Great Investment Property, Airbnb potential, or short term rentals such as traveling nurses, includes a barn with a concrete foundation and owned solar panels. This might be the next location for your small business! This home has been remodeled and brought up to date with many upgrades, see them below!

So you don’t want to just visit any more, but actually live and work at the beach? Tired of living in small spaces, right next to a neighbor? How about instead of .25ac you can get 1.26ac.. Want plenty of room for your family to grow, or have extended family that you would actually invite to the beach? This home has three bedrooms on the first floor with two full baths, then on the second floor there are two more bedrooms, a full bath with hot tub, along with a common living area. With the potential for even more people for a big party you will need this large upgraded kitchen, with quartz counter tops, two family rooms one in the front and one in the rear. The back family or sunroom has windows lining the walls providing great views of the beautiful back yard and above ground pool. Worried about parking off the street? This home has 11 total parking spaces that do not even account for the circular driveway. For even more room for your party, exercise or just relaxing, there are two more rooms added on, with another wall of windows and the four season porch has the relaxing hot tub for those sore muscles that may come after either work or too much fun. With all this space for fun, you will need lots of supplies which can be easily reached in this walk-in pantry and if the weather is bad your guests can come in through the mudroom/laundry area from the garage. 

Tired of other people telling you what you can do or not do with your yard or home? This home has NO HOA to look over your shoulder! Want more privacy? The whole backyard has a privacy vinyl fence. Want a real workshop with room for your RV and other storage? How about a Stickbuilt Barn with a concrete foundation and flooring. There is even a maintenance pit to change your oil or work under a vehicle. What else do you work on or use your imagination to create? Have a lot of equipment to plug in for your workshop? There are multiple workshop areas in the Barn and the Solar Panels which are owned not leased will help lower that electric bill! When it gets cold outside and it’s not the month of May, you can rely on the Geo-thermal heating system in the house and a wood pellet stove in the barn. When it’s a bright sunny day and it’s getting warm outside the home has central air in the main portions of the home and additions are served by mini split systems. 

Just imagine, what you can see out of all those windows, besides the pool and trees, the love of your life, your spouse, your children or grandchildren? Is your imagination running away with you or will you soon be married and starting a family? Will you look out the window later and believe what a lucky person I am to live here? It doesn’t just have to be your imagination running away with you, it can be that you have found your dream here! Lewes, Rehoboth and Dewey Beaches are all close. Beebe Hospital is very close. There are plenty of places to surf fish or fish in the bay. There are lots of area amenities like great restaurants, craft breweries, outlet malls, go-carts, art shows, family or late night clubs, all are available but far enough not to disturb the quietness of your own oasis in your private back yard. 

Was your Papa a rolling stone who loved to travel but landed here at our beautiful resort area? Then you would be one of many who followed the generations of their family here, to relax, and to have fun. You can find family fun in Lewes, assorted fun in Rehoboth or late night fun in Dewey. Whether the fun is on land or in the water you still need a place to rest your head after such an amazing time of fun, this beautiful remodeled and spacious home could be just what you need to fulfill your dreams of following others by making the decision to live at the beach! Just imagine…
