Lewes house description

Relax in charming historic Lewes, Delaware in this 1920s Arts and Crafts house that is just steps to independent shops, boutiques, and restaurants on Second Street. Only a few blocks to waterfront canal winding through this former fishing village. Half a mile to the beach at the bay, and ten minutes to Atlantic Ocean beach at Cape Henlopen State Park. In a neighborhood of historic Victorian houses and gardens, this historic Craftsman house has many captivating features.

This spacious house easily sleeps eight and features three upstairs bedrooms, a first floor bedroom with single bed and futon off the living room, and TV room with 2013 Lazy-Boy sleep sofa. Find plenty of room with the three bathrooms (two showers and one tub), including the Master Bedroom with queen bed and ensuite bathroom. You’ll love the open concept living and dining room and lively mix of contemporary and antique furniture. Three porches and beautiful landscaping will help you make the most of the outdoors on your vacation here.

Inside, there is original Arts and Crafts woodwork throughout, five-panel doors, built-in bookshelves, and wooden plantation shutters, which convey this unique architecture’s sense of space, openness of rooms, and lots of natural light. You’ll stay cool even in the heat of summer with central air conditioning throughout as well as ceiling fans in the majority of rooms.

Outside there are three porches, including a spacious front porch with wide wooden pillars and railings, and vintage wicker chairs to rest in. The front porch is perfect for watching parades down Savannah Road on holidays! A second, screened porch spans the entire back of the house overlooking an ample back yard, which is full of bright flowers and is fenced on three sides. With its comfortable porch furniture, you can enjoy reading the paper and having a cup of coffee with those wonderful Surf Bagels to start your day. There’s also plenty of room at the wrought iron dining set for meals for 6 or 8. A third sun deck is at the back and off the second floor, open to the skies for sunning.

The upstairs bedrooms include a Master Bedroom with queen bed and iron bedframe, as well as ensuite full bathroom; a front bedroom with two twin beds; and back bedroom with one twin bed. A second bathroom with tub and pedestal sink is located on the second floor. At the bottom of the stairway doors separate the activity of the first floor from the bedrooms. The full bathroom on the first floor includes pedestal sink and shower.

Just doors away from the luxurious Ocean Retreat spa as well as JD's Filling Station diner, you'll have many amenities to choose from. Enjoy the weekly Lewes Farmer's Market. Begin your day with morning coffee at the Lewes Bake Shoppe or Blue Sea Cafe. Antique throughout the area for visual delights. Just a few miles from Rehoboth Beach with its shopping, Tanger Outlets, and boardwalk. Your children will love Funland or mini golf, as well as Midway Speedway Park or Jungle Jim's Adventure Park.
