The Oldfather Group of Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty will be featuring “The First Town in the First State” this weekend, specifically a couple of historic buildings in the heart of downtown.
These two properties rest side by side on historic Third Street and have recently come on the market, so it’s a great time to visit Lewes and take a look at these completely renovated and historically significant structures.
The Oldfather Group’s Diana Harbert will be on-site this Saturday, July 11, from 1 to 3 p.m., so stop in and have a look. But first, keep reading below for a preview of these two historic coastal Delaware properties.
Resting at 112 West Third Street, the first Lewes property being featured this Saturday features three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and 1,900-square-feet of completely restored living space.
This featured home dates back to the 18th century and a time when life was much different at the Delaware beaches. Originally located on Pilottown Road before being relocated around the turn of the 19th century, this restored Colonial home features architectural elements of the day, including wooden beamed ceilings, brick accent walls and wide plank flooring.
The living room features a stone slab hearth fireplace and the nearby kitchen rests adjacent to the dining room and has French doors that lead out onto the peaceful backyard.
Visit 112 West Third Street this Saturday, July 11, from 1 to 3 p.m., and enjoy this look into the past of historic Lewes.
After you’ve finished walking through 112 West Third Street, step next door and take in yet another unique historical downtown Lewes building.
Used for years as a blacksmith shop, this nearly 3,000-square-foot structure features towering ceilings and plenty of space downstairs to continue using as a work space or to transform into something else, if desired.
An apartment with a proven history of rental income is located on the top level and features a fully equipped kitchen, a comfortable living room and a vaulted ceiling bedroom that leads to a roof top deck with spectacular views.
Along with the property next door, 114 West Third Street is also conveniently located near all of the shops and restaurants of downtown Lewes and is just a short walk away from both the Lewes & Rehoboth Canal and Lewes Beach.
This property will also be open for public viewing on Saturday, July 11, from 1 to 3 p.m.
