This original beach home has been well cared for and is located in the beautiful and gated community of Ocean Village in North Bethany Beach. This community offers a wide beach area that is guarded and close to downtown Bethany for shopping and dining. Many beachgoers walk right into town! Originally built in the 1960s, the current owners have maintained the cottage charm of this home with open, beamed ceilings, wood-paneled walls, and light-filled living space with large windows. Most recent improvements include a new roof (6–8 years), new dryer (2021), new dishwasher (2020), and three ductless HVAC units (2022). You can't miss the gleaming hardwood floors throughout the whole house. This property offers four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the main level and an open kitchen/living room concept on the second floor. Enjoy sitting on the front, screened-in porch, where you will have a small ocean view during most of the year. There is also a large rear deck that could easily be converted to additional living space. There is also plenty of room under the home to hang out as well and to play on the included ping-pong table! Positioned just steps to the ocean on a cul-de-sac, Kittiwake Drive is the end street, and this home is tucked back with some nice shady trees. Located just four houses to the private beach access via a boardwalk, you can enjoy the beach and all that Bethany has to offer! This lovingly cared-for home is offered turn-key/ furnished and would make a great rental property.
