Property Description

**HANDYMAN SPECIAL** Offering the best of waterfront living, this 2 bedroom 1 bathroom stilt house is situated on a double lot of bay front property, allowing for at least 34 feet of clearance from neighboring lots. Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city to discover the peace and quiet of Pickering Beach, where you're surrounded by the Delaware Bay to the east and open fields to the west. Just a short drive to historic downtown, Dover Air Force Base, Little Creek Wildlife Area, Dover International Speedway, Wesley College and Delaware State University, this property is perfect for those who want their privacy while still having the conveniences of living near town. Spend your summers boating, fishing, jet-skiing, swimming and sunbathing in the tucked away community of Pickering Beach. Upon arrival at the home, you're greeted by the spacious, 528 sqft. Timber Tech deck which will become the ultimate hangout spot - perfect for barbecues and cookouts. Soak in the sunshine during the day and gaze at the stars during the night from the comfort of your own raised deck. Boasting over 1,000 sqft. of living space, this home highlights a 16' x 26' great room with windows galore offering unobstructed views of the beach and bay. Although the home is not completely finished, the sale of this property includes already purchased materials necessary for completion, currently stored in the great room, including all hardware. The kitchen was recently updated in 2015 to include a brand new refrigerator, oven, Formica counter tops and a stainless steel sink that has already been purchased, but just needs to be installed. Vinyl siding and a 35 year shingle roof were added to the cottage in 2006. A new SANYO heat pump system was installed in 2009. With materials needed to complete this home included, this property is ideal for a handyman who wants to put a little love and elbow grease into making this home a dream come true.
