Four of Lewes artist Pat Staby’s whimsical pillows adorn a guest bed. One of the pillows pictures Tom and Chris, of King’s Ice Cream, with an ice cream cone. Photograph by John LewisA dedicated staircase near the kitchen leads to a second-floor TV room and bath, which could become yet another private living quarters. In all, the 4 ½-bath home could conceivably offer six bedrooms, if you converted the office and TV room.

Visitors to the Kings’ home may immediately appreciate the couple’s choice of comfortable yet elegant furniture, including comfy floral-patterned sofas and plush leather chairs that make you want to curl up with a book. It’s all warm and welcoming.
