Bay Forest at Bethany Beach was planned and developed by award winning Natelli Communities and was voted #1 Best in America Living Community by the National Association of Home Builders in 2019. This gorgeous 5BR/3BA home, built by NVR includes many upgrades. Sited on a cul-de-sac and backing to tall, thick holly trees, it has plenty of side and rear yard space to play or enjoy life near the beach. The house has been pet-free and smoke-free and is in excellent condition. With gleaming hardwood floors throughout the main living areas and carpeting in all the bedrooms, this home gives a warm and welcome feeling when you walk through the door. When you enter the home, the formal dining room is on the right – it is currently used as music room. It could also be an office or study because the kitchen has table space and there is a sun/morning room (with a cathedral ceiling) that the owners use as a formal dining room. A French door leads from the sun room to the back yard. The kitchen features 2 pantries, upgraded wood and glass front cabinets with a dark cherry finish, and granite counters, including a raised counter with additional eating space. The kitchen includes stainless steel appliances -- refrigerator, built-in microwave, electric cooktop and double wall ovens. The center of the main level is the large open living/family room, kitchen and sunroom area –light abounds year-round because of the many windows. During winter months, the stone-surround gas fireplace, with a large raised hearth provides warmth and ambiance. (There is a hookup above the fireplace to install your TV.) You’ll have the ability to configure these rooms to suit YOUR lifestyle. The Primary bedroom suite is on the main level. There are 2 additional main level bedrooms that share a second full bathroom. The primary bedroom has a lighted tray ceiling. The en-suite bathroom was upgraded to include an enclosed shower, Jacuzzi bathtub, private water-closet, and large walk-in closet. The second bedroom at the front of the house has a cathedral ceiling and shares a full bathroom with shower/tub with the 3rd bedroom. Also on the main level are the laundry room (with cable/AV panel), entry to the house from the 2-car garage, and several closets. At the center of the foyer is a sweeping staircase to the upper level, which includes a full bath with tub/shower and the 4th bedroom (with access to unfloored attic storage space from the closet.) Across the hall is a large open bonus room (with a wall mount for your TV) that could be used as a 5th bedroom or family/media/game room – whatever suits your lifestyle. Bay Forest abounds with amenities unmatched in Sussex County at this price point. These include a clubhouse with a lounge, fireplace, cable TV, grille, game room and Women's & Men's lockers opening to 3 pools (including a lazy river). There are 4 tennis courts & a tennis pavilion, outdoor basketball, children's play areas, a putting green, bocce lawns, horseshoe pits & a fire pit. The new Rec Barn features a basketball court or 3 pickle ball courts and can be used for parties/celebrations. The Rec Barn opens onto the Great Lawn, with two new pools and expansive decks, a grille/snack bar, and an exercise facility that includes a dance/yoga studio with resilient flooring. The Kayak Launch sports a long pier with amazing views of the Indian River Bay & Bridge and rentable kayak storage space. There's a seasonal Beach Shuttle (5 days/week). The Shearwater Drive Bridge (which crosses Collins Creek) unites Bay Forest's two sections while offering extraordinary views of the salt marsh and the Indian River Bay. There are 15+ miles of sidewalks. Bay Forest is 5 Miles from Bethany Beach. Whether this is your second home or year-round residence, this house and the community and towns and beaches offer a wonderful escape or year-round lifestyle. Natural Gas is coming to Bay Forest and the owners have approved the conversion.
