Gorgeous hidden gem in the desirable Salt Pond community of Bethany Beach. Beautifully nestled among mature plantings and specimen trees, this 4/5 bed, 3 full bath, 2,850 square foot home is the very definition of a 'must see. Everything about this house beckons you in. You enter to a huge foyer with high ceilings, lots of light and artistic details throughout. Beyond is the main living area with today s must have open floor plan including a light filled living room with gas fireplace, recessed lights, vaulted ceiling, stunning hardwood floors, a bright open kitchen with high quality quartz countertops, gas cooktop, pantry, center island with lots of space and the large dining area with stunning chandelier. This room begs for great parties with friends and family. The dining room opens to the window-filled sunroom overlooking beautiful gardens and trees, and the large wrap-around deck with views of trees and the green expanse of the golf course in the distance. Also on the main level is the large beautiful primary suite with private doors leading to the balcony, a fabulous ensuite bath with enormous shower with glass block surround and the large primary closet. Additionally, the main level offers a second full bath, an additional bedroom or home office with huge closet, the well-appointed laundry room with utility sink, and a two-car garage with lots of storage.

Upstairs is a cozy open loft area, perfect for a desk or reading nook, another full bath and three additional generously sized bedrooms. Throughout this home are lots of closets and lots of unexpected storage spaces. The home and property have been beautifully maintained and offers so many thoughtful details and artistic touches that no written description could convey. This home lives at the intersection of charm and quality, and whether you are looking for a full-time home, beach getaway or rental property, this should be your first stop.

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, pickleball and volleyball courts, a children's play area, and many other amenities. Salt Pond is short distance to restaurants, the canal trail and town park in Ocean View, and so much more. The community is composed of single-family homes and townhomes nestled through conservation land, with 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.
