Downtown Lewes Property Offers A Glimpse Into The Resort City's Past
With a history dating back to the 1630s, there's certainly no shortage of historic properties in Lewes, Delaware. This historical gem of the Delaware beaches is teeming with buildings that go back hundreds of years, particularly in the downtown sections of the city along the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal.
It's not everyday that one of these properties hits the Delaware real estate market and gives savvy buyers an opportunity to own a piece of local history.
But that's just the type of property we're highlighting today in the Oldfather Group's latest "Home of the Week" feature.
Today, we head to historic Third Street and beautiful downtown Lewes to tell you all about a commercial property that's served many different functions over the years.
In 2022, this historic property features two commercial showrooms on the first level, as well as a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment on the second floor.
But in decades past, it's been the Lewes Firehouse & Lockup, as well as the Lewes Town Office for a time, a school house, a Boy Scout Center and a meeting hall.
Adjacent to the downtown commercial district and just an easy commute to both Lewes Beach and Rehoboth Beach, indoor features of the residential space include a full kitchen, a dining area and a bright and airy living room.
The backyard area is a nice spot for relaxing with family and friends while discussing your next adventure at the Delaware beaches.
