36 Delaware Ave., Rehoboth Beach, Del.

Located just steps to the beach, shopping, restaurants, and boardwalk  

Live the dream in downtown Rehoboth Beach and take advantage of this fabulous opportunity to own a historic home in the center of town.  This unbeatable location is close to all that Rehoboth offers – the beach, shopping, fine dining and the boardwalk.

Built in 1910, this beautiful beach cottage, known as At Melissa’s, has been operating as a successful Bed & Breakfast for the past 25 years, but will easily welcome you home as a primary residence, beach get-away or as an investment property.

Located at 36 Delaware Avenue in Rehoboth Beach, the nearly 3,500 square foot, six bedroom, six bathroom home, is presented by Guy Abernathey in the Rehoboth office of Long & Foster | Christie’s International Real Estate and Allison Stine of the Allison Stine Team of Northrop Realty, a Long & Foster Company and is offered for $1,499,900.

“This is the beach house that all your friends and family will want to go to,” said Abernathey. “It’s the perfect place to relax, unwind, and spend time with loved ones in a stress-free environment. With its close proximity to D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York, it’s convenient for all.”

Nestled among stately, mature shade trees on a delightful street, you’re welcomed to the home by a long, inviting front porch. Sitting on this porch, you’re transported back in time as you relax and watch the world go by while enjoying fresh ocean breezes.

As you step inside, you’ll notice the home’s well-maintained charm, with original hardwood floors and moldings.  On the main level, there is a lovely dining room open to a large light-filled family room. 

It will be easy to cook for a crowd in the all stainless-steel kitchen featuring a commercial gas range and oven, triple-basin sink, and two dishwashers.  Custom designed for efficiency, the kitchen features open shelving, pot and pan hooks at just the right height, a commercial glass front refrigerator, plenty of overhead lighting, ceiling fans and a view of the backyard.

There’s room for all your family and friends in this home’s six spacious bedrooms and six nicely updated bathrooms.  The third level, known as the “penthouse”, is large enough to sleep eight people or could be used as a recreation area.

After a day at the beach, rinse off in the backyard outdoor enclosed shower. Later, your family and guests can gather for drinks in this peaceful backyard beside the unique garden wall filled with flowers, then walk the two short blocks to one of Rehoboth’s great restaurants for dinner.   

The home also includes convenient off-street parking for five cars.
