Property description

Escape frenetic city life to the serenity of heron and osprey calls, sunset over Little Assawoman Bay (literally, your back yard) with panoramic Bay views from 2 balconies and windows on 3 levels-- YET-- just across the street from the pounding surf of the most desirable section of the Delaware State Park seashore --
Rated #1 again this year for clean swimming water by National Resources Defense Council. There is even an ocean view from the picture window on the second floor landing. Email for additional pix of interior and views.This ideal 4 bedroom hideaway in desirable Kings Grant is on a unique barrier island at the nexus of the Atlantic Ocean and Little Assawoman Bay-- at this point only a few hundred yards apart. In almost no other venue on either coast is there such direct access to both.
At your doorstep and literally in front and under your balconies is the Bay, with views of numerous islands and wetlands, with its attendant wildlife--and the pier for your use for boating, crabbing or just swinging your legs. The pool, just steps from your door, is ON THE BAY with stunning views and breezes for swimming, reading or just contemplation.
And just cross the two lane road to the walkway over the most significant dunes in the 20+ mile stretch of beach from Rehoboth to Ocean City. Unlike the other towns, Fenwick Island has always protected its dunes from over-development and they are of a size and wildness rarely seen, with 75 acres of protected (undeveloped) dunes and beach for 2.5 miles, beginning literally a few feet from your crossover at the far end of Kings Grant.
Stroll the miles of broad beach and Cape Cod style dunes with the ocean on one side and the bay on the other, counting the pods of dolphin (over 300,000 of them make this area their summer home) who frequently come into the breakers area to say hello and put on a show with their acrobatics.
Situated on the edge of 50 acres of protected dunes, this is the essence of the Quiet Resort of residential (unincorporated) Fenwick Island. You can swim in the ocean or the pool, body surf and boogie board, kayak on the bay or with the dolphins in the ocean, crab or take prized photographs from the pier, fish from either the pier or in the ocean surf across the street, or walk 2+ miles north on an unobstructed protected beach with dunes on one side and ocean on the other til you reach South Bethany. Or walk 2 miles to Ocean City in the other direction. All without getting in a car.
And bring your dog, to walk or to swim in the surf, because this area
of beach is one of the very few in the nation that permits dogs on
the beach 365 days a year, 24 hrs per day (on leash, of course). And
well behaved dogs are welcome in this house (only one at a time please) where the new bamboo floors are indestructible, as well as charming.
Fabulous photo opps on the Bay in high season or off season, when a roaring fire is a fitting end to an autumn or spring day at the beach.
Located 1 mile from Fenwick Island town, 2 miles from South
Bethany, and 2 miles from the action of Ocean City, this 3-4 bedroom, 3.5
bath townhouse is part of the premier Kings Grant association.
Sleeping 8 (not including LR sleep sofas), this house is ideal for a family (one species or two), for 2-3 couples or for a small 'circle of friends' to spend a relaxing week away from it all. Improvements made in winter 2010 include new expanded screened-in lower deck, enlarged open lower deck, and much larger open upper deck off MBR; all new doors, sliders and windows, and new siding and front porch deck.
High speed wireless access means you can stay in touch while counting the herons and egrets in the bay on one of the three decks.
And you will snack, drink and be merry on the decks, dine with full bay views (and make full use of the electric barbecue grill).
This house is fully furnished, including complete cook’s kitchen, two queen beds, pair of twin beds and a euro sofa bed in den that sleeps two. In addition to its proximity to Bethany and Ocean City, with its Boardwalk and kids' activities, this beach hideaway is 25 min to Rehoboth, with its sophisticated nightlife and shopping (and tax free outlets).
Direct Bay front with unobstructed views north and south and west, as well as a small ocean view from the front of the house. Kings Grant has both a pier on the bay and a crosswalk over the dunes to the beach (right across the street). Little Assawoman Bay provides opportunities for sailing, wind surfing, boating, fishing, kayaking, clamming or crabbing. And of course beach combing, hiking, biking, bird watching, sightseeing/shopping, fine and casual dining and nightlife, amusement parks and miniature golf are all available nearby.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

Why the Owner Chose Fenwick Island, DE, USA:
It is the stunning views of Little Assawoman Bay in the 'back yard' that hooked us! Not to mention the 'private' feel of the beach at Kings Grant, the undeveloped expanse of beach and dunes, and also the pool right on the bay.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Whether at the beach or gazing at the bay, you can easily imagine that you are 'away from it all.' Yet this location allows you the opportunity to reach many of the highlights, amenities, and activities of the DE-MD shore--Fenwick Island, Ocean City, MD, Bethany Beach, Dewey Beach, Rehoboth Beach--in little time.
