Property description

Freshly Painted Interior and New Carpeting
Great Long Weekend Destination...April, May, June, September, October & November


Welcome and thanks for your interest in our home. The community of King’s Grant is located on Fenwick Island, north of the municipal town limits and State Park beach concession area.

Community Details: King's Grant encompasses townhouse units located ocean front and bay front. 47 King’s Grant, “The Shore Thing” is a BAYFRONT unit located in the newer, northern section of the bay front units.
Our unit is a 3 story townhome with unobstructed views of the dunes and ocean views from the second floor. The ocean beach is literally across the street. The bay is our 'back yard'. Our family began to vacation on Fenwick about 18 years ago when we wanted a slightly quieter location than Ocean City or Bethany. We purchased King’s Grant 13 years ago and have thoroughly enjoyed owning it!

The beach that we have the privilege of enjoying is directly across the street. You can see the dunes from our front porch and unobstructed ocean view from the second floor of our house. From our unit it takes about 4 minutes to touch sand.(Please review the satellite view available below this description for more visual detail)There is beach access through the north and south sides of the ocean units. Both take you on a boardwalk that protects the dunes. Both northern and southern access have an outside fresh water shower to clean off after swimming.

The beach is wide, uncrowded and clean. It is owned and maintained by the State of Delaware and is an unprotected beach. Should you feel the need to be on a guarded beach, you can go south to the State park ¼ mile or north to Bethany about ½ mile.

As mentioned, our home is on the bay side of the community which also includes the location of the pool and pier. These 2 amenities have offered us another wonderful dimension to our time at the beach. The pool is situated at the edge of the bay with tall grasses surrounding three sides. There is normally a slight rustle with the breeze blowing the grasses. On the pool deck are several seating options including tables with umbrellas & chairs, perfect for lunch! There is also a restroom. Next to the pool is the pier which goes out into the bay and is a great place to fish and crab or just hang out! My kids have spent hours out there.

There are 2 reserved/marked parking spaces which are located in front of the unit. The spaces are within 40 feet of the front steps.

House Details: Welcome home!
Our 3 story townhome comfortably accommodates up to 8 including children.
When you enter our home, you can look straight through the sliding glass door to a beautiful, unobstructed Bayfront view.
Standing in the foyer, the stairs to the 2nd floor are on the right, through the hallway to the left is the Den which houses a Pottery Barn queen sleep sofa & small TV. There is also a powder room, and a closet with the washer/dryer/iron and ironing board and room for your beach chair storage.

As you continue into the house, the kitchen is on the left and then the dining/living space.
The kitchen is fully equipped. There are enough plates & utensils for 12 and several serving pieces, etc. We keep a basic spice pantry for those that also like to cook.

In the dining area is a counter with stools and dining table which seats 6 comfortably. The living room has comfortable seating for 6 people, wireless internet and TV.
Off the sliding glass doors from the living room is a nice sized screened porch with a ceiling fan, table and chairs(6), live box, crab net and some crab traps as well as an additional cooler for your use. Beyond the screend porch is a beautiful 1st floor deck with teak steamer chairs, gas grill and plenty of space to read the morning paper or enjoy a wonderful sunset with family and friends alfresco. The first floor deck is a great space for coffee in the morning, iced tea in the afternoon and a tall cool drink in the evening. It's also a perfect spot for star gazing if you don't want to walk across the street to the beach.

Second Floor: There are 2 en suite bedrooms on the 2nd floor. The Bayfront master has a beautiful view through the sliding glass door that lead to a private balcony overlooking the bay. It has a Queen sized bed, double sink vanity, Jacuzzi tub/shower, large closets and TV.

The front (ocean view) bedroom also has a Queen sized bed, TV, private bath with a shower and unobstructed views of the sunrise, the dunes and the ocean. There is a sitting area off the 2nd floor hall with a large picture window and game table. You can watch the sun rise over the ocean or use our binoculars to see the freighters in the ocean at night. If neither of those activities appeals to you, you can just sit there and play a game of checkers!

The 3rd Floor: is “The Crow’s Nest”! Decorated slightly whimsically, it houses a trundle bed which can accommodate 2 singles when pulled out or can be pushed together to create a queen bed. There is a TV/VCR and full bath/shower with separate vanity.

The house is decorated in a casual, sophisticated style. The majority of the furnishings are Pottery Barn. There are ample pillows and blankets, bureaus and closets to accommodate 8 people. Linens/paper & consumables are not included.

When we visit the beach, the kids and my husband either go to the pier or the beach and I head to the grocery store. We prefer not to go out every night. We like to cook and enjoy entertaining at home. Often we will spend the day with friends, enjoying the beach, or riding bikes, hit the pool in the afternoon, and enjoy a relaxing evening with cocktails and dinner on the deck. The sunset makes a great backdrop!

If your idea of vacation is NOT to cook, there are several GREAT restaurants and pubs close to our house. We keep a visitors binder in the living room with information regarding restaurants & pubs, day trips, state parks, etc.

Location, Location, Location!!! The beauty about this part of the island is that it is quiet and peaceful yet very close to everything. Shopping in Rehoboth is ½ hour north of the house, if you would like to go out on a fishing charter Indian River Inlet is 12 minutes north of the house or bring your kayak or canoe and put it in the bay ½ mile north at one of the state park bay beaches. Great golf is just a phone call away.

It’s nice to have the option to have quiet time or hop in your car and go for ice cream or mini golf. This part of Fenwick Island is a well kept secret that we are now sharing with you. If you are interested in more information or would like to rent our house, please contact us.

Thanks for your time!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are the Brennan and Riley families and we love Fenwick Island! Zoom in on the map to get a better view of our location. The sunsets are amazing!!!

Why the Owner Chose Fenwick Island:
We decided to purchase in Fenwick because it is approximately 3 hours from Baltimore/Northern VA(our homes) and an incredibly well kept secret in terms of solitude and beauty. King's Grant is a well-kept, convenient, family friendly community with terrific beach and bay access. Our home is comfortable and provides the opportunity for easy living beach style.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Relaxation at it's finest. Watch the sun rising over the dunes in the front of the house and sunsets on the back decks. Beautiful surroundings, large sandy beaches, convenient location and very comfortable, easy accommodations.
