About the property

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 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 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.

Linens not provided. Linen service, beach chairs, bicycles, kayaks, SUPs, can all be arranged for a additional fee. Please inquire if interested.

Experience the very best of what Lewes has to offer!

About Ryan White

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.

Ryan White purchased this house in 2011

Why Ryan White chose Historic District

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

What makes this house unique

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.

What a lovely vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year that we stayed for a week in this house. What a lovely town and the house fits our needs perfectly. The proximity to shoping, restaurants and playgrounds is perfect for our family. The owners are very easy to work with. We hope to stay here again in the future!

WOW what a great place

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our week in Lewes. This place was great. Two blocks from the main Lewes downtown. A quick walk in the morning to get coffee and fresh pastries from the bakery. There are probably 12 or so restaurants downtown. Every one we tried was great but we really loved the Half Full pizza shop.

The house had plenty of room for the 5 of us. Our kids loved that the house was split up so they had their end and we were upstairs at the other end. Nice patio to sit on in the morning and read the paper. The home was well stocked (games, books, kitchen wares) and very nicely decorated. It quickly felt like our home away from home.

You could walk or bike to the beach but we drove most days to Cape Henlopen State park since we had a lot of stuff. We went to the Rehoboth boardwalk a couple of nights. There are some great bike trails that take you from Lewis to Rehobeth really a beautiful ride.

So anyway... this house is great, the town was wonderful, and the beaches were perfect. It really was an amazing vacation and we created some life long memories with our family. I am not typically a fan of beach houses but this cute cottage with big shade trees sold me. We will be back next year for sure.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to Lewes and this cottage was just perfect for my family (4 adults and 1 child). The owners were very attentive to any questions before we arrived and after our stay. The well-stocked kitchen was a plus, and the information notebook provided gave us all the details we needed to know about the house and area. What a wonderfully picturesque town that we hope to visit again one day! We would definitely stay here again.
