Stunning Contemporary with Ocean Views in North Shores

Located in: Rehoboth Beach
This architect-designed, 5,000+ s/f house is across the street from the private North Shores beach, backs onto state park land and has amenities seldom found in the area. It is an upside down house, with living areas on the upper level and bedrooms on the lower. The kitchen features granite countertops, Viking and Sub-Zero stainless appliances, and a center island with five barstools. Cabinets, floors and wood trim throughout the new construction is maple. There are ocean views from the kitchen, living area, piano room and three top floor decks. It features seven decks or balconies, an elevator, a beautiful antique 7-foot Steinway grand piano (with a room of its own), magnificent original art, a fireplace, multiple flat-screen HDTVs (in 2 bedrooms and both living rooms), a harbormaster telescope to watch the ships traveling in and out of the Delaware Bay, and fun things like a hammock with its own screened porch), lighted bocce ball court, badminton court, bikes, and a kayak. The cottage (attached) also has a living room with a large flat screen TV. A pool and 2 tennis courts are one block away (for use by North Shores residents and guests only) and our private guarded beach with umbrella and beach chairs (provided) is literally across the street.

The house is a "smart" home, with Amazon Echo's throughout top floor and smart lighting which comes on and off on a schedule. We have Nest thermostats which are programmed but may be overridden if necessary. The property has beautiful landscape lighting which goes on and off on schedule.

Wonderful Rehoboth Beach is one of the lovliest beach communities along the east coast and the town itself is a short walk or bike ride away. The restaurants are wonderful and range from family-friendly to fine-dining, with everything in between. The shopping is fabulous, whether you prefer to stay in town and peruse the small retail shops and galleries, or spend a rainy day at the huge selection of outlet stores just a couple of miles away, along U.S. Hiway Route 1. You will be pleasantly surprised to learn that Delaware is a tax-free state, so you'll save even more!

The Rehoboth Beach boardwalk is ranked as one of the best in the country and there is no end to things to do for everyone in the family. There is a bandshell which features entertainment almost nightly during the summer months, a children's theater, a community theater for the adults, a classical concert series (in neighboring Lewes), a movie theater a few miles away, bikes and motor scooters for rent, history (Lewes, the next town north of Rehoboth, founded by Dutch shipbuilders in the 1600s -- and Ft. Miles at Cape Henlopen Point) and a 'birder's paradise' with Cape Henlopen State Park (which borders our home) being on the Atlantic Flyway for migrating birds. The park also has a hiking and biking trail around Gordon's Pond. A large pod of bottlenose dolphins lives in the mouth of the Delaware Bay (just a stones-throw from our house) and they travel up and down the Delaware coast every day searching for breakfast and dinner. We often see them from our living room deck, or at the beach. On a particularly nice day, some of the friskier ones (and especially the babies) will jump out of the water, twisting in the air, and put on a grand show for those watching along the shore! If you take the kayak out, the dolphins will swim along with you, playfully darting under your vessel (our grandchildren are enthralled). Babysitting is available through several service providers, or through the lifeguards at our beach and pool (all college age).

Our house was an original 1960-era North Shores summer bungalow in the A-frame style, some of which can still be seen here and there around North Shores. We were the third owners, buying it in 1995. In 1998 we renovated, reconfiguring many rooms, updating the bathrooms, and refinishing the beautiful wide-plank pine floors. Our architect then made plans to lift the house onto pilings and build the 'new' portion of the house. That work was begun in 2001 and we officially moved in in the fall of 2003. Our interior design work was done by the Rita St. Clair Design firm out of Baltimore, with later help from the Design Center of Rehoboth. Five bedrooms and 3 baths are in the original cottage, 1 bedroom and a full bath plus a half bath are in the new part of the home. (The master suite, which is the 7th bedroom and 6th bathroom, contains owners' personal belongings and is not available.)

In the cottage there are 3 upstairs bedrooms. Two have queen-size beds and share a bathroom. There is a small Romeo and Juliet balcony off of these two bedrooms, with a beautiful ocean view. One of these two bedrooms features panoramic window ocean views. The third has two twin beds with its own bathroom (which has a stand-alone shower). The two bedrooms on the lower floor are in what we call 'the children's wing.' One room has bunk beds (sleeping 2), the other has two trundle beds (sleeping 4). There is a large bathroom with a tub, a stand-alone shower, and a vanity with two sinks. The vanity is child-height, allowing little hands to reach the water.

In summary, ours is a magnificent, one-of-a-kind house with beautiful ocean views, plenty of outdoor living areas, a private beach just steps away and tons of fun-filled amenities.
