Own a piece of Lewes history! Built in the 1920s, 901 Savannah
Road incorporates remnants of the Cape Henlopen Lighthouse, lost
to sea in 1926: the gas fireplace in the living room contains stone
from the lighthouse and the gracefully arched front door is said to be
from the lighthouse keepers' cottage. In addition to these pieces of
history, the first floor features three built in bookcases in the living
room, a dining room with two built-in glass front corner cupboards,
a well laid out kitchen with large pantry and breakfast room, and a
generous primary bedroom with en suite full bathroom and private
attached dressing room. In the back of the home, you'll find another
living space with wood burning fireplace, loft, closet, and half-bath.
The focal point of the first floor, though, is the breezeway, which
opens via sliding doors to a well-maintained cottage garden
featured on the Lewes Garden Tour. The backyard is enclosed by a
wood fence and there's plenty of room to entertain on the brick
patio. On the second floor, you'll enjoy two more large bedrooms, a
full bathroom with closet, large closets, an office, and a storage
attic. The working cellar space contains room for a large office, built
in bookcase with drawers and shelves, another large storage closet,
an extra fridge, a washer, a dryer, a half-bath, a work bench and
shelves, and a utility sink. In the past few years, the seller has
meticulously maintained the residence and made many
improvements, including a new roof, three zone geothermal HVAC,
new Marvin integrity windows throughout, and a roomy rebuilt shed.
This stunning home is minutes from the Lewes Public Library, the
Junction & Breakwater Trail, and Lewes Beach. 901 Savannah is
known locally as the Harrington House and now it can be yours!
