Imagine sitting on your very own sun-splashed, private deck while watching gulls and ospreys wheel overhead from a beautiful coastal style 3-bed, 2.5-bath WATERFRONT home in Angola by the Bay. Custom built in 2015, this home is tucked away along a quiet stretch of Burton Prong, a navigable creek that meanders through wild grasslands and joins Herring Creek, which empties into Rehoboth Bay. This modern, light-filled, comfortable space sports multiple decks, gorgeous natural views and a convenient elevator from the garage to the main (2nd) floor living space. The 2nd floor is also accessed via an outside staircase that leads to another deck at the main entrance to the home. From the front entrance you'll enter an open dining area and living room with a gas fireplace, vaulted ceiling, and a staircase to the 3rd floor loft. Many windows and a slider open to a balcony deck overlooking the creek. These windows are strategically placed to afford stunning views and southwest light from floor to ceiling in the entire living space as well as the upstairs loft sitting area, which has two bedrooms and a full bath. There is a powder room near the front door, and a large kitchen off to the right (with pantry and elevator). The spacious primary bedroom with ensuite tiled-shower bath has an entrance off the kitchen as well as the laundry room off the living area.
You'll love the gleaming wood floors, custom Hunter-Douglass window treatments and the central gas fireplace, which has a cozy, sunny reading area tucked behind it. The views from both upstairs decks are lovely and peaceful. Enjoy entertaining there or enjoying a meal while watching eagles, ducks and herons fish in the creek. The sunsets are spectacular! This would make a fantastic forever home, vacation home or seasonal rental property. Nestled in a culdesac on a quiet street, this could be your perfect oasis away from hustle and bustle. Plus, there is room for expansion with an unfinished ground floor living space that wraps around the elevator/garage hall, adding pproximately 1020 sq. ft. Already studded and insulated, it's ready for your finishing touches! This space has a separate entrance and a 40' deck along the south-west side of the home. It could be used as a game or exercise room, in-law suite or whatever your heart desires!
Like to be on the water but don't want to maintain a dock? You're in luck! This property has close access to the community's private marina and launch ramp, crab docks, shared slips and kayak launch--all maintained by the HOA. NO private docks are allowed for waterfront homes in the community.
Boat Dock West is a much-desired area of Angola by the Bay due to its proximity to the extensive (almost half-mile) waterfront area, so bring your boat! Or enjoy walking along the waterfront and resting on one of the many benches and swings that overlook the water. There is also access to mature forested common areas, miles of wooded walking trails, in-ground community saltwater pool, picnic pavilion, clubhouse, playground and sport courts. You'd be hard pressed to find another gated neighborhood in Sussex County with so many amenities for such a low HOA cost--only $800/year. All the benefits of a waterfront community and access to boating, fishing and crabbing without the costs of maintaining a dock. Homeowners have access to the private launch ramp and shared community slips on a first-come-first-served basis (can be in slip for up to 14 continuous days, then must be out for 7 days). With this home you have NO septic or well to worry with, and LOW taxes--what could be better? Call to arrange your private tour today!
