Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I'm first generation Italian-American, and grew up in Brooklyn, NY. I currently live in New York City with my husband and son, who is 13. My son and I are both avid tennis players, and spend the summer in Quogue, New York, enjoying tennis outdoors. The three of us are foodies, and take advantage of all the great restaurants in Manhattan. We are also avid movie goers, and Sunday night is typically pizza and a movie, not necessarily in that order.
Why the Owner Chose Historic District (Lewes, DE, USA):
I went to Lewes with an old friend because she was interested in purchasing a home in Lewes after having vacationed there. Within moments, I was in love with Lewes. The people are so kind, and the town is charming, with great shopping and GREAT restaurants. I got home and told my husband I thought we should buy a house there. We returned the following weekend, and as soon as I walked into this house, I knew it would be mine. I spent some time there before it rented for the summer 2013, and was so happy walking into town for coffee, or breakfast, running into the shops for flip-flops or a book, and getting to know my amazing neighbors. It is also a quick drive to Rehoboth Beach for boardwalk fun and the outlets for shopping.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a historic home, built in 1857, which I renovated in 2014. It is elegant, yet comfortable, a beautiful old home suitable for modern living. You never need your car once you get here, shops, bars, restaurants, market, beach are all just a walk or bike ride away.
