    Description

    From the minute you open the door, you know that you have stepped back in time to old world craftsmanship. History indicates that the distinct style of this Federalist home was started in 1860, hand crafted by a ship carpenter, using wood and parts from shipwrecks. The original part of the home is thought to be at least 160 years old, begun before the beginning of the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln becoming President! The unusual character of this home boasts original old-time plank floors, exposed beams, expansive rooms with vaulted ceilings and the sense that you are standing in the presence of carpentry genius. This 3-story, 2675 square foot distinct, eclectic style home w/modern conveniences, offers 4+ bedrms, 2.5 baths, a 1st & 2nd fl M-Bedrm, & is located in the heart of Lewes, originally the Dutch settlement called Zwaanendael (Swan Valley). It is an easy 2 block walk to historic downtown Lewes where you can enjoy year-round shopping and dining, as you stroll to the harbor or Lewes Beach.The solid wood floors with open beamed ceilings, attests to its amazing history. From the front door, you are greeted with a beautiful wood floor in the foyer & staircase. To your right is a large sunlit 1st fl M-bedrm. To the left is a multi-use room w/a closet that has served as a 1st fl Guest bedrm, library, and a music room where concerts were held. There is a spacious living room w/ a pellet burning stove. The previous owners were architects who renovated & rebuilt this home 20+ years ago, designing a spaciously large open kitchen, dining room w/ vaulted ceilings w/original wood flooring. A large screened in porch to relax and dine overlooks a fenced in private oasis, garden walkway and terrace with mature perennials & trees including an original fig tree. There is plenty of private outdoor space allowing you to step away from the hustle and bustle of life. There are 2 staircases, front & rear leading to the 2nd & 3rd floor.
