For much of its later history it served agricultural functions, including the raising of broiler-sized chickens, but these days Ocean View homes for sale have been constructed to appeal to those who looking for a first or second home near the Atlantic seaside. With the resort town of Bethany Beach just down the road, Ocean View is an attractive proposition for anyone looking to live delightfully close to this Atlantic playground.
This charming small community is perfect for families looking to live in comfort and serenity along Ocean View's Gold Coast, but its largest group of year-round residents includes the active retirees who have transformed the area into the perfect escape.
