When you drive up to this one-of-a-kind, custom built Victorian home sitting right on the Delaware Bay, you can either drive between the pilings into the two-car oversized garage with workshop space under the home and head up the stair tower elevator-ready! from the lowest level or enter from the front door and go up half a flight of stairs into the heart of the home, a living dining area overlooking the bay. This room features tons of storage behind multiple closet doors as well as a powder room and utility room. The dining area has seated as many as 35 people! Walk out of the dining room through the French doors onto a covered spacious deck where you can watch the wildlife or even fish. This deck has hosted crab parties for as many as 20 people. The deck area in front of the kitchen windows is not covered so the view from the kitchen is spectacular year-round. Theres also an outside staircase for easy access from the deck to the side yard. Back inside, leaving the dining room, you walk into a galley kitchen with a breakfast bar where you can sit and eat while enjoying the birds and the waves of the Delaware Bay. In the evening, you are treated to amazing sunsets. The bay is an ever-changing vista with four lighthouses and the Delaware shoreline in your view. The kitchen features a double convection oven and a five-burner glass cooktop. Tons of counter space make it easy for multiple people to work in the kitchen at the same time. At the far end of the kitchen, there is a wall of cabinets and a space for an upright freezer. Plus there is a small built-in desk area. From there you can walk out onto a lovely porch overlooking the driveway with a view of the marsh. Continuing up the stair tower to the next level, you walk into a huge living room with a wall of windows overlooking the bay; this bright, spacious area is L-shaped. Custom cabinetry on one wall also has space for a ventless gas fireplace. On the other side, you walk through French doors into a large sunroom that gets so warm that in the winter it helps to heat the second floor. Around the corner from the living room, you will find the master suite. The bed nestles into a windowed nook that gives you a view of the bay from bed. Just like all the Anderson windows in the house, you can crank these open and go to sleep listening to the gentle waves of the bay outside your window. Find ample storage in the four closets and a niche also provides room for either a sitting area or a desk. The master bathroom includes a built-in washer and dryer area beyond pretty etched glass bifold doors. The shower room features two shower heads in a tiled room plus a garden tub. No need to take turns! Winding your way up the stair tower to the third floor, you arrive in an amazing space with an overlook to the living room below, just like being on board a ship! This floor was never finished out so you can design it the way you want with two more bedrooms or an office or a living area plus a bathroom the plumbing is all ready - the walls and floor need to be finished and the fixtures installed. The back bedroom has a little private balcony. This Victorian home has a beautiful mansard roof. The flat area was completed with fiberglass and includes a widows walk from an internal staircase. Plans are available to finish that area with a cupola. Up on the widows walk, enjoy a view of the entire island of Fortescue or watch the wildlife in both the bay and marsh or indulge in some spectacular stargazing. Walls are 2x6 reinforced with plywood on the interior. This solid house has withstood hurricane-force winds. Dont wait to tour this home. It has a lot of potential to become the home of your dreams with your own personal touches added.
