Welcome to 136 Gills Neck Road in the picturesque town of Lewes, Delaware. Rich in history, the Fisher House is a historic waterfront home that dates back to 1680. This 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath, canal front home tastefully blends the allure of the past with modern conveniences. Lush landscape frames this charming shingle style home with a gambrel roofline and cozy front porch. Upon entry, you will be impressed with the beautifully preserved architectural elements including the four wood-burning fireplaces, wide plank hardwood floors, exposed beams, and intricate moldings at every turn. The updated addition, completed in the early 1990's, seamlessly integrates modern amenities, providing a perfect balance of historic charm and contemporary living. The spacious kitchen includes vaulted ceilings with skylights, ample cabinetry, a pantry, electric cooktop, dual ovens, and a large island. From the kitchen, you will enter the family room which has excellent natural light from the skylights and oversized sliding door that leads to a custom Janco Greenhouse. This family room is ideal for relaxation, and perfectly mends indoor and outdoor living! The first level is also home to 3 spacious bedrooms each offering unique elements. The first-floor bedroom in the historic section offers vaulted ceilings with a loft and ensuite bath. The additional 2 bedrooms on the first level feature custom built-in shelving, and spacious walk-in closets. These rooms are adjacent to a hall bath featuring a stall shower, dual sinks, and a custom soaking tub. Approach the 2nd level by one of two original, hidden stairwells where you will find 2 more bedrooms, the 4th wood burning fireplace, a cozy sitting room and 1 full bathroom. Each room offers interesting angles and roof lines that you simply will not find in today's architecture. As you meander outdoors, you will enjoy the privacy of the side courtyard complete with a spacious brick patio, 6' privacy fence, beautiful landscaping, outdoor shower, and storage shed. The property continues to the adjacent, waterfront parcel, shaded by beautiful mature trees, manicured lawn and approximately 80 feet of rip rap along with a private 36' floating dock complete with water and electric - ideal for your boat! Situated in the heart of historic Lewes, the Fisher House offers the utmost convenience and endless opportunities for recreation and exploration!
