Would you like to take in the view of the ocean or the lake today? Or maybe lounging by the pool is the way to go? Decisions, decisions.

This is a very real dilemma presented by the Shell House, an estate situated on the coast in Rehoboth Beach. Built in 1920 by a member of the du Pont family, the home sits on nearly an acre of property between the Atlantic Ocean and Silver Lake.

Whether you prefer formal meals in the dining room or weekend house parties, this property is ideal for entertaining. And with seven bedrooms, there’s space for everyone. Hardwood floors, crown molding and three wood-burning fireplaces are designed in timeless, traditional style; the gourmet kitchen is complete with such amenities as spacious marble countertops, two ovens and a Sub-Zero refrigerator.
