Property Description

CELEBRATE THE IDYLLIC LEWES BEACH LIFESTYLE from this beloved 2 bedroom/2 bath classic cottage. Steeped in history, "Midland Cottage" was originally a barracks house for soldiers serving at Fort Miles in what is now Cape Henlopen State Park. Most recently it has acted as the coastal retreat for the current owners' family and cherished over the course of four generations. Now, the time has come for new owners to create their own memories. Ideal location allows you to experience the best of both worlds - just steps from the sand and the soothing waters of the Delaware Bay, it's also an easy stroll across the canal bridge to all your favorite restaurants and attractions of downtown, historic Lewes. Should you outgrow the quaint and charming Midland Cottage, the 50x95 lot can act as a blank canvas, awaiting your architectural vision for a custom-built home equipped to serve your long-term needs. DON'T DELAY - ACT NOW to secure your piece of quintessential Lewes - just in time to kick off the summer season and celebrate Memorial Day from the tranquility of Lewes Beach.
