Lewes house description

See this adorable and spacious 3BR, 2BA home in the historic district of Lewes!

Located right in the heart of town, everything is an easy and pleasant stroll from your front door. Walk to Second Street (less than 2 blocks) and browse the shops, stop for Sussex County's best margarita at Agave and then top it off with a double-dipper from King's Ice Cream Shop! Or walk down to the canalfront park to see the yachts and the fishing boats, just three blocks away. If you are looking to be in-town, this is the perfect location for you and your family or friends.

An easy bike ride less than a mile away is Lewes Beach. The Bay Beach offers a beautiful wide, soft-sand beach that will surprise you if you've never been there before. Calm waters make it perfect for little ones or those not looking for the big waves.

More interested in ocean swimming, surfing or surf-fishing? Cape Henlopen State Park is just a mile and a half beyond that - throw your boards and rods in the jeep, pack a cooler and spend the day on the beach.

The new, renovated kitchen with granite countertops, gas cooking and stainless steel appliances is open to the dining area and living room. Off of the kitchen is the very spacious family room with comfortable sofa (pull-out, if needed) and loveseat gathered near the 42' high-definition flat panel above the mantel.

Two bedrooms (one with a queen, the other with two twins) are located on the first floor off the living room with a shared, newly tiled hall bath and the third bedroom (queen) is the master suite on the second floor, with multiple closets, 32' LCD, and a private, full bath with tub.

Brick patio off of the family room, perfect for an evening grilling at home or sipping a cold drink while the sun goes down.

Every room has been painted, furnished and decorated with the utmost in care and attention to detail.

Experience the very best of what Lewes has to offer!

***WEEKLY ONLY DURING SUMMER SEASON, SAT-SAT, NO EXCEPTIONS. 5% CITY OF LEWES TAX APPLIES TO ALL RENTALS. $100 CLEANING FEE FOR ANY RENTAL LESS THAN ONE WEEK. WE DO NOT ACCEPT CCs***

              The City of Lewes is a historic town, with lots of charm and character. Walking and biking reign as the most useful means of transportation throughout the town, with many interesting sights to see and places to visit. The bay beach is an easy bike ride and Cape Henlopen state park is a vast preserved area for ocean lovers and campers alike.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: We are both in the real estate business in Wilmington, Delaware, just an hour and 20 minutes from Lewes. Our favorite things to do are going to the beach, seeing our friends and family and enjoying life! We have two young children and we are excited to be able to share the wonderful things that the beautiful and historic town of Lewes has to offer with our little ones and hope they grow up loving Lewes and the coast as much as we do.

              Why the Owner Chose Lewes:
              We live close-by and are big fans of the small-town feel of Lewes. And of course, the beach!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              One of the best things about Lewes is that during the height of the summer months you never have to go out to Route 1 and face the traffic once you are here. Everything you need is within walking or biking distance - you can't beat that.
