The spacious 2nd Family room overlooks the living room below for a great open floor plan feel. The house is approximately 4500 square feet, only 200 feet away from the ocean and a clean, wide, large, uncrowded, private community beach with highly trained lifeguards. You can see the Ocean from multiple locations inside/outside of this gorgeous home. To the East is the Atlantic Ocean and beach, while to the West are wonderful views of the southern part of the Indian River Bay, and salt marshes with many birds and unspoiled vistas, visible from the 4th floor deck. Even in the 'Off season', we have perfect spring & fall days made for long walks on virtually empty beaches. After winter high tides, beach combing for seashells is ideal this time of year. In fact, we found many large sea shells on our private beach that now rest in the family room.
Occasionally dolphins can be seen swimming offshore. The ocean's healing and calming power is unexplainable. It's easy to relax and forget all your cares sitting on the sand, breathing in the salt air, being warmth by the sun.
The house has a large screened porch and endless Ocean view wrap-around decks which is a great place to relax and read and have breakfast, lunch or dinner. Although the great room, dining area and kitchen are all open to each other, there are several spots throughout the house for individuals to retreat to for a quiet time to read or work. Bethany Beach is known as 'The Quiet Resort', and downtown Bethany with its 1/2 mile Boardwalk, beach shops and restaurants is within walking distance or a short bike ride by beach or road. People often walk or bike down to get ice cream, Boardwalk fries, Grotto's Pizza, Candy Kitchen taffy or Bethany t-shirts.
When you are finished lounging around the deck, take a few steps and enjoy the wide, guarded private beach, where you can lounge in beach chairs, swim in the ocean, body surf, build sandcastles or play volley ball. Take a break from the beach by taking advantage of all that Bethany Beach, Rehoboth Beach, Ocean City and Dewey Beach have to offer -- go kayaking on the bay, rent a pontoon boat, play golf or tennis at the many top courses nearby, go shopping at the Tax-free Outlets in Rehoboth Beach, take in a movie in Ocean City/Rehoboth Beach, go out for a family night of Crabs at Mickey's or Pizza at Grottos, or enjoy the many live concerts in Dewey Beach.
This equisite house is ideal for family, groups of golfers, reunions, wedding parties, showers, 'crafty ladies' gatherings, scrapbook weekends, small business or religious retreats, or just for a quiet vacation. You could lease this house for a long weekend, week or a month, and enjoy every minute of the comfortable and beautiful surroundings provided in the furnishings, appointments and neighborhood
