$2.495 million

Address: 214 Hickman St., Rehoboth Beach 19971 | Square footage: 3,500 | Lot size: 0.11 acre
Year built: 2007 | Bedrooms, baths: 6 bedrooms, 6.5 baths | School district: Cape Henlopen


Picture a hip home built in 1950s Palm Springs, where guests moved freely about—Tom Collins in hand—from the sleek interior to the open air beside a shimmering pool.

Now pick it up and set it down in south Reho, a short jaunt from your favorite downtown watering hole.

The 12-year-old house was designed by noted Washington, D.C., architect James Foster, with the clean lines, organic flow, flat roofs and glass expanses that are hallmarks of midcentury modern design.

“It’s a style you don’t see that often in Delaware or Rehoboth,” says Shaun Tull of the Bryce Lingo & Shaun Tull Team of Jack Lingo Realtor

The house is big and tall, a rare find in Delaware’s beach community. With its size, lot coverage and multiple rooftop decks, “you could not replicate today due to zoning restrictions,” Tull says.

Extravagant finishes and fixtures are reflected in the price point. Hardwood floors are featured throughout. A Sub-Zero fridge, a wine fridge and a Wolf range are among the kitchen’s fine amenities. Each bedroom has its own en suite bath with such niceties as frameless glass shower doors, and a gas fireplace adds warmth to the master suite. Another suite has its own private entrance for long-term guests, and a sixth bedroom, currently used as a home office, can be whatever you’d like.

The sun-drenched catwalk accessing the guestrooms overlooks the lower level of the house. Guests are pampered with a beverage center and their own private laundry area.

Custom stainless-steel railings are a recurring theme inside and outside. The multiple decks include a space for al fresco entertaining on a roof that’s outfitted with a fireplace for nippy autumn evenings.

Cement-board siding on the exterior keeps maintenance to a minimum—a bonus at the beach.

“The whole wall along the pool is glass, which provides tremendous natural light all day long,” Tull notes.

A one-car garage with a glass-fronted entry door faces the street and is designed for both parking and partying. A second garage door on the pool side can be opened for additional entertaining space, Tull points out.

Just bring your swimsuit.
