The Bradley property on Savannah Road in Lewes continues to deteriorate.
The infamous Bradley property on Savannah Road in Lewes, former home of convicted pedophile and former pediatrician Earl Bradley, continues to deteriorate. The property went to sheriff’s sale last month with no takers. Not many people were interested in bidding on a property the foreclosing bank wouldn’t open for inspection. So, the bank held on.
In recent storms, the heavens dropped several branches into the driveway of the house and onto the roof of its front porch. The driveway branches covered the black VW convertible that lives at the house, and there it sits now buried in the debris. There was a time when the vehicle looked almost brand new. Now it’s neglected like the rest of the property.
Meanwhile, while some vegetation is raining down on the property, other vegetation is climbing the walls of the house, beginning to haul it down as is nature’s usual course when it goes unchecked.
Based on the age of other houses along the street, the house is about a century old. If it goes another year as it is going now, the only option that will be left will be to raze the building as was done with the Bradley offices on Route 1.
