Property description

Updated, quiet lake front home in an amenity-filled community. Enjoy swimming, tennis, basketball, salt and freshwater fishing, beach volleyball, shuffleboard, playgrounds and biking without ever leaving Mallard Lakes. And you're only minutes from the allure of DE and MD beaches, boardwalk, shopping and restaurants. Relax on the sun porch with your morning coffee while enjoying the lake view, then head just 2.5 miles up the road to the beach. When you return home you can wash the sand away in the roomy outdoor shower, squeeze in a walk or game of tennis before dinner, and spend the evening watching movies with family on the HDTV. Mallard Lakes is a great place to relax at a quiet get-away spot, or if you wish, all of the activities of an ocean resort are there to enjoy, too!
