Primehook Beach house description

Come and relax at our home at Primehook Beach. Watch the dolphins in the open waters of the Delaware Bay from our second and third floors or the snow geese, grackles and gulls from our backyard that adjoins the Primehook National Wildlife Reserve with its acres of water. With three floors there is plenty of room for your family to spread out and relax. The top two floors were built in 2003 and the first floor has been remodeled. Our sunsets over the water are gorgeous.

We are across the street from the beach, a short walk. Enjoy bike rides in our private community or go for long walks along the quiet beach looking for shells and sea glass. You will quickly see why Primehook is such a gem. It reminds us of Nags Head, only much closer or Ocean City, MD how it was 60 years ago.

We have two bedrooms on the first floor. One with a king size bed, the other with a full. They share a bathroom with a tub and shower. There is bedroom with 2 single beds and a bathroom with a shower on the second floor. The third floor has the third bedroom with a queen size bed and its own half bathroom.This bedroom has a magnificent view of the water. At night you can lay in bed and see the ships with their lights on anchored in the Bay.

In nearby Milton, about 9 miles away, we have a Food Lion, a
Walgreens, a Subway, a Chinese carryout, a Domino's and one of our favorites, the Miltonian Restaurant with Greek/Italian and American cuisine. For more shopping we have Lewes and Rehobeth south on Route 1. There is the Boardwalk in Rehobeth and further south, in Ocean City as well as historic sites, theatres, amusement parks, the incomparable Henlopen State Park on the ocean in Rehobeth and all kinds of experiences awaiting you at the shore.

We look forward to hearing from you to plan your vacation at our house in Primehook Beach. It will be our pleasure to help you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Ask us to send you our rental agreement so you can book your rental while there is still time. By the way, no waiting for keys at our house, we have resort lock. Thank you, Ron and Anne.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: Anne and I grew up in Northern Virginia, married and moved to the Baltimore area. She is a Medical Technologist at a local hospital and I am in the investment business. We have two wonderful sons, Mike and Nick. They are both attending Towson University. We have 2 other members of our family and they are Ollie and Teddy, our very special Yorkshire Terriers. Anne teaches Yoga and Zumba while I like to work on old cars for fun. We hope you enjoy our home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Primehook Beach:
                  While we enjoyed family vacations in the Outer Banks for many years we prefer being much closer to home with many of the same benefits here in Primehook Beach. Away from the crowds and close to nature.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Water views in the front and waterfront in the rear gives us the best of both worlds. Having three floors especially with the high ceilings in the second floor gives us a wonderful feeling of spaciousness. Five decks allow all kinds of perspectives that enhance the experience. Being in Primehook Beach gives you quiet and peacefulness. You can walk on the beach and, many times, be the only one there. At the same time you are only about 20 miles from Rehobeth Beach and tons of things to do. For us vacations are about relaxing and enjoying the simple things, walking on the beach, looking for shells, surf fishing, bird watching, bike rides, long lunches on the deck. Its all here.
