Middlesex Beach Properties and Real Estate

Middlesex Beach is a small and quiet community located just steps away from the oceanfront. It is situated between Bethany Beach and South Bethany, two other popular waterfront communities. Middlesex Beach, however, is a private community (unlike the aforementioned areas), and is made up of a small number of residential streets. 

 

The community offers tranquil living amongst welcoming neighbors. The Middlesex Beach Association posts news and important resident information, and helps set up events for the community. As a desirable area for both rental and year-round properties, there is no updated population information currently. 

 

Situated right off of the Coastal Highway, Middlesex Beach is divided into east and west sections. The former is comprised of smaller streets and beachfront properties. The west is characterized by long roads lined with tall trees.

Real Estate in Middlesex Beach

As previously mentioned, the real estate market in Middlesex Beach is made up of both rental properties and year-round residents. The community itself is primarily residential, with some commercial areas along the highway. Detached homes in Coastal styles are found along the region's few roads. 

 

Middlesex Beach is also divided into two sides, the east and the west, although the west has been lovingly nicknamed the "Pine Side" by the locals. This is because the east faces the ocean, whilst properties west of the highway are tucked away into the thick pine (and other) trees that populate the area. Properties on the west side are also separated from the traffic sounds of the Coastal Highway by Beach Plum Road, which spans the entire community north to south. 

 

The main streets run east to west, and do continue onto the other side of the highway: Short Road, Bayberry Road, Errett Road, Bridge Road, Addy Road, and Evergreen Road. On the east side is Dune Road, which houses some of the most desirable properties, for they back onto the beach and often have private access. 

 

Properties in Middlesex Beach typically sell at luxury price points. These single-family homes usually have multiple bedrooms and bathrooms and comfortable square footage. Homes on the Pine Side do have desirable landscaping—that is, mature trees that hide these properties from view of the street. However, front and backyards are not always the best to run around and play in, which is why back decks are a very popular home feature.

Middlesex Beach History

The history of Middlesex Beach dates back to the 1800s, and its name is thought to have come from the England county. The first development in the region (as it was first a farm with sprawling, untouched land) began in late-1959/early 1960. Middlesex Beach was built with the intention of it being a beautiful, private beach community. 

 

Homes in the area were developed by the Short, Errett, and Addy families, after it was sold by Joseph Johler. D.F.D Construction Company also built many of the area homes. 

Middlesex Beach: Highlights and Attractions

As a private community, Middlesex Beach offers some excellent amenities. This includes a private parking for resident use. These parking spaces are located on the east side, behind the Middlesex Beach private gates.

 

All Middlesex Beach residents can access the area beach, although beach and parking passes are required. The community often hosts events and get-togethers, which is a great way to get to know neighbors. Volunteers are the driving force behind these projects. 

 

While most of Middlesex Beach is residential, shops and restaurants are located along the Coastal Highway in the plaza. Of course, there are a multitude of other options both north and south of the community. This also includes outdoor recreation. Boating, camping, and golfing are other popular area activities.
