“Sunninghorse” offers the finest in beachfront living
Long & Foster Real Estate, the No. 1 privately owned residential real estate company in the United States and an exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate in Delaware, has listed a magnificent oceanfront home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Located at 2 Bassett Avenue in the coveted community of Indian Beach, the home offers the finest craftsmanship, privacy and beautiful ocean views. The property is listed with Realtors Chiqui Gavilan, Marisa Chaves and Guy Abernathey—Long & Foster’s City2Beach Team in Rehoboth Beach—and it is being offered for $4.75 million.
“This seaside villa, known as ‘Sunninghorse’ is not just a home, it’s an experience,” said Gavilan of the City2Beach team. “From the moment you arrive, the home’s architectural details, including its terraces with classic balustrade railings and a two-story rotunda, captivate you. Then the ocean transports you. It’s a charmed life.”
The 4,170-square-foot home includes four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half baths. Its inviting layout is designed for elegant simplicity and coastal sophistication. Either way, Sunninghorse is a gracious invitation to living well. The rooms are beach elegant, combining the mystic beauty of its natural surroundings with the soothing and soft color palate of the sea. The living room, family room and kitchen each have a wall of windows, and French doors open to an expansive ocean-facing deck, perfect for morning meditations, lunch or sunset cocktails.
The home’s kitchen is spacious and expertly designed for the foodie in everyone, including Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, granite countertops, wine cooler and bar seating. Entertain in grand style in the unique, circular dining room with custom-painted ceiling and open views of the home’s beautiful natural surroundings from its floor-to-ceiling arched windows. For more intimate or casual gatherings, the home offers several outdoor venues: the screened-in porch, the oceanside deck and just off the deck under the open sky, where the only thing between you and the ocean are a few pine trees and sand dunes. If it’s a picnic by the ocean you prefer, just a few steps further and you’re on the beach.
Take the elevator or staircase to the top floor master suite, which includes a sitting room and luxurious bath. Large windows and French doors again lead to a private terrace extending the length of the master suite, perfect for morning coffee and yoga. After a day at the beach, this master bath will beckon you to relax in the jetted tub in the rotunda, from which to appreciate its custom-painted ceiling and panoramic views of the sea. Bayside are three comfortable bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms.
There is plenty of space for your beach gear in the basement storage room or in the oversized two-car garage. Ample parking is available for guests.
