MLS#: DESU2036354
Subdivision: Lewes Beach


Located on a quiet cul-de-sac off Cedar Rd., this 3 BR 2 BA saltbox cottage takes you back to simpler times with its wood paneled walls and cozy feel and yet it is not without some modern touches. The open floor plan lends itself to ample space for entertaining. The kitchen is roomy enough for multiple cooks and the large screened porch means the party can move outdoors without the fear of inviting mosquitoes to the gathering. Storage, which can be an issue with some of the older cottages, is not a problem here, as the house has a full basement, as well as a floored attic off one of the second floor bedrooms. Moving to the exterior of the house, you will find a fenced in backyard with an outdoor shower and storage shed. Given the size of the backyard and the design of the cottage, you could easily expand the house with a two story addition, while maintaining its salt box appeal from the street. The upside potential of this property goes without saying, but its location truly makes this house worth consideration. It is far enough from Savannah Rd. to mitigate the street noise, but it is within walking distance to the best of what Lewes has to offer. You can park your car for the weekend and walk or bike to the beach, shopping or some of the finest restaurants in the area. No need to call a taxi or pay for parking. Though this would make a great second home, it could be considered as a source of investment income as well. In our current rental environment, similar properties are renting for over $2,600/week with the potential of staying booked for the summer season. With so much to offer, don't hesitate to make your appointment to see this Lewes Beach charmer today!
