Start your Delaware beach story in this charming and meticulously maintained three bed two bath single family home which sits just 1.3 miles to the Bethany Beach boardwalk and your toes in the sand. This home was thoughtfully renovated in recent years with today's must have upgrades, yet managed to retain its classic beach charm making it the best of both. The welcoming front porch which runs the entire width of the house invites you to hang out and have your morning coffee. Once inside, the light filled open floor plan with vaulted ceilings and gorgeous wide plank floors provides ample space for entertaining or hanging with family. The kitchen has a breakfast bar, glass front cabinets, granite countertops, stainless appliances, laundry closet and ample storage and is open to the dining and living areas making a great place to enjoy gatherings. The bedrooms are generously sized and both bathrooms have been beautifully updated with today's most popular finishes. The loft area makes for a great place to park the kids or have a home office. There is a screened in porch for a shady and peaceful afternoon respite with a Porch Protection System, making the space usable more months of the year. The open deck overlooking the fenced yard is perfect for basking in the sun and grilling and makes a great space for kids and pets. The home also has a one car garage for all your beach toys, and ample parking for guests. One of the homes best features is its proximity to the beach and is a short walk to the Bethany Trolley, making travel to and from the beach hassle free.

Additional upgrades include a new heat pump in 2014, a new outdoor shower, new hot water heater, new sump pump and dehumidifier in crawl space, new decking, Vinyl fencing, new flooring and carpeting, plantation shutters throughout, and professional low maintenance landscaping.

This home, with its upgrades and location makes a perfect full-time home, beach getaway or investment property with amazing rental potential and should be on your short list of homes to see.
