from the house is the Zwaanendael Museum to commemorate that landing. Located where the Delaware Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean, you can enjoy both bay and ocean beaches and the Lewes Rehoboth canal, which allows for access to the bay or ocean for fishing. Many of the homes in Lewes are from the 18th and 19th century and have been restored. The Historic Society created and maintains the well known Shipcarpenter Square, which has houses that have been moved from their original location and restored.

The Canal Front Park, dedicated in 2009, offers a 23 slip marina, waterfront boardwalk, Village Green, children's playground, kayak and canoe launch fishing pier, and performing arts gazebo. Explore the State Park trails and wildlife and escape to the Lewes Beach for a wonderful retreat, with parking and shower/restroom facilities for your convenience.

This home was built in 1907 and has been renovated several times. Enjoy the wrap around front porch and the back deck that overlooks the 'Secret Garden' and pond. This spacious 4 bedroom and 2 bath house has great charm. Enjoy the outdoor shower after a long day at the beach and cookout under the tiki torches and listen to the pond as you unwind. Walk to Lloyds Market, just one block away. This market is a mainstay in Lewes and has everything you need without ever having to move your car. Walk to 2nd street for great shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and the coffee and ice cream shop. Located just one mile to the beach and 2 miles to Rehoboth and the Tax Free Outlets.
