Ocean View Community Info

The Ocean View community enjoys a prime location just 1 mile west of Delaware’s beautiful Atlantic Coastline, which includes the always popular resort community of Bethany Beach. Legend has it that early residents could catch glimpses of the ocean from the second floors of their homes and a new community was so named! The town of Ocean View has seen incredible growth in the past several decades, similar to many of the small towns and communities that have become bedroom communities to the popular resort communities on the coast.

The community and Ocean View homes for sale are located directly adjacent to Millville. This is where the majority of local residents go to get everyday supplies. Ocean View is almost entirely residential, making it necessary for locals to make the short trip to neighboring communities for most supplies.

Ocean View is lauded for its refreshingly quiet suburban environment. US Route 26 cuts right through the northern portions of the village, creating a direct and convenient link to coast and its beaches.
