Just Listed at the Beach: Supersized Shore House in Dewey Beach
This spacious house for sale in Rehoboth's next-door neighbor can accommodate you, your family and your guests so well, you won't get in each other's way if you don't want to.
If you’re the type of person who enjoys inviting all your friends down for the weekend when you head down to the shore for your summer vacation, we have just the house for you.
This spacious house for sale sits just one block away from the beach at the north end of Dewey Beach, Rehoboth’s younger next-door neighbor. Built two years ago, it’s one of a slew of recently built houses that are redefining summer at the Delaware coast.
With nine bedrooms, seven full and two half bathrooms, balconies galore, two screened porches and even two main living areas, this house is built to handle a crowd. It speaks the traditional language of Shore architecture while boasting all the latest bells and whistles.
The main floor consists of an open great room, a den, a family room with kitchenette, and two powder rooms.
The great room combines a sitting area, a kitchen, a dining nook and a beverage station.
The built-in couches in the sitting area also double as twin beds, and it has a gas line so you can install a fireplace in the future.
The kitchen boasts a six-burner Thermador range and a backsplash of Moroccan tiles, not to mention plenty of cabinet and counter space.
And if all you or your guests want is to fill their glasses, they can help themselves without getting in the way of the cook by using the beverage station next to the dining nook. It has a refrigerator, sink, dishwasher and ice maker as well as a glass-front cabinet for glassware.
The den just off the main entrance can be closed off with sliding barn doors to provide a quieter space for reading or study.
And in back of the great room is a separate family room with its own kitchenette, outside entrance, screened-in porch and powder room. Your guests can enjoy themselves in this space and even reach their bedrooms via a separate stairway without disturbing your own reverie.
Most of the upstairs bedrooms have enough space to accommodate two or more beds. The bathrooms are outfitted with tile walls and shower stalls in various colors that recall the sun and surf.
The master suite sits on the top floor. It has its own bedroom with sitting area and bathroom with double vanities. This space can be closed off from the living area on the other side of the main stairs with a sliding barn door. That way, you can get some rest while others watch a movie and enjoy drinks served at the wet bar.
There’s also an unfinished room with a 22-foot-high ceiling over the garage that’s known as “the tower.” As of now, it’s being renovated for any of several possible uses, such as a studio, workout room or second master suite.
Given all its goodies, this house for sale should have you all set for next summer. And because it’s so accommodating, you might want to rent it out when you’re not using it to earn some income you can put towards its upkeep. And since it has room enough to sleep 20 and those separate living areas, you might even consider renting parts of it out while you are there yourself as well.
