Welcome to 34 Collins Ave. in North Indian Beach, just south of Dewey Beach Delaware. Situated on an oversized 90 x 100 ocean block lot, this home was designed specifically to accommodate the needs of many people. Built in 2011, this home is constructed using Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF). An ICF home costs about 20-25% more to build than a standard "stick-built" home but is well worth the cost in an area prone to nor'easters and the occasional hurricane. The home is elegant, yet warm and inviting. When you enter 34 Collins the first thing you'll notice is the grand scale of the home with vast open spaces, high ceilings, large windows, high doors and oversized crown moldings. Natural hardwood floors throughout the living and sleeping areas add to the feeling of warmth and elegance.The inverted floor plan maximizes the views from the main living areas. The elevator runs from just inside the garage up to the second and third floors. Bringing in groceries on a rainy day is a breeze. The third floor includes the spacious kitchen with two islands, open concept dining and living room areas and a den that can be closed off from the rest of the rooms. The folding kitchen windows open to a supersized screen porch that is perfect for alfresco dining. The open stairwell is graced by a chandelier and unique trim details in the ceiling,The third floor can easily accommodate large parties and relative reunions. But if your guests are feeling the need for some more space, they can take the enclosed stairwell up to the secret oasis of this home - the enormous rooftop deck. The roof deck is approximately 1800 square feet, with views of the Atlantic Ocean, Rehoboth Bay and Delaware Seashore State Park. The 42-foot Sussex County height limit allows the home to "overlook" most of the homes in Dewey Beach, which has a lower height limit.The second floor includes an inviting front porch that spans the length of the home, the grand entry foyer, the master suite, two ensuite guest bedrooms and two additional guest bedrooms that share a "jack and jill" bathroom. The ground floor Is a very large, open bonus space with one guest bedroom and a half bath. The rest of the space is currently used as a second TV room and also has full-sized pool and ping pong tables. You can use your imagination with this space. Possibilities include one or more home offices, a large gym, a golf hitting bay, more guest rooms, a bunkroom, etc. Note that, although the first floor currently does not have a shower, two outdoor showers are easily accessible out the back slider. The beach is very close. If you cross the dune and take a left, you're in Dewey Beach. But if you take a right, you're on your private beach, North Indian Beach. From here you can literally go for miles in relative solitude. You'll feel like you're in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. If boating is your passion, the Rehoboth Bay Marina is at the other end of the street.
