This airy, colorful, light-filled home features five bedrooms, two on the main level, three full baths and a bonus room off the foyer. The welcoming front porch is an inviting area for casual entertaining or enjoying a read after a long day at nearby Lewes Beach or Cape Henlopen State Park, both a short drive away. Or bike to the beaches with backyard access to the Georgetown-Lewes trail, a portion of the Delaware Greenways.

The 3-person hot tub on the Trex deck is an excellent place to marvel at the broad night sky.
