South Bethany Beach house description

Relax and enjoy the morning sun as you look out at the ocean from the living spaces of this 6-bedroom home. Its location in a corner lot affords this home plenty of natural light and beautiful views.

Sit down to eat breakfast with your family and friends in a table that stretches to seat twelve. Then put on your bathing suit, cross the one-lane street and you are at the life guarded beach! When you're ready for a change of scene, come home and relax in the hot tub or in one of the two shaded porches.

Spend the afternoon strolling the neighborhood, biking to the nearest shops, or simply hanging out. In the evening dining and entertainment can be had in Bethany, Rehoboth or Ocean City, MD. Before going to bed, be sure to climb the stairs up to the crow's nest to count the stars!

Built in 2005, the Sand Trap comfortably accommodates large groups of friends and families. Three of the bedroom suites have their own bathroom and there is parking for five vehicles on the property plus off street parking for two with a permit.

                          Location

                          The town of Bethany Beach is located 1.5 miles away, well within walking distance. A bike rental facility is located a few blocks from the house if you prefer to bike around.

                          Three full-size grocery stores are located within 2.5 miles of the house. There are at least two convenience stores within walking distance as well as Grottos Pizza, McDonalds, CVS and Walgreens, a liquor store, Dunkin Donuts, Subway, and others.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: My husband and I settled in the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC area over twenty years ago. From early on, vacations in Rehoboth and Bethany with our children became a favorite tradition. We've had the opportunity to vacation as a family in some of the best beaches in the US, Mexico and the Caribbean. However, nothing has ever replaced the comfort and sense of belonging that we get vacationing close to home in the Delaware Shore!

                          Why the Owner Chose South Bethany Beach:
                          After spending two years looking for a home in the Bethany area, we were finally were able to make our dream come true by buying a beach house in the summer of 2009. I remember clearly the day in late June when my husband who regularly surfed the real estate listings exclaimed 'Here it is! Our new beach house!' We were drawn in by the brightness of the home, its excellent condition, and the size of the house which lent itself to large gatherings with friends and family. The South Bethany area offered a good compromise between the seclusion of the private beaches of North Bethany and the crowds in downtown Bethany. We also felt that the life guarded beach would appeal to the families with young children that we hoped to share our house with. Finally, the young age of the house meant that it was up-to-date and likely to have less maintenance problems than an older home.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The Sand Trap is one house away from the ocean so sitting down in the morning with a cup of coffee and looking at the ocean is one of our favorite activities. If you are an early riser, you can watch the sunrise from inside the house or one of the decks. The crow’s nest also is a favorite hangout providing views north far up the beach and of sunsets across the tops of the houses and trees of Bethany. At night one can check out the stars or moonlight on the ocean while listening to the waves. You can actually hear the waves crashing on the beach from inside the house, but the sound is soothing and not overpowering as it might be with an oceanfront home. We love the home's closeness to downtown Bethany (1.5 miles), to Ocean City (8.5 miles), and to Rehoboth (13.5 miles). Shopping in Delaware is tax free, thereby giving those who don't typically like to shop an excuse to go! Most of all we enjoy sharing the company of our friends and family around a good meal, a sand castle on the beach, or in the hot tub.
