Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Every year, since we started coming to Bethany for summer vacation, we spent at least one day looking at beach houses. We came close to buying a Sea Colony unit but really pictured ourselves grilling outside with ocean breezes in the background. In 1992, an agent steered us to the house, and we decided to go forward together with a partner. Avid tennis players, we loved the idea of being on the ocean and also having access to great tennis courts, hard tru as well as indoor courts. The house needed some updating: the first year we more than doubled the deck and made significant changes, opening up walls with windows. Each year, hard to believe how many it has been, we have made some updates...because we love the space and want to keep it a wonderful spot for us and our families

Why the Owner Chose Bethany Beach, DE, USA:
Great location, , open family area, screen porch, beach with life guards that is not as crowded as in the downtown area, plenty of parking for friends, cozy and well-equipped kitchen, easy to get to, nearby outlet centers, lots of local playgrounds for the little ones, easy to get to Rehoboth and Ocean City, perfect place to relax, and the list goes on and on.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is truly having the best of both worlds staying in this house, whether in midsummer or in spring or fall. You can access Sea Colony's pools, indoor and outdoor tennis, fitness centers and family social events but you also have the privacy of your own single home, screen porch, oceanfront deck and walkway to the beach. And you can stroll down to the center of Bethany in about 8 minutes, missing out on the need to find a meter and park the car. There are very few homes that offer the option to have it all in Bethany.
