Currently operated as a B&B, this historic home built in 1914 could also be used as a personal residence by right. Although the Buyer would need to honor any 2022 reservations in place from guests who do not choose to cancel, the property includes some extra features not typically found in historic district homes that potentially make up for the inconvenience, including a two car garage with finished space and half bath on the upper level plus significant off street parking. With 5,661 finished square feet not counting the finished garage space, the property has been lovingly restored by the owners over the past few years to its current Coastal elegance and charm. It boasts six bedrooms with a full bath in each bedroom. Additionally, every bedroom has its own privately controlled HVAC system separate from the system that controls the main common areas. The entire HVAC system is new in 2020 as is the full fire suppression sprinkler system throughout the home. One bedroom is a suite with an additional living room, sunroom, steam shower and a private entrance off the back private deck. Guests have called this "suite" larger than many big city apartments. The kitchen is a true gourmet space and accesses the beautiful back porch, lovely enough to relax for a meal or just a glass of wine as a retreat. A patio and gardens complete the exterior and the location places the owner within a very short walking distance to downtown with its shops and restaurants. A buyer wanting to supplement income could easily live in the suite and utilize the other bedrooms for paying guests if desired, making the home not only theirs to enjoy but also as a source of income. Sold fully furnished with all housewares, artwork and decorations. If desired, the owner would engage an estate sale auctioneer for any buyer who didn't want the furnishings. The asking price represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a special Lewes historic property. Be a part of history in the town called the Best Small Town In America!
