Why Nancie Crespi chose Bethany Beach

Our 34973 Belle Rd house is in a lovely waterfront setting. You can sit out on the back deck and have a view of a lagoon. The house is in a neighborhood called Bay View Park, right on the edge of Little Assawoman Bay, which is a wildlife refuge. There are many ducks and birds in the area and crabbing available off the back deck. You can walk three blocks to the beach of park along the road to the beach with our neighborhood parking permits. We have a boat dock and you can bring a kayak and go kayaking out on our lagoon which flows out to Little Assawoman Bay.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits including not having to climb any stairs to get into the house and being able to step right out onto our back deck for a relaxing waterfront view. The upper level porch is also fun for eating breakfast outdoors in the morning and looking out at the lagoon view.
