Own a piece of Delaware History!! This very unique bay front property was originally part of the Slaughter Beach Hotel dating back to the late 1800's. The current owners ancestors bought this property 100 years ago and have enjoyed it through many generations! The large parcel includes 1.26 acres on the Delaware Bay with 175 feet of direct beach frontage. In 1981-83, Richard Johnson & Son Contractors were hired to completely renovate the home, by relocating and elevating it onto pilings to have a better Bay View.

The 3rd floor provides 3 bedrooms - 2 of which have direct bay views and the 4th floor (former attic) boasts a open beam bay front loft bedroom with a private sun deck overlooking the Bay. The oversized climate controlled, detached garage with a finished office space and potential 2-story dwelling area provides extra conditioned living area and massive storage. The home was restained in early June. The elevator and whole house generator serviced and, every window in the home has been recently replaced with A-Series Anderson windows!
