Patterson-Woods Commercial Properties/CORFAC International Facilitates a Pair of Restaurant Sales in DE

Wilmington, DE (April 13, 2015) – Patterson-Woods Commercial Properties/CORFAC International, a leading full-service commercial real estate provider serving the Mid-Atlantic market, today announced the completion of two restaurant sales in Wilmington, DE.


Joe Latina, a principal with the firm, represented Lucey4, LLC & Ballyvourney, Inc. – aka Stephen B. Lucey & Michael C. Lucey in the purchase of a 5,400-square-foot restaurant building located at 20859 Coastal Highway, Rehoboth Beach, DE. The seller was Captain’s Table Limited Partnership, Allan Lynch Rev Trust & Village Cupboard, Inc., and the property traded for $1.9 million.

The deal included a second parcel with an approximately 6,912 square feet, two story building. The ground level is leased to a liquor store and the second story has three apartments.
The Lucey brothers are the owner/operators of Six Paupers Tavern & Restaurant in Hockessin, DE and Ulysses American Gastropub Wilmington, DE. They plan to convert the restaurant building they acquired into a new gastro-pub concept named “The Forgotten Mile Alehouse,” which is a reference to the stretch of highway between Dewey Beach and Rehoboth Beach, both of which are popular resort destinations in summer and second-home markets for affluent people from the region, particularly Washington, D.C.
In a separate transaction, Jester & Sons, LLC sold Hunter's Den Restaurant to Xia Zhao and/or Tian Cheng Development, LLC, of Wilmington, DE for $960,000. The restaurant is comprised of 5,810 square feet on 1.85 acres of land located at 3517 Old Capitol Trail in Wilmington, DE.

Also included in the sale is an adjacent two-story, 1,995-square-foot building, 3513 Old Capitol Trail, that is used as the business’s corporate operations. Latina and Mary Ann Heesters of Patterson-Woods together represented the seller and procured the purchaser.
Hunter's Den has been operating as a family-owned restaurant for over thirty years. It is known for its hunting theme and historic charm. There are three dining rooms, a buffet area, and a lounge that frequently hosts live bands and entertainment. The new owners purchased the restaurant as an investment and plan to initially continue to operate the business as Hunter's Den. 

Latina also leased a restaurant at 59 E. Main Street in Newark, DE, to Asian investors that renovated the space and re-opened the restaurant as “Colorful Yan Nun.” The Chinese-food inspired restaurant has been an instant hit, particularly among the students at nearby University of Delaware. 

Latina specializes in retail and investment commercial real estate with a strong emphasis in the food and beverage sector. Heesters has a background in food and beverage, and specializes in obtaining and transferring liquor licenses in real estate transactions.
