Property description

Luxury bayfront home with glorious water views from every window. 3,600 sq ft of splendor perched on a cul-de-sac in a gated, 21-home executive community. Up to 10 vacationers can enjoy five decks, screened porch, gas grill, whirlpool tub, wireless internet, computer and epic views that go on forever. This home delivers luxury and convenience whether you favor the private pool, tennis/basketball court, the award-winning beach, exploring, or just chilling out with your sundowner in an aquatic wildlife setting. Expect much.

The home is offered July, August and September and maintained to the high standard of a private executive residence. The waterfowl greet you to start your day as you sip your beverage perched high over long water views. The open floor plan and large kitchen island is perfect for your breakfast and snacks, and every window displays pristine bay scenes. The multiple decks and screened porch are adorned with relaxation seating for everyone. Throughout the day you observe shore birds and other wildlife go about their business in their natural habitat, and yet are only a 7 minute walk to the ocean beach.

Waters Edge features 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths and sleeps 10 people. The master bedroom has a king sized bed, walk in closet, balcony and private bathroom with whirlpool tub. Every bedroom enjoys the tranquility of a natural water view.

Expect more when you are our guests. We provide starter paper products (paper towels and t-paper) as well as hand soap, dishwasher and laundry detergent. Also, there is no cleaning fee.

Additional amenities include a wet bar and refrig, large capacity Keurig coffee brewer, multiple large flat screen HDTVs with satellite DVRs, and whole-house WIFI with a computer, a spectacular glass office, elevated captains walk, private outdoor shower, and lending library.

Our nearby service coordinator is available to arriving and departing guests to deal with any unique situations as you begin your concern-free visit.

We tried to think of everything ... even a dumbwaiter for grocery deliveries. Multiple size bikes are available. A beach buggy and beach chairs is dedicated for guest use. Should the few hundred steps to the award-winning beach be too far, consider the large, uncrowded pool located minutes away from the home, where abundant chaise lounges and sunbrellas along with professional landscaping offers a lazy oasis from reality.

The Cove community supports only 21 luxury homes, so amenities such as the private pool and tennis/basketball court are never crowded. Our home sits on a one-area parcel which is manicured and surrounded by water on three sides. Did I mention the birding?

The adjacent towns of Bethany, Dewey, Rehoboth and Ocean City, MD are reachable by bike or car. Have a culinary affair at the Culinary Coast. This region supports 100 restaurants to the North, and 100 dining venues to the South. Delaware is home to tax-free shopping and the endless outlet malls in nearby Rehoboth Beach offer plenty of upscale shopping opportunities.

The nearby Indian River inlet marina offers charter boat fishing, boat launch and docking services, dining, and a fish store selling fish right off the boat.

Join us for your next vacation and visit the award-winning beach and bay of Waters Edge.

GENERAL ACTIVITIES:
This 21-home private, gated executive community offers a private pool and tennis/basketball court. The beach for swimming, sunning, surf fishing, shell treasures and bird watching is nearby. Wander for miles in the adjacent DE Seashore Park. Biking (bikes are provided) and hiking are yours for the asking. Or just relax, eat, read, sleep, sun and veg out in screened porch or outside decks.

ACTIVITIES ON_SITE: Cruise the bay in a kayak or raft. Crabbing, clamming, fishing and bird watching in the nature preserve back yard on the property. Biking and hiking are yours for the asking. Or just relax, eat, read, sleep, sun and sip while you enjoy the panoramic views high off the Captains Walk.

Owner info

Profusion, LLC

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We love North Bethany Beach, a true quiet resort area. Executive living at its finest in a gated community with easy access to a rich variety of activities in the immediate area. This includes a private swimming pool, tennis/basketball court, nearby sparkling ocean beach, the slow culture of Southern Delaware and racy Ocean City, MD. Did I mention birding and discount shopping - no sales tax? While we love living just outside Philadelphia, PA, its such a treat to come here. Our 7 grandchildren love it too. We've flunked retirement twice, attained degrees from Drexel University and generally appreciate every minute of life we can.

Why the Owner Chose Bethany Beach, DE, USA:
North Bethany is a high value up-and-coming area which is almost fully developed yet outside the city limits. We wanted a place where we could be on the bay to observe nature at its best (we've even seen seals) but within walking distance of the beach (minutes) and I could walk to get a cup of coffee (a small restaurant is nearby). We got all three in Waters Edge plus a gorgeous home. You are welcome to come and share it with us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Situated on a one acre private peninsula, surrounded by water on 3 sides. Throughout the day you observe shore birds and other wildlife go about their business in their natural habitat. The beach sunsets are varied and simply spectacular, made even better with a Sundowner drink in hand. Privacy galore.
