LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION:
Located ocean side on 78th street in midtown Ocean City, MD, Captain's Bridge #2 is just a few steps to the beach. No high rises and very little development on the bay side make 78th street very quiet and this beach is one of the least densely populated in Ocean City! It's a great spot for families with children and couples who want a truly restful vacation. Within walking distance to some great restaurants and a short drive to the grocery store. Bus service is terrific here.

KITCHEN:
Renovated in 2010, fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar and stools features refrigerator, dishwasher, oven with smooth top range, built in microwave, and garbage disposal. The kitchen also provides all utensils, plates, cookware, baking dishes, coffee maker, toaster, and blender.

LIVING ROOM:
The spacious living room offers a queen sleeper/sofa along with several accent chairs, custom made window treatments, LCD flat screen TV, DVD/VCR Player, and ceiling fan. Walk outside to the front deck and view the ocean over the dunes or sit in a rocker and enjoy the sounds of the ocean.

DINING AREA:
The dining area comfortably seats 6 adults and provides plenty of storage for napkins, extra food, etc. in the side table and corner cabinet. Alternatively, walk outside to the rear deck and eat your meal at the picnic table that seats 10. Slider off dining room was replaced in 2012.

MASTER BEDROOM:
The spacious master bedroom features a queen bed (replaced in 2012) and a full sized bed, 2 side tables and lamps, full length dresser and mirror, TV, ceiling fan, iron and ironing board, and a nice sized closet. Enjoy views of the ocean while relaxing in bed or walk outside to a private balcony with fantastic views of the ocean and distant views of the Assawoman Bay. You can enjoy both the sunrise and sunset from this one balcony while relaxing to the sounds of the ocean from the double chaise or one of the wicker chairs.

BEDROOM 2:
This cozy bedroom features a queen bed (replaced in 2012), side table and lamp, and a nice sized closet with a closet organizer containing drawers (closet organizer new in 2012).

BEDROOM 3:
This cozy bedroom is decorated in a nautical theme and features a pyramid bunk bed (twin over full) (new in 2013), side table and lamp, and a nice sized closet with a closet organizer containing drawers (closet organizer new in 2013).

1ST FLOOR FULL BATH:
This very clean full bath provides a stand up shower. It was renovated in 2010 with a new sink/vanity, toilet, floor, and is warmly decorated in a sunrise yellow with white bead board.

2ND FLOOR FULL BATH:
Completely renovated in 2011 with new shower, sink, toilet, floor, walls, and fixtures.

PARKING:
2 private parking spaces in the rear provide stress free parking. Additional first-come-first-served private parking spaces are also available in the rear. Public parking is available on the street in front of the building.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES:
Original pine hardwood floors throughout (with area rugs for comfort), tongue and groove pine beamed ceilings add character to this spacious town home. A warm private shower in the rear provides comfort when rinsing off after returning from the beach. From the shower, walk up several steps to the back deck and store your beach equipment in the outside storage area. You enter the house from there to return to the comfort of home.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              Why the Owner Chose Captains Bridge:
              Our parents owned a condo in Ocean City. They took it off the rental market the summer of 2009; we were able spend some time there with our 3 kids. They were at an age when going to beach was finally manageable. We really enjoyed our trips and considered purchasing a unit of our own as theirs was being sold. It was just an 'dream' and one that we thought wouldn't happen for a long time. We ended up stumbling on this townhouse. It needed a lot work; it was in great condition, just very dated. We fell in love with the uniqueness of the unit with it's beautiful hardwood floors and beamed ceiling and the proximity to the beach couldn't be beat. With 3 young kids it was ideal. We ripped up the 30 year old carpets, renovated one of the bathrooms, and had the kitchen renovated. It is now a very comfortable and charming place to stay. We have done many additional renovations since that first year!

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              We make many trips to and from the beach during the day. It's no big deal because our unit is so close. When our kids nap we relax on the double chaise lounge off the master bedroom and listen to the ocean. We don't feel tied to the house; we are still enjoying the outdoors and the beach while relaxing on the deck. We love that the street is relatively quiet with no high rises and no development on the bay side.
