About this listing
4 bedroom 3.5 bath beach house only a block from a rarely crowded, large, open beach. The home backs onto Prime Hook wildlife refuge which is a birder's dream location. Only 15 mins from Lewes Beach and 30 mins from Rehoboth.
Open floor plan with lots of natural light. Enjoy the views from the large deck or screened porch. Views overlooking Wildlife refuge are a birder's paradise while only a block from the beach. 3 bedrooms on the top floor with one bathroom, master bedroom and bathroom on the main floor with half bath off the laundry room. Bonus room with full bathroom on the ground floor with card table, sofa and TV. Perfect for those family members who like to stay up later but worry about keeping the rest of the group awake.
The walkway to the pier in the back of the house has been too badly damaged to allow people to walk on it. Repairs are planned at some point but the project is bigger than anticipated and will not be ready for this season. The gate leading to the walkway will be locked.
There are beach chairs and a wagon to help haul your things back and forth from the beach. Board games and Direct TV are available to help entertain the group but not every room has cable connected. WiFi is high speed cable so streaming on your own devices is possible.
