About This 1905 Lighthouse In Middletown Delaware
This unique historic home can be the “beacon” of possibilities for the new owners. Built in 1905 and known as the Liston Front Range Lighthouse, due to the legislatures of New Jersey and Delaware wanting to define the line of demarcation between the Delaware River and Delaware Bay. Currently not used as a lighthouse this well kept home offers three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms.
A 31 foot center hall runs from front to back displaying the magnificent chestnut woodwork that enhances this entire home with eleven foot ceilings. There are two matching “parlors” each having a corner tiled fireplace with chestnut mantle and surrounds. The dining room offers a large built in chestnut cupboard, the 15.6X15.6 kitchen was recently updated staying with the historic look of the home. Pocket doors on first level.
A screened porch, in the front and the rear of this home offers you the opportunity to enjoy peaceful days where you can enjoy ships going by with panoramic views of the Delaware River. Enjoy the pond in the rear yard. Large garage and a separate potting shed, in addition to a “bunker” from World War 2 compliment this one of a kind property. “Tower” for former beacon light is a must see. Don’t miss your chance to own this one of a kind property. Contact us today to schedule your tour and experience the beauty of the Delaware Bay from the comfort of this lighthouse!
