Description

Looking for a home done to the nines? Don't hesitate on seeing this spacious and comfortable Historic District home! All the reasons that a Victorian might make you think twice have been remedied! Central air conditioning? Yes! Large bedrooms? Yes! Updated windows? Yes! Well insulated? Yes! Upgraded electric? Yes! Modernized plumbing? Yes! Main floor bedroom with full bathroom? Yes! Also includes impressive amenities such as a tankless water heater and a geothermal system! Worried about parking in town? Don't be! This home has a beautiful, long driveway and a garage with an electric door opener. Concerned about "Highway" in the address? It's only 25 mph here! Call your agent for a private appointment or visit the upcoming open house. Glamour meets nostalgia in this stunning, elegantly spacious four bedroom 1898 Victorian home designed for upscale entertaining nestled in the true heart of this quintessential town. You'll see the well preserved original details blended with comfortable upgrades and numerous additions. Park the car in the garage since you are in walking distance to the sought after Lewes amenities and Savannah Beach. Relax comfortably in the dual zone central air conditioning - a true luxury in a Victorian! You will find gleaming hardwood flooring throughout this charming home and stylishly designed bathrooms. Two of the four bedrooms have their own full bathrooms which is another era rarity. One of those bedrooms is on the entry level making one floor living a possibility here. Upstairs you will find the preserved claw foot tub in the otherwise renovated hall bathroom. The kitchen island countertop is a must-see, custom craftsman piece of art with cross sections of trees in a patterned, inlaid butcher block. Imagine your favorite people gathered around this as you entertain! Check out the fabulous LG fridge with it's 3 types of ice - cubed, crushed or craft! The ample soft-close cabinetry provides storage for all your culinary gadgets while the two stainless steel ovens, microwave and induction cooktop by Miele, Wine refrigerator by Liebherr, marble counter tops and lots of light ease your entertaining goals. Open the glass wall between the kitchen and the sunroom. It slides and tucks away allowing refreshing breezes to flow through the open floor plan of your stunning home. The sought after garage has electric and the lawn features an irrigation system. The maintenance record is impeccable and a list will be provided to the buyer. There is an incredible walking and bike path a couple blocks away and the hospital is within hobbling distance. Have everything from A to Z offered by Lewes within the alluring atmosphere, Blooming Boutiques, creative candies and decadent dining. Experience events with your fabulous friends, gregarious groups, historians and horticulturalists. Enjoy irresistible ice cream, the 4th of July jamboree or Kid's Ketch for lighthearted laughs. Maritime marvels, nocturnal noshes or oysters outdoors pair with parades or a quest for quiet times. Revel in relaxation at Second Street's tantalizing treasures which are unbelievably understated. The variety of views are wonderfully walkable. Xenodochial becoming xenial will make you yearn for Lewes' zealous zestiness!
