Light, airy luxury home on deep-water canal with private boat ramp and dock! Remodeled summer 2009 with beautiful hardwood floors in main living areas, granite countertops, spacious well equipped gourmet kitchen, outdoor solar lighting, and a double hammock for relaxing by the water. With 2 separate wings upstairs that overlook the living area, it is ideal for 2 families to share. Each wing has 2 bedrooms and a full bath. Both waterfront master bedrooms, one queen and one king, have private decks overlooking the water. The 2nd bedrooms in each wing have 2 twins each. The main living area has soaring cathedral ceilings, many windows, lots of light, wood-burning fireplace, wet bar, game table, and an additional half bath. There is a delightful screened porch, outside shower, large separate laundry room, and nicely landscaped back yard with picnic table for enjoying meals by the water and adirondack chairs for relaxing watching the boats go by enjoying the spectacular sunsets. Shops and restaurants are just a short walk away (Grotto Pizza, McCabes Gourmet Market where your pets can join you as you sip your morning coffee), the tackle shop to outfit you for fishing, and other unique shops. The beach is a leisurely 10 minute (or a brisk 5 minute), walk from the house. Should you prefer to bike, bike racks are available at the beach, and a parking pass is provided for those preferring to drive. Although Bethany Beach does not allow dogs in season, the State park is adjacent to the beach (just steps away) where they are welcome anytime as long as they are under control. The house has ample off-street parking for 4+ cars in addition to your boat(s).

Private Boat Ramp and Dock
Bring your boat, and tie it up at local restaurants for dinner! A great house for entertaining, with areas equipped for indoor dining in house or on screened porch & outdoor dining on deck or on large picnic table by water.
The house is especially great for entertaining, with its full wet bar, large gourmet kitchen, fireplace, screened porch, 3 decks, and lovely landscaped yard. It's also great for relaxing and watching the spectacular Bethany sunsets.
Situated on a quiet street, the home is a short 2.5-block walk (10 minutes at a leisurely pace, or 5 minutes at a brisk pace)to the beach; however, a beach parking pass is included if you prefer to drive. Restaurants and shopping are also nearby.
Well behaved pets on prescription flea control medication considered. Home is at the border of the state park, where dogs on leach are allowed on the beach. After October, they are also allowed on the beach in Bethany. Don't leave beloved family members behind!

Owner and her dogs enjoying the beach at nearby (walk-to from house) Fenwick Island State Park.
Our main requirement was the boat ramp. Love to be on the water and explore the back bays by boat, cruise to local restaurants and tie up for lunch/dinner, watch the sunsets from the decks and watch the ducks that frequent the canal. All this, plus just a short walk to the beach. A second key reason is the proximity to the state park (just to the South) where we can enjoy the beach with our dogs. The third reason was the quiet location at the southern edge of Bethany --- away from it all, yet still very close.
Great for the dogs! Walk to state park where they are allowed 24 hours a day. Walk to McCabe's Gourmet Market for morning coffee and breakfast --- patio is dog friendly and they always come with us! Watching the ducks swim by from the decks or screened porch is a favorite pastime of mine, and boating/kayaking in the canals and bay is great.
