Private Homes, Bethany Lakes house description

Nicely-decorated, comfortable, relaxing, and spacious single-family home in the gated community of Bethany Lakes with 88 homes.

The community has a swimming pool, kiddie pool, playground, tennis courts, clubhouse, fitness gym, and large lake with boardwalk and gazebo. Pool and amenities are a 3-4 minute walk across the lake. Enjoy leisurely strolls or ride your bikes on the community's wide streets without the worry of speeding cars and busy roads. A new Harris Teeter (with Red Box) is just conveniently located right across the street. Other close-by sites include the Salt Pond public golf course, James Farm Ecological Preserve and Fresh Pond Park. The beaches and charming town of Bethany are less than 5 minutes away.

The first floor features hardwood floors, a two-story living room, full kitchen with island, dining room, living room, family 'great' room, powder room, laundry, two-car garage, relaxing three-season porch, and deck. Spend your evening on the front or back porches overlooking the lush yard or enjoy the ocean breezes from the second story porch with its lakeview and sound of the lake fountain. On cooler days, leave the windows open to enjoy the cross breezes of fresh ocean air.

The second floor is fully carpeted with four comfortably-furnished bedrooms and three full baths. The master suite has a four-poster queen bed, balcony, and master bath en-suite with sunken tub and shower. The second bedroom has a full size bed with bathroom en-suite. The third bedroom has a queen size bed and shared balcony with the master. The fourth bedroom has a bed bunk with a twin above and full below as well as a full size futon. The third and fourth bedrooms share a full bath.

We have a few board games and puzzles, beach chairs, and beach umbrellas for your use.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We are working professionals from the DC area and are still getting used to being second-homeowners in Bethany. A big house to manage, yet so much to see and do in this area! We like spending time in all 6 towns, and recreating outdoors in all of the natural areas along this beautiful stretch of coast. We cannot believe this will be our 4th summer in Bethany - time flies!

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Bethany Lakes:
                      This house was lovingly cared for and decorated by the prior owners who had a lot more design sense than we do. As a result, we try to be 'stewards' of their work and take really good care of the house. We chose this location as it is in a quieter part of town, close to the beach, has a neighborhood feel, well-maintained properties, and the community offers nice amenities.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Safe, gated community which is family-friendly, a beautiful clubhouse and swimming pool, spacious homes which are beautifully designed, minutes to the beaches and downtown.
