Sea Colony condo description

In real estate they say ''location, location, location'' and we have it in spades! Located on Teal Lake with water views from any vantage point and every window including the kitchen's. The heated pool and main Tennis Center are steps away. We're less than 3/4 of a mile from Sea Colony's private beach, close enough to walk or take advantage of Sea Colony's shuttle (in season only) that makes frequent stops by our parking lot. The town of Bethany Beach is only a mile away with it's many shops, restaurants and boardwalk along the beach. For even closer shopping and dining, the Sea Colony Marketplace is just a short walk away.

Conveniently located on the first floor level, this Veranda-style unit with wrap-around screened porch provides ideal southern exposure for striking sunrise and sunset views over the pines. Professionally redecorated, upgrades include, but not limited to: a new fireplace, Sony 40 inch flat screen TV and Nintendo Wii in the living room. Each bedroom also has a flat screen LCD TV as well as premium box springs/mattresses. Laptop users will appreciate our password protected wireless router for internet reception inside the condo or on the screened porch. Wi-Fi is provided by Sea Colony on their beach and at the westside's Freeman Fitness Center.

In addition for being known as a world class tennis and beach resort, Sea Colony West is beautifully landscaped in a quiet park-like setting with abundant shaded walking/biking paths among it's many lakes. This is a real plus during the summer's hot sunny days for those that enjoy a nice walk or run.

The private beach & tennis community features an unmatched offering of amenities including 12 pools (2 indoors), 34 tennis courts (12 Har-Tru clay & 4 indoors), two Fitness Centers (with indoor and outdoor pools, weight room, saunas, whirlpool and gym), children's programs, community shuttle, hiking and bike trails and more. Sea Colony is also ranked by Tennis Magazine as #10 out of the 50 Greatest U.S. Tennis Resorts and #13 in the world. Since the beach is private owned by Sea Colony, it is kept exceptionally clean compared to others along the Mid-Atlantic shore.

We are located less than 3 hours from Wash D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and New Jersey. NON-SMOKING AND NO PETS. Security deposit required. Please be aware that there is a per person badge fee charged by Sea Colony year round with the off season having the lowest fee.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          About the owner: We are working professionals from Baltimore that have been renting at Sea Colony with family on the east side for 35 years. Recently we started to try the off season and really prefer the relaxed pace. The park-like setting on the west side provides ample walking or bike riding space in a safe well maintained enviroment.

          Why the Owner Chose Sea Colony:
          We fell in love with this unit with it's incredible lake view and close proximity to both the pool & tennis courts. Tucked far enough into the west side for peace and quiet, yet equidistantly close the the beach and fitness center. We feel it's among the best vacation locations in Sea Colony.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          Easy access to Delmarva attractions yet less than 3 hours from Baltimore, DC or Philadelphia.
