This exclusive property provides you with the availability of unlimited activities & adventures that few people are privileged enough to experience. Located on the south end of Broadkill Beach, this spacious four bedroom property faces the sandy beach just a few steps from your front door & your private pathway to the beach. To the back of the property is your own private dock & boat ramp giving you access to the Broadkill River, Delaware Bay & the Atlantic Ocean.
Instead of parking problems, heavy traffic & crowded beaches, a typical day could look something like this:
In the early morning, from your master bedroom’s private sundeck; view the eastern sky & large ships that appear small, moving effortlessly through a vast body of water while you are enjoying your first cup of coffee. Walk over your small dune that reveals the shoreline of the Delaware Bay; sooth your soul by feeling the calmness of a new day. As you watch the pink, orange, & gold sunrise over the water, the calm changes, you feel a breeze coming from the salty sea, you see & hear the waves begin to lap onto the beach, birds appear, start chirping, & move toward the one foot surf; you now know why Broadkill Beach is the best kept secret in all of Delaware.
Linger & watch the Cape May/Lewes Ferry travel across the mouth of the Delaware Bay to its destination. Watch dolphins playing, splashing & catching fish just in front of you. Walk north toward the Broadkill Store, turn over stranded horseshoe crabs & stop to investigate the life on & around the rock jetty. At low tide look for hermit crabs, starfish, conchs & other sea life in the shallow water around these rocks. Read, relax, swim & take a nap at the water’s edge & refresh yourself with lunch in the cool air conditioning of your retreat just behind the small dune you crossed over earlier in the day.
Walk south from your private beach path toward Beach Plum Island State Park, & ask the fishermen if they are catching anything today. Look south & identify the Roosevelt Inlet, historic Lewes, Henlopen Point & the breakwater lighthouse.
Return to your resting place, take an outdoor shower & plan your evening by making sure you are back home to sit on the bench seats of your private dock to watch a spectacular sunset over a Wildlife Refuge & waterway adjoining your own backyard.
Imagine the convenience of having your own private boat launch & dock, giving you access to limitless activities & adventures that few people would be fortunate enough to discover or experience. Spend the day fishing & crabbing from the dock, exploring winding tributaries in the backwaters, drifting on the Broadkill River, charging through the Roosevelt Inlet into the open expanse of the Delaware Bay & Atlantic Ocean waiting for you to experience all it has to offer.
Bring your toys, if you don’t you’ll wish you had. Launch your own boat, jet skis, canoes, kayaks & other flotation vessels into the backwaters. Navigate south on the Broadkill River to Lewes for a cocktail & meal at the waterside restaurants. Go out Roosevelt Inlet for bay fishing or jet skiing. Come around on the bay to your home at Broadkill & take the family for a ride on the jet skis, go tubing & wakeboarding, take the speed boat for a sightseeing tour, or load everyone up on the pontoon boat for a day trip & picnic lunch. Head back in the Inlet & get a gasoline fill-up on the water at the north end of Lewes.
Your dock is long enough to hold a 24 foot pontoon boat in the water for the week & still have plenty of room to crab, fish, catch minnows, sunbathe, put up a baby pool, fill with water, sit, & relax. Replenish your mind & soul with the serenity of the environment, meditate, read, & experience the sunset from the dock of your private oasis.
