When the local chamber of commerce asks to photograph your gardens when applying for a national award, well it’s pretty safe to say that you have something special on your hands.

But creating the gardens and landscaping at 360 Pilottown Road, in one of historic Lewes’s most prestigious communities, did not come easily. The current owners are very much into gardening and report a great deal of time and effort was put into creating what is now one of the favorite parts of their high-end coastal Delaware property.

To create the garden area on the east side of Pilottown Road, on the banks of the Lewes and Rehoboth Canal, nearly 100 truckloads of topsoil were shipped in to create a visual oasis that the current owners describe as “extremely important to us.”

The gardens, the boathouse/Florida room, the 50-foot private dock and the full-length saltwater swimming pool definitely dominate the outdoor living space of this nearly one-acre coastal Delaware property. But the 6,500-square-feet inside the main home is a dream for the discerning homeowner who wants to enjoy coastal living to its fullest at the Delaware beaches.

Featuring five magnificent bedroom suites, each with it’s own sitting room and full bathroom, as well as an owners’ suite with two bathrooms that can be accessed via elevator, this canalfront home is truly one-of-a-kind in coastal Delaware.

In total, the property features seven bedrooms, six full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, solid wood doors, site-finished reclaimed flooring, a backyard deck and a two-car garage, in addition to a plethora of other amenities.

A major focal point of this exquisite coastal property is the custom designed kitchen made for those who love to cook and spend time in this area of the home. Featuring custom-made cabinetry, designer appliances, a large granite island and even a salamander, this kitchen will have you thinking that you have your own private restaurant just outside its boundaries.

So whether it’s swimming in the pool, strolling through the gardens, drinking your morning coffee on the lanai or watching the sunset from the boathouse, this home provides the finest in coastal Delaware living.
