Welcome to 31848 Shell Landing - The Sanctuary - Only steps to a private Bay beach.
A unique and rarely offered property within the Bayfront at Rehoboth community called the Sanctuary. An elegant, Schell Brothers home made for entertaining and truly blissful living with five bedrooms and four baths. A spacious primary bedroom on first floor off of living room with enormous bathroom invites for those nights you just want to relax and take a long soaker bath. With over $50,000 in upgrades, the floor to ceiling windows capture the broad sunset views and shed a warm glow all over the home. The home's design creates a natural flow with room for the entire family and includes a gourmet kitchen, with a seemingly endless island, ready for all culinary creations. Flowing off the kitchen is another first floor bedroom and bathroom leading to the two car garage with an extra four feet of space to store all the beach toys. Upstairs you'll find a loft ready for TV viewing, gaming... maybe ping pong or billiards as there is plenty of open and bright space to let your imagination go and create the perfect entertaining room. Three additional bedrooms including one ensuite flow from the loft with two full bathrooms. Notable features of Bayfront at Rehoboth - The Sanctuary: A block or so away you'll find yourself walking down a beautiful boardwalk winding through a tranquil, loblolly pine forest and arriving at a private beach, with a large two story gazebo and treated by sweeping views all across the Bay. Sit and read or relax on the sandy beach or launch your kayak or paddle board and enjoy time on the water. This is a special place where time seems to slip away in the most luxurious way! Let 2023 be the year to secure your coastal retreat and start making memories to last a lifetime! Detailed information on the setting and new nearby communities is available in the MLS.
