Welcome to your own private oasis with lovely second floor views of the Rehoboth Bay. This is Coastal Living at its finest; it has the serenity of a county setting on the Rehoboth Bay yet is only 10 minutes to all the sought-after shopping and fine dining & activities of Lewes & Rehoboth Beach. This 6 bedroom, 4.5 bath gem displays well its fine craftsmanship; 10' ceilings, 8' high interior paneled doors, tray ceilings in the Dining Room, Great Room, Casita & Master Bedroom & rich moldings throughout the house (double crown moldings & 8" floor moldings) and wide plank Bruce Cherry Hardwood floors. The effect is nothing short of elegance and class yet architected to create warmth and coziness. As you approach the front of the house, you are greeted with a trellis of beautiful wisteria and flowering plants. This sets the tone. Once inside the spacious foyer, you are struck by the grandeur & elegance of this home's decor.
