The ultimate coastal-style beach home just 2 short blocks to the heart of downtown Bethany to enjoy gourmet restaurants, boutiques, evenings on the boardwalk with free entertainment and s'mores and movies on the beach. During the day, enjoy amazing guarded beaches for fun and sun. This lovely custom-built home by a very popular builder reflects pride of ownership and has been beautifully maintained over the years by the owners. You will enjoy the sun-filled 3-season room with southern exposure in the front, then step into a cheery and spacious living area with a gas fireplace, large kitchen/dining area with custom cabinetry, big center island and stainless steel appliances -- a wonderful gathering place for a joint-effort in preparing dinners for the big crowds. Spend the evening in the TV/game area for cards or scrabble, or relax on the private rear deck. On the 2nd floor, you'll find an inviting ensuite plus 4 guest rooms. This home is perfect to start your beach memories this summer. Upgrades include hardwood floors throughout, custom built-ins, central VAC, tiled bathrooms, Rinnai hot water tanks, 2 outdoor showers, plus custom paint and wallpaper. Excellent rental history at $5000 p/ week for 7 weeks -- lots of potential!
