Beach House

The Jordan Beach House in Bethany Beach, Delaware is one of the few bungalows that are still standing.  It's only a few blocks from the beach.  The Jordans live in a smaller house behind the bungalow and rent out the beach house every summer.  I love the front screened-in porch.  Many of these structures are being torn down to make room for 2-3 story summer residences.

Bridgeville, Delaware

I discovered this Queen Anne style house on the way to my client's house on the Eastern Shore.  I find the Eastern Shore full of inspiration from farm land dotted with farm buildings, historic homes and businesses all on the way from Annapolis to Bethany Beach on the Atlantic Ocean.  This 19th century Queen Anne house is located on Market Street in the historic district of Bridgeville, Delaware.  Bridgeville just south of Dover, Delaware was founded in the 1680's.  I love the Queen Annes steep roof with multiple gable roof shapes and projecting polygonal bay.  I especially like the open porch.
