Property description

The house was built in the mid 19th century with renovations in 2001 and 2009. We are located in the middle of the Lewes historic district with walkable charm for the entire family. Stroll to King's Ice Cream and The Chocolate Factory with the kids. Shop on Second Street. Short walk to Lewes-Rehoboth Canal and to the town beach, and a short bike ride to Cape Henlopen State Park for the incredible beaches there.

The house is perfect for family living, and has been enjoyed by many for family reunions and get togethers. The house is very private and is furnished with antiques and casual furniture, oriental rugs and paintings by local artists--you will feel at home, not in a rental.

The house lives like a modern house, with an open kitchen/breakfast nook/TV area, and separate formal dining and living room areas--great for privacy and togetherness at the same time. Everyone's favorite part of the house is the back porch--a Key West style screen porch with round dining table plus casual reading and relaxing area with seating for four. The backyard is completely private garden with a secluded hot tub in the corner--a must see.

There are two master suites--one on the ground floor level (with grab bars in bathroom) and one on the second floor. There are two additional bedrooms on the second floor--one with a queen bed and one with twin beds. One the top floor is a special kids retreat with a double bed, a twin bunk, and a smaller kid's bunk bed (decorated by our children for kids to escape from their parents).

House has bikes and a kayak for guests to use, and is fully-equipped for a great short or long holiday.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We bought this house in Lewes after years of renting in the Rehoboth area. We spent a week in Lewes and were captivated by its charm, and by the amazing beaches at Cape Henlopen. Our daughters love to bring their friends down for visits, and the house has been a very popular spot for our family reunions and get-togethers. We still marvel at the recreational opportunities here (cycling, running, tennis, golf, kayaking, and surfing) and at the beautiful small town full of great restaurants we can walk to.

Why the Owner Chose Lewes:
We fell in love with the quiet charm of Lewes. Everything is so close, and you never even need to get in your car. Our kids walk all around town by themselves to shops, to market, and to get food and King's Ice Cream. The beaches are like Cape Cod with wildlife and beautiful dunes, not like most of the mid-Atlantic.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Very quiet oasis at the beach. Private rear yard feels like Key West. House is furnished like a house, not a rental, with antiques, oriental rugs and some paintings by local artists. You can walk to the market, the drug store, and the Chocolate Factory or King's Ice Cream plus a wide selection of restaurants. Feels like Nantucket or Cape Cod here.
