About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This beautifully appointed, comfortable, relaxing 5 bedroom, 4 +1/2 bathroom, luxury ocean side beach house, is in the quiet & peaceful, gated community of Ocean Ridge.

The house is approximately 3200 square feet, only about 4 lots away from the ocean and a clean, wide, large, uncrowded, private community beach with lifeguard, an easy 3 minute walk. No highway crossing required as the house is on the ocean side of Rt 1. To the east is the Atlantic Ocean and beach, while to the west is the southern part of the Indian River Bay, and salt marshes with many birds and walking/hiking trails. Even in the 'Off season', we have perfect spring & fall days made for long walks on virtually empty beaches. After winter high tides, beach combing for seashells is ideal this time of year.

Occasionally dolphins can be seen swimming offshore. The ocean's healing and calming power is unexplainable. It's easy to relax and forget all your cares sitting on the sand, breathing in the salt air, being warmed by the sun.

The community has a electronically gated entry / security guard, and access to community pool and tennis courts in Ocean Ridge West, located across the road.

The house is the perfect place for large family reunions, or to celebrate the holidays.

It sleeps 10 comfortably, and is furnished in a contemporary and casual style, with beautiful oak hardwood floors throughout the entire third floor great room and Master Bedroom, NEW TILE FLOORS in the Kitchen, bathrooms, foyer & hall, and new carpeting on the stairs. NEW GRANITE COUNTERS in kitchen. Ceiling fans, Cable TV, and DVD players are in each bedroom & living room, while a 52" LCD HDTV, DVD and stereo are available in the expansive and comfortably appointed living room (with leather sectional) which also has a wood-burning fireplace for cooler off season days. The third floor master bedroom has a full tile shower and Jacuzzi tub. Each bedroom has sliding glass doors that open onto private balconies, and bedrooms on the front of the house open onto the wide wrap-around decks. Please note: Linens/towels not provided. *FREE* secure WI-FI high speed internet is available. Bring your laptop computer! But don't work too much. Cordless phones in each room. I pod dock able clock radios in each bedroom.

There are very large wrap-around decks on the second and third floors with comfortable chaise lounge chairs. A large screened porch, containing a ceiling fan and a teak wood dining set for 6, is on the third floor. A hammock is available for lazing away a summer day with a good book and refreshing drink. There is a new, large, stainless steel gas grill to help you create gourmet barbecue family dinners. Central air conditioning cools the house efficiently on hot days.

Under the house are two private outdoor showers, and parking for 2-3 vehicles. The driveway can hold an additional 5-6 vehicles. The surrounding garden has been landscaped with native plants and trees.

The house is located only 5 minutes from Bethany Beach, which has a nice beach, quaint stores, souvenir shops, restaurants, a boardwalk, and bandstand.

Only 15-20 minutes north is Rehoboth, which has a nice downtown/main street with many fine restaurants, clubs; large tax free shopping outlets; a great boardwalk with games and amusements for the kids; and its own nice but more crowded beach. Also, Rehoboth has cultural offerings such as many art galleries, The Rehoboth Summer Children's Theater, The Henlopen Theater Project, a multi-plex cinema (Midway) which offers the 'Arthouse Theater' showing independent films, and the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival (November).

Lewes, the first town in the first state of Delaware, is only 20 minutes away, and has many fine restaurants such as The Buttery, and Blue Plate Diner, & many wonderful antique, art galleries, and other shops. There is also a historic section dating back to the 1600s, with sites such as the Maull House, built in the 1700s and open to the public; a marina offering charter fishing trips and boat ramps; and the Marsh Island Golf Club. Also in Lewes is the beautiful Cape Henlopen State Park.

Local water sports include charter boat fishing, wind surfing, swimming, crabbing, clamming, boating, kayaking, jet skiing, sailing, sport fishing, diving, beach combing, surfing, shelling. Several beautiful state parks and beaches are within 10 minutes drive, such as Indian River Inlet, 3R's, and Delaware Seashore State Park. There is a new biking, hiking/walking trail across the highway, with free access, that takes you into the pine woods for some serene moments.

About 10 minutes south is Fenwick Island, which has the Fenwick Island State Park. 20-30 min. away is Ocean City with its huge boardwalk, amusement park with many rides, good restaurants and night clubs, antique stores, golf courses, attractions such as miniature golf and more. Your family can have a day of wild fun in Rehoboth or Ocean City and then return to your serene, private oasis at the beach.

If golfing is your hobby, you can visit one of the nearby golf courses, such as Bear Trap Dunes (in Ocean View), Salt Pond (Bethany), Cripple Creek Golf & Country Club (Dagsboro), Kings Creek Country Club (Rehoboth Bch), Old Landing Golf Course (Rehoboth), Rehoboth Beach Country Club (Rehoboth), The Rookery (Milton), Sussex Pines Country Club (Georgetown).

Come to the 'Quiet Resorts' and have a great summer (or other season) beach vacation !

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous home to have a vacation! This was our first family vacation and it was wonderful to be able to have a separate bedroom/bath and the spacious living and dining area to be together. We were fortunate to have a beautiful week, and the beach to ourselves. Everything we could have wanted to prepare meals, relax or entertain was there. Thanks for the memories.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 10th year at this house. (One year interruption). The

house is great and has provided us with many family memories. The large kithcen table and bar area allow for large families to enjoy dinners together. The grill is great to have, we used it almost every night. The family room is large and

had a large tv, stereo, and DVD. The Family room and kitchen floors were just redone two years ago with hard is lovely. All the bedrooms except one

have either King, Queen or double beds which is nice for couples. One bedroom

has two doubles.

This is a great home and only 4 houses back from a private beach in a gated

community. It has a pool and tennis court across the highway for your

enjoyment.....although it is tricky crossing the highway on foot. And you

cannot drive over to the pool b/c there is no parking on the street. The pool has a lifeguard as well as the private beach!
