Come for a visit to Betterton in Autumn/Winter: In the Fall and Winter Kent County comes to life in a new way! While in the summer Betterton beach is full of swimmers, in the autumn the beach becomes a magnificent back-drop to sail boats dotting the Bay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Our family is from the Philadelphia area, just 2 hour drive to Betterton, Maryland. Our careers are medical/hospital related and insurance managers. We grew up in the northeast section of Philadelphia, a suburban of approximately 20 miles north of downtown Philadelphia. One us was born in Italy and immigrated to the USA as a very small child. We still have family in southern Italy and visit there as often as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Betterton, MD, USA:
Our family has owned this home since 1997; we are from the Philadelphia area and when we made a decision to purchase a "beach house" we wanted a place to reflect a beach community of a bygone era. We stumbled into Betterton on a snowy, cold winter day. As soon as we came up Main Street and saw the Bay below and the beach signs, we knew this would be the place for our "beach house." The first summer in Betterton we were so pleasantly surprised at the peacefulness of the community; the friendliness of the neighbors -- they waving as they pass by. This would prove to us that we would always have a place to relax and enjoy the company of family, friends, and neighbors in a way that we could have only dreamed. The very first upgrade would be to expand the deck because we knew this would be where we could view the bay and watch the boats; we could congregate for morning coffee, eat our meals outdoors and generally enjoy outdoor living. As time went by, we converted the heating system to a modern day convenience -- central air conditioning. This proved to be challenging in a house built in 1929, but it was accomplished! The kitchen is generally vintage (as we like to say) and I can just imagine my grandmother cooking up a big family meal in there! Hope you will enjoy this home as your own!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our beach house is vary spacious and no photo can capture the large open spaces and common areas where a large amount of people can gather together for a meal, play games, or simply talk!
