Description/Comments


Lot Size: --
Property Type: Residential
Year Built: 1997
Notes: When you drive up to this one-of-a-kind, custom built Victorian home sitting right on the<br /> Delaware Bay, you can either drive between the pilings into the two-car oversized garage with<br /> workshop space under the home and head up the stair tower (elevator-ready!) from the lowest<br /> level or enter from the front door and go up half a flight of stairs into the heart of the home, a<br /> living dining area overlooking the bay. This room features tons of storage behind multiple closet<br /> doors as well as a powder room and utility room. The dining area has seated as many as 35 people!<br /> Walk out of the dining room through the French doors onto a covered spacious deck where you can<br /> watch the wildlife or even fish. This deck has hosted crab parties for as many as 20 people. The<br /> deck area in front of the kitchen windows is not covered so the view from the kitchen is<br /> spectacular year-round. There's also an outside staircase for easy access from the deck to the<br /> side yard.<br /> Back inside, leaving the dining room, you walk into a galley kitchen with a breakfast bar where<br /> you can sit and eat while enjoying the birds and the waves of the Delaware Bay. In the evening,<br /> you are treated to amazing sunsets. The bay is an ever-changing vista with four lighthouses and<br /> the Delaware shoreline in your view.<br /> The kitchen features a double convection oven and a five-burner glass cooktop. Tons of counter<br /> space make it easy for multiple people to work in the kitchen at the same time. At the far end of<br /> the kitchen, there is a wall of cabinets and a space for an upright freezer. Plus there is a small<br /> built-in desk area. From there you can walk out onto a lovely porch overlooking the driveway<br /> with a view of the marsh.<br /> Continuing up the stair tower to the next level, you walk into a huge living room with a wall of<br /> windows overlooking the bay; this bright, spacious area is L-shaped. Custom cabinetry on one<br /> wall also has space for a ventless gas fireplace. On the other side, you walk through French doors<br /> into a large sunroom that gets so warm that in the winter it helps to heat the second floor.<br /> Around the corner from the living room, you will find the master suite. The bed nestles into a windowed<br /> nook that gives you a view of the bay from bed. Just like all the Anderson windows in the house,<br /> you can crank these open and go to sleep listening to the gentle waves of the bay outside your<br /> window. Find ample storage in the four closets and a niche also provides room for either a sitting<br /> area or a desk. The master bathroom includes a built-in washer and dryer area beyond pretty etched glass<br /> bifold doors. The shower room features two shower heads in a tiled room plus a garden tub. No<br /> need to take turns!<br /> Winding your way up the stair tower to the third floor, you arrive in an amazing space with an<br /> overlook to the living room below, just like being on board a ship! This floor was never finished<br /> out so you can design it the way you want with two more bedrooms or an office or a living area<br /> plus a bathroom (the plumbing is all ready - the walls and floor need to be finished and the<br /> fixtures installed). The back bedroom has a little private balcony.<br /> This Victorian home has a beautiful mansard roof. The flat area was completed with fiberglass<br /> and includes a widow's walk from an internal staircase. Plans are available to finish that area<br /> with a cupola. Up on the widow's walk, enjoy a view of the entire island of Fortescue or watch<br /> the wildlife in both the bay and marsh or indulge in some spectacular stargazing. Walls are 2x6 reinforced with plywood on the interior. This solid house has withstood hurricane-force winds.<br /> <br /> Don't wait to tour this home. It has a lot of potential to become the home of your dreams with your own personal touches added.
