How important is the ocean and beach to you? Do you dream of the sound of waves waking you up with the sun in your face, or seeing that full moon over the ocean with silver waves aglow? How long have you known that SOMEDAY you will figure a way to make this dream happen? One day, maybe sooner than later, you are just going to pick a spot. You will turn off phones and distractions and listen to your heart. The sea will win. Little and big footprints and paws will win too. The day will come when your soul will speak up and not be ignored. A place by the sea cannot be denied and the time could be NOW. This oceanfront home has wide open views to the beautiful white-sand Fenwick Island Delaware beach and Seashore Park. There are many opportunities to enjoy the sea from wide decks and the interior open floor plan and living spaces. Plus it is only a short 50-foot walk to the beach path and year-round discovery in each and every season of the year. You can enjoy the serenity of beach life without even leaving your couch. This Craftsman inspired coastal cottage-style beach home is one of a kind. Originally a fishing cottage in the days when the only way to get to Fenwick Island was by boat, this oceanfront home has been substantially remodeled & expanded to maximize the approximately 180 degree view over the Delaware Seashore Park to the Delaware and Maryland Atlantic Ocean shoreline/horizon. On a clear day from the top deck, with binoculars, you can see the Cape May/Lewes Ferry make the daily crossing back and forth. This home is truly a treasure, retaining its casual beach cottage heritage with a new spirit. The 11 bedroom, 9-full bath home is actually two interrelated private tax units owned by a single individual. Held in a Condominium form of ownership, the house lives large, yet boasts a full indoor/outdoor open floor plan for family and friends to gather. The size and openness easily allow for many places to get away or come together to read, play games, visit, watch dolphins play and enjoy the sunrise, coastal breezes and quiet. There are four large oceanfront decks, two westward looking decks and a street level screened porch. As an investment property, the possibilities for income producing rentals have been successful for the current owner for approximately 20 years and are substantial. Take a good look at the photos and how the home flows and is laid out. Ask for the Special Features List for more details.
