Nestled on Red Mill Pond, this waterfront sanctuary is located on a highly desirable street in Edgewater Estates. Tucked away on a tranquil cul-de-sac, this distinctive home design is located on an oversized half-acre plus lot. The front yard welcomes you with an extensive driveway, professional landscaping and mature trees. Upon entry, prepare to be wowed by the sweeping waterfront views, ideally positioned west to capture spectacular sunsets! Featuring a spacious main living area with vaulted ceilings, composite wood flooring, a stone fireplace and skylights that fill the space with natural light. Offering multiple locations to entertain and relax including a large screened porch and rear deck. With a total of 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, the open floor plan seamlessly integrates the indoor and outdoor areas, ideal for alfresco dining, morning coffee, or simply enjoying the views. The first-floor master bedroom offers water views with direct access to the rear deck and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom. An extensive home addition was added in 2015 that expanded the home with skylights, sun tubes, vaulted ceilings and plenty of windows. This addition added another living room area, two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom and an office and storage area adjacent to the garage, ideal for a home business or extra space. For the last 18 years, this home has been lovingly maintained by the same owners with environmentally friendly products. The HVAC system has been cleaned annually and Filtrete MPR 1000 Micro Allergen Defense air filters have been used and changed every three months. A whole house water filtration system gives clean drinking level quality water out of every faucet of the house. Additional features include new carpet and paint throughout, built in garage shelving, new epoxy garage flooring, full attic with stairs for additional storage and the list goes on! The lush lawn leads to a fire pit and specially designed private dock, offering the perfect spot to dock your boat, jet skis, canoe and kayaks. With an abundance of mature trees, the shade in the late spring, summer, and early fall creates a natural coolness in the house and yard. The property is a bird watchers paradise! The location provides the ideal setting for owls, mourning doves, eagles, blue herons and hawks. The exterior is a gardener’s dream offering numerous fruit trees and bushes including: three fig trees, two kieffer pear trees, multiple blueberry bushes, three grape vines and wild strains of raspberries and blackberries. In addition, there are old growth flowering bushes including multiple strains of rose bushes, azalea bushes, purple rhododendrons, and multiple peony bushes that will produce peonies for another 25 years! As far as gardens, there are four organic raised garden beds (three with vegetables and one with flowers), as well as two in-ground garden beds (one with flowers and one with organic, food-grade herbs). The new side-fence is all cedar and is still under warranty. Adjacent boat ramp provides easy boat access and additional space and privacy. Easy bike access to the Lewes-Georgetown bike trail to downtown Lewes and Lewes Beach.
