An oceanfront Dewey Beach estate formerly owned by the du Ponts sold for a record $9.1 million.

The property at 1 and 3 Cullen Street sold for the highest price in Delaware for a residential property, according to the real estate multi-listing service (MLS). It last changed hands for $7.5 million in 2004, according to Realtor.com.

Named “Sandaway,” the former property of Alexis F. du Pont Sr. actually includes two homes, a 7,035-square-foot main home on a 26,692-square-foot lot and a 2,922-square-foot guest house on a 7,906-square-foot lot.

The property at 1 and 3 Cullen Street in Dewey Beach recently sold for $9.1 million.

The sale closed April 26 after being on the market since March 28, 2019, according to listing agent Kim Hamer, a Realtor at Ocean Atlantic Sotheby’s International Realty.

“At that point that was the highest residential sale in Delaware that was recorded in our MLS system, so that does not include any private sales,” Hamer said.

The oceanfront property at 1 and 3 Cullen Street in Dewey Beach recently sold for $9.1 million.

Built in 1939 with renovations through the years, the main home features seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, six fireplaces, a curved staircase, wrap around decks, a sunroom, a gourmet kitchen with Wolf appliances and granite counters, a great room, a living room, a formal dining room, den, sauna, basement and outdoor shower.

Hamer said almost every room has unobstructed ocean views.
