The 14th Annual Cottage and Town Awards presented by Rehoboth Beach Main Street were held on Sunday, November 7th 2010 at the Rehoboth Beach Museum. Sponsored by Echelon Custom Homes, the program is a celebration of preservation and renovation in downtown Rehoboth Beach, DE. It recognizes residential and commercial property owners who contribute to the charm, beauty and ambiance of Rehoboth Beach through preservation, restoration, new construction, and landscaping. The aim is to celebrate and thank those who have had a significant visual impact on our community.
The winner of the New Home Construction Award went to the Holland residence for their home at 105 New Castle Street built by Echelon Custom Homes. The home was designed by Tim Tice with interior and exterior selections made by Matty Adler. This upscale beach cottage complements the surrounding homes, while providing the homeowner with unique living spaces. The whimsical landscaping and flower boxes enhance the home’s distinctive charm. According to the award from Rehoboth Beach Main Street, “A number of factors went into this award, not the least of which was respect for the site and preservation of its trees, including the magnificent pine at its front entrance. Elsewhere, the large volume of the home is hidden in a series of connecting cubes which disguise the size of the place including a set of bedrooms hiding under its roof.”
