About the Property
5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10
This quaint Victorian features all the latest updates and well-appointed furnishings. It has five bedrooms with two and a half baths (including an outdoor shower/bathroom). Sleeps 10 guests and features a fully-equipped sunny kitchen, W/D, DW, hardwood floors, window A/C units throughout and in every bedroom, Cable TV and WIFI wireless internet. The main house sleeps 7 with 1 King, 1 Double, and 3 Twin beds. The separate cottage sleeps 3 with 2 Twin beds, including a trundle that converts to a King or a 3rd single bed. The cottage bedroom suite is perfect for multi-families, teens, grandparents or a fun ‘dorm.' Delightful outdoor spaces include a neighborly front porch, complete with rockers and a backyard boasting a beautiful, spacious deck with lounging and seating for everyone, alongside a manicured lawn with towering walnut trees. Luxuriate on the long swing for a nap or book while listening to the birds and feeling the ocean breeze. When the sea is a little rough, you can even hear the waves. The gorgeous screened gazebo seats 12 for dinner and offers a couch and chairs for relaxing bug-free outdoors. My gracious neighbor offers her beautiful property for our neighborhood’s enjoyment – and yours! Play ball or frisbee; consider a friendly game of croquet (set provided). The home has a cozy solarium for morning coffee, charcoal and gas grills adjacent to the outdoor antique prep sink, and a shed stocked for your recreational use with 4 adult bikes, beach toys, boogie boards, yard games, outdoor concert lawn chairs, lounge chairs, coolers and beach chairs. Bring your own or rent equipment close by. As a bonus, you’ll find most of what you need when you first arrive, including starter paper supplies and condiments. I provide you with kitchen, hand and bath towels, but you must bring your sheets and beach towels. Sheet rental is available.
The 2nd Floor has 3 bedrooms and a full bathroom – Master Bedroom w/King Bed; Twin Bedroom w/2 Single Beds; and a Small Bedroom w/1 Single Bed. The 3rd Floor has an Attic Bedroom with an antique double bed and a pitched ceiling and steeper stairs, typical of this period type of historic home. Create some extra privacy or give the kids their own ‘dream house' with the 5th cottage bedroom. The separate Cottage Suite has 3 twin beds - a Twin and a Twin Trundle Bed (2 twins). Use them as 3 beds or convert the Trundle to a King Bed with an extra twin. The cottage has a loveseat, table for 4, mini kitchenette and easy, lighted access to the outdoor bathroom and first-floor bath.
Main level: half bath and our favorite outside shower/bathroom, complete with a toilet, dressing area, and outside sink. The 2nd floor has a full bath with tub and shower.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: The owner is a DC suburban resident, native New Yorker with an incurable love for the beach, who summered in Rehoboth for 20 years. The owner chose Lewes for its unsurpassed ocean beach (inside the Cape Henlopen State Park). Longing for her early days on Long Island, Lewes’ 8 miles of ocean shoreline is untouched, natural and undeveloped, showcasing the sun, sand and surf in all its natural glory.
Why the Owner Chose Historic District (Lewes, DE, USA):
The owner chose Lewes for its historic district which protects its small town appeal and quaint, quiet neighborhoods, where the home is located. Variety is key for her and beloved Rehoboth is nearby with its hubbub of activity, boardwalk, beaches, shops and restaurants. This house and others like it on the street were built in the Victorian era as a bonus for the managers of a long-gone factory. The owner renovated this 1898 house a few years ago, creating a lovely home for others to enjoy! The house displays her art, photos and personal furnishings collected over decades.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
First, the location; the house sits on a secluded street and is an easy walk to the center of town. Second, the home has hidden surprises around every corner. It’s updated, but eclectic and maintains many original and reclaimed features. The attic has original 1898 plank flooring; its walls were reclaimed from a 1930’s Rehoboth hand-made log cabin, whose millstone flanks the town's museum. Although that summer rental was demolished, she saved many of its features and furnishings, including the depression-era outdoor sink. The house displays her personal treasures: kitchen wall plates from her trips to Florence, Italy; a painting in the sun-room, by a RB neighbor, that depicts a tanker on the horizon; a painting of her first summer beach 'rental' which began her ‘living the dream’ home search. A friend drew an interpretation of the ‘5 Boys’ with Canada geese. There is Marsha’s (Front Street, Lewes) rendition of Madison Ave crafted like San Francisco's Painted Ladies, 'The ‘7 Sisters'. There are photos from her time spent in Italy, DC, Arizona, Long Island and Martha’s Vineyard. Every item holds a treasured memory! Please take good care of them.
