Ocean-block beauty in Bethany Beach! Nestled off Coastal Hwy. and merely steps to sandy dunes and stretch of glorious water, this season-ready 4 BRs/2 bath home melds together abundant character and charm amid adorable beach town. Sequence of towering pine trees offers natural green screen from neighboring road, while quiet street leads straight to the ocean. Open stone multiple-car driveway grants access to pillared under-home parking where there is 2-seat swing that is adjacent to front door of this cream-wood home of front decks, pitched roof, succession of windows and 3 sets of glass sliding doors. Front door opens to quaint entry, where hooks stand ready for towels and sweatshirts and deep alcove for stashing beach chairs, umbrellas and sand toys. Wide, open-slotted hardwood steps lead to sun-infused, dune-colored carpeted main space. Vaulted knotty pine ceiling with dropped ceiling fan soars upward, exuding beach-inspired ambiance. Collection of couches and chairs create conversation areas and approachable space, while 2 alcoves add extra room and are perfect for chest and desk. 3 sets of glass sliders envelope space in natural light and lead to deck spanning front and side, allowing one to step out, breath in and relish sun and sea air! From peaceful moments from dawn to dusk to bountiful BBQs with friends and family, this outside venue marks the perfect place to enjoy all the seasons have to offer! Gate at top of deck opens easily and steps lead down to stone driveway, offering 2nd access point to home. Exposed knotty pine wood ceiling beam is only marker of DR boundaries, which is interconnected to FR. Bump-out on DR side wall is home to triple window with accent side window and creates valuable additional space, giving the go-ahead for large DR table and parties that are sure to happen thanks to spacious room. Kitchen sits to back of home, but in no means, is left out of the equation of open main space. Oversized pass-through window and extended countertop for bar stools instantly link rooms and make kitchen even larger and airier, while offering instant seating for morning coffee or more substantial meals! Minimalistic-style cream cabinets with wood trim are paired with white/cream appliances, including must-have DW. A nook, ideal for high-top table is tucked off side and DD closet slides back to reveal easy-access, but out-of-the-way W & D. This main space is efficient and effortlessly delightful! Just off FR are 2 BRs, both with continued carpeting and deep closets. One of the BRs features glass sliding doors that lead out to wrap-around deck. Step outside and enjoy hum of early morning or relish quiet star-studded evenings! Wood-floored full bath with tub/shower resides on this level and boasts pelican-gray color vanity and its own linen closet. There is also roomy hall closet for expanded storage. Architectural interest peaks at 2nd-level! Steps lead up to spacious and open vaulted knotty pine ceiling loft, lending bungalow charm to area. Wood-railed balcony overlook spans one full wall and looks below to FR. 4 square windows sit high on wall above overlook and offer splashes of natural light. Its space that envelopes you in comfort and invites you to relish post-beach-day relaxing. Read a book. Catch the news. Take a nap. BR3 also features dune-color carpeting, vaulted ceiling and roomy DD closet, while hall bath touts driftwood-style flooring, cream vanity with wood trim and shower. Vaulted-ceiling MBR is larger with 2 DD closets, offering space for his-and-hers wardrobes and accessories, and glass sliding doors that lead out to private, 2nd-level deck, offering bird~s-eye view of scenic street and beach-goings.
