About Fenwick Island Homes For Sale

If you're in the hunt for a waterfront property, that's just what you'll find in the listings of Fenwick Island homes for sale. There are very few homes in this relaxed coastal community that don't offer direct water access. However, those that don't have an extremely short walk to the beach.

Fenwick Island consists of a great variety of housing styles that have helped to establish the simple, no-frills charm of this quiet location. This area was largely developed through the 1970s and '80s, although many of the larger luxury homes were built more recently. There's also a great selection of one-story homes and bungalows that are ideal for those who are looking to downsize or struggle with mobility.

Because these homes are located in such a desirable area, the housing prices tend to be a bit higher than in other areas along the Delaware coastline. That said, you'll be hard-pressed to find a community with as calm and quaint as Fenwik Island.

Homes On Fenwick Island Offer A Relaxing Atmosphere

Fenwick is one of a handful of places that allow visitors and residents the opportunity to enjoy inspiring sunrises in the morning and breathtaking sunsets in the evening, without ever leaving home. Fenwick Island, along with it's neighbors, North and South Bethany, are often referred to as Sussex County's "Quiet Beaches" due to their more family friendly, calming atmosphere. It is no accident that even in the summer months, Fenwick Island retains an easy going, calm style, in stark contrast to its neighbor to the south, Ocean City, MD. In fact, Fenwick was incorporated in 1957 by the State's General Assembly in order to keep nearby Ocean City's development from spilling over into Delaware, and forever altering the pristine shoreline of Sussex's unspoiled southern beaches.

Not everyone wants to be near the hub of Delaware's beach entertainment and attractions. That peace and quiet can be found in two communities located further south than Rehoboth and Dewey. Often called the "quiet beaches," Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island are prime spots for retirees in Delaware.

Indeed, Fenwick Island real estate is ideally suited for those seeking a quieter beach resort. A number of excellent homes exist in the region, with new developments and historic houses throughout both communities. Fenwick Island is located right along Delaware Route 1, giving you convenient access to Rehoboth to the north and Ocean City to the south.
