Owner info

Year Purchased: 1958

About the owner: We are a fourth generation Lewes family and have spent our summers in this house since it was built in 1958. Our ancestors were sea captains living on Pilottown Road in the 1800s. Needless to say we are deeply rooted in Lewes with fond memories of fun-filled, crab picking, lazy, hazy, crazy days on the beach in front of our house! Fond memories of playing horse shoes, croquet and camping out in the back yard still exist… We are hoping to retire here in the near future -- we live in Bryn Mawr, PA and try to spend as much time as we can in Lewes. My sister who is the co-owner lives with her husband in Cockeysville, MD.

Why the Owner Chose Lewes Beach (East of Canal) (Lewes, DE, USA):
Our home has been lovingly maintained since our parents had it built as a small cottage. We spent every summer here since my sister and I were born. As we all aged, it was decided that we needed more creature comforts and more room. So, we raised the cottage, had it architecturally redesigned and custom built to suit our very specific needs! I think you will find our home very comfortable and accommodating!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Situated in one of the nicest sections of Lewes Beach and only steps to the beach. Just a short bike ride or walk to the historic and lively town of Lewes and Cape Henlopen State Park. A very comfortable home complete with all of the amenities required for an enjoyable week at the beach!
