You could own a piece of history! This home in the heart of historic Lewes features both retail space and a residential living area, as well as a rare connection to the past of the “First Town in the First State.” Close to the downtown commercial district and both Lewes Beach and neighboring Rehoboth, this property is a true gem at the Delaware beaches. Today, this property features two commercial showrooms on the first level, as well as a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment above. The building was completely renovated in the 1980s and is just waiting today for the right owner to make the structure’s history come to life. Originally the Lewes Firehouse & Lockup, this property oozes history and is a rare opportunity to own a piece of the city’s past. Oh, if these walls could talk! While once the fire station and jail, the property has also served as the Lewes Town office, a school house, a Boy Scout Center and a meeting hall since its construction in the final years of the 19th century. The residential space is partially furnished and features a full kitchen, a dining area and a living room, with plenty of space for future additions. The backyard area offers a rare chance in downtown Lewes to relax and enjoy a little peace and quiet with its shade and tranquility. Come and see for yourself by scheduling an appointment to view this historic First State property today. Why wait another day?
