Start your Delaware beach story in this classic southern charmer in the desirable Salt Pond community of Bethany Beach. This beautiful home features all that you need and more than you could ask for in a full time, part time or rental home. Situated on one of the best lots in Salt Pond and nestled among protected woods, this 5-bedroom, 4 full bathroom, 4,600 sq. ft. home evokes grand coastal living and offers amazing privacy and tons of space. The first thing to welcome you is the inviting front porch that extends to around the entire home. Inside, the main living area features today’s must-have open floor plan with living, dining and kitchen spaces flanked by windows overlooking the beautiful trees of the protected conservation lands. The space is perfect for entertaining both large and small groups. The spacious living area has a convenient gas fireplace that is ideal on a wintry night. Adjoining that, right in the heart of the home where it belongs, is the kitchen of any chef’s dreams. There is a massive granite island, tons of counter space, a commercial range with griddle and double oven, ample cabinet storage, and a walk-in pantry the size of a small bedroom! The kitchen opens to a huge, screened porch and deck overlooking the beautiful woods. You simply won’t find a better or more peaceful setting. The main level also has a bedroom with separate access to the shared full bath. Upstairs is the enormous primary suite, complete with sitting area and private deck and a huge en suite bath with dual sinks, soaking tub and separate shower. There are two additional large bedrooms and a very large bath with lots of closets and ancillary storage. The lower level features a generous laundry room with washer and dryer, an additional full bath, and a bedroom with divider doors that open to a second living area, giving you flexibility for how to use the space. This area makes for a perfect home office, complete with separate entrance, or an additional gathering space for friends or family. Other features include a covered hot tub, garage for all your beach toys, and fully owned solar panels. This is a property full of charm that must be seen to be believed.
In addition to being less than a mile from the beach, the Salt Pond Community offers a mid-length, executive 18-hole golf course, a community recreational center, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis and pickleball courts, volleyball court, shuffleboard court, and children's play area. There is a put-in at the Salt Pond for kayaks leading to Assawoman Canal. The community is composed of single-family homes and town homes all nestled in established, tree filled streets with wonderful walking and bike paths nearby. Many residents are full time while others maintain seasonal homes. Salt Pond is uniquely situated for Delaware beach lovers, as it is about midway between the resort communities of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware to the north and Ocean City, Maryland to the south.
