Welcome to 7 Indiana Avenue, an iconic Lewes Beach home. This exquisite property was designed by the late Jay Dalgliesh of Dalgliesh Gilpin Paxton Architects of Charlottesville, VA. Mr. Dalgliesh was a renowned Architect throughout the world and known for many esteemed projects such as The V House in Charlottesville, Virginia and Les Joiles Eaux in Mustique. Recipient of many honors through the years, he was recently presented with the Milton Grigg Award by the American Institute of Architects. Mr. Dalgliesh's life-long friendship with the homeowners granted him the ability to design a home based on their personal lifestyle. To start, 7 Indiana was designed around the footprint of the original Lewes Beach cottage offering more flexibility in the size of the many outdoor and indoor living spaces. Every angle of this custom home exudes coastal elegance. The shingle style exterior featuring cedar shake siding, quintessential plantings and landscape, flagstone walkways, Honduran Mahogany doors and extensive porches and balconies create the most tranquil setting, a necessity for any coastal lifestyle. Upon entry, you will be captivated by the Australian Cypress flooring which offers a rich color and texture in every room highlighted by the natural light from the plethora of windows. The open floorplan is ideal for intimate gatherings with comfortable spaces for all, inclusive of a plantation room, dining area, and family room with a wood burning fireplace decorated with a custom mantle designed from reclaimed woods from the original UVA Rotunda. The large kitchen is the heart of this home offering ample storage, a large island with a mahogany counter top, expansive breakfast bar featuring honed granite, stainless commercial grade appliances, and wet bar complete with a beverage and wine fridge. The first-floor master suite offers the most relaxing environment featuring a reading nook, private screened porch, and beautiful spa like bath complete with a soaking tub and oversized glass shower. The second level offers a cozy escape for guests, complete with three enormous guest suites and three private baths. Two of the guest suites feature unique trundle style custom built beds, ideal for overflow company. These rooms also feature private balconies offering tranquil bay views. In addition, the second level living space is complete with a private balcony, gas fireplace and more views of the Delaware Bay. Guests may never want to leave! 7 Indiana Avenue also features a large private rear yard complete with a grilling patio and outdoor shower. As an oversized lot, this property offers great potential for a pool! Like few beach homes, this property offers a spacious garage ideal for vehicle storage or beach toys, and a walk-up 2nd level that is roughed in for plumbing and electric. This space is perfect for additional storage or simply drywall and finish as another guest suite, art studio, home office, workout room, or workshop. The options are truly endless. You can be assured that no detail was overlooked in 7 Indiana and pride of ownership shows. Conveniently located within steps to Lewes Beach, the Lewes Yacht Club, and Downtown Lewes amenities, this home truly leaves nothing to be desired event for the most discerning buyer!
